    Pros

    They really care about their employees and their patients. The managers make a great effort to motivate and inspire employees to perform to their best abilities.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes come across like bringing in a lot of money is a top priority, but that can be said for any organization.

  3. "Overworked and Underpaid"

    Pros

    Sense of personal accomplishment when challenging patients meet with success

    Cons

    If you can not supervise yourself and teach yourself everything that you need to know on the job, this is not the department for you.

    If you need external praise/recognition, this is not the department for you.

    If you want to work with the feeling that you are drowning in direct care, charting, casework, and staff meetings where you are told what new responsibilities you have and feedback is not welcome, then this is definitely the department for you.

    Advice to Management

    Management by examining spreadsheets is not an effective way to run any business, much less the business of helping.

    Provide direct supervision to new clinicians, including observing them facilitating group treatment.

    Management by "walking around" would help in understanding the population we serve.

    Express appreciation to your staff on the work that they do with the very compromised patients we serve and the contributions that they make to the program instead of focusing on the negative, much less important aspects of this extremely demanding job.

    Medical treatment of patients. Good treatment of patients.

    Be up front about your true intentions. Don't be sneaky, don't be vicious.
