    I have been working at Sheppard Pratt Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like working in the Nursing Dept. My co-workers are really nice and helpful and my supervisor has been really cool...super supportive & jumps in to help out when needed.

    Cons

    All departments are short staffed. Nursing pay isn't bad but I've heard direct care staff don't get paid well which is unfortunate bc they put up with the most crap.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay. More training & staff education.

    Pros

    The best part of the position was being able to work with the patients. They were the major reason why I stayed.

    Cons

    A few mental health workers did the majority of the work. Others where talking or just hanging around. It is hard to get promoted.

    More competitive salaries and listen to employee feedback

    Pros

    Sheppard Pratt Health System is a huge Non-profit organization that is great to work for. The Human Resources department is extremely helpful and involved, co-workers and management are overall friendly, and they really embrace a culture of care for the employees. The salary is competitive (depending on your position) and the benefits are great. This has been one of the best jobs I've had.

    Cons

    They do not do holiday pay. You have to use your personal time during holidays which can put you in a bind if you have not accrued; or you are a per diem or part time.

    Pros

    Working at Sheppard Pratt has been one of the best experiences of my life. I was able to get trained on every unit and learn so much during my time there. This organization is passionate about mental health. A lot of people will complain about how employees are treated but I felt beyond appreciated there.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great, you have to be in it because you love it, not just to get a paycheck- although you do get a Christmas bonus which I have yet to find with any other company. If you're not careful in picking up overtime you can easily burn out.

    I have been working at Sheppard Pratt Health System full-time

    Pros

    Mission is great, but I think a lot of employees don't live and breathe the mission like they should. I think Dr. Trivedi's vision for the organization is inspiring and exciting to be apart of.

    Cons

    Culture and accountability comes from the top down. People see the things that certain people in senior management get away with everyday. Why would you want to set that kind of example to everyone else? Nothing will ever change if that doesn't change. Turnover will continue to be horrendous and the culture will continue to be extremely negative because you're showing everyone that bullying is acceptable. Please hold EVERYONE accountable for they way they treat others (not just the ones at the bottom of the totem pole).
