    I have been working at Sheppard Pratt Health System full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I worked at Sheppard Pratt Health System

    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...

    Pros

    Being able to make a positive impact with patients

    Cons

    Unfair, bullying and very disrespectful management with upper management and HR doing nothing about it (my manager has yelled at me over the most simple suggestions or benign requests). Only fair pay with no room for advancement. It is at times a very dangerous work environment. Rotating shifts with no control over your schedule--flexible 12 hour shifts are not offered. Mandating is a constant and if you refuse you...

    Advice to Management

    Survey and really listen to your front-line staff (RN's, MHW's, Unit Clerks and S.W.'s). Eliminate ineffective middle management who are ruining this hospital. Increase pay and hire more milieu managers. Allow self scheduling on all the units with the option for 12 hour shifts.
