      Neutral Outlook

      I have been working at Stars Behavioral Health Group full-time

      Pros

      They provide individual and group supervision, and good benefits.

      Cons

      There has been a consistent and historical issue with the communication styles between management and employees. The expectations are high and unreaslistic to live a balanced life. Stars does not take self-care seriously, and will work you until your last drop.

      Advice to Management

      Improve communication and positive reinforcement to boost moral and a positive energy. I feel it would be helpful to have upper management make themselves present in team meetings to get non-judgmental feedback, and will not reprimand employees that voice their concerns and needs. It is important to help your employees feel heard and safe to share their needs and honest thoughts.

        Positive Outlook

        I have been working at Stars Behavioral Health Group full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Get paid to earn your BBS Associate hours. Welcoming company Great staff to work with

        Cons

        Lots of instability with staff. Causes conflicts in scope of practice.

        Advice to Management

        Get it together. Well-paid employees won't leave to other companies as quickly. At least if the health benefits rates were cheaper, I think that would help sustain employees longer.
