Mental Health Technician Part Time/Contingent (Current Employee) –  Warren, MIJune 23, 2017
Disorganized, to say the least. Policies need to be set in black and white, there are to many gray areas and loop holes, which becomes dangerous for staff and patients. I feel like majority of staff and all of management lacks compassion for people who are mentally ill. It is sad to me because it could really be an inspiring place for the patients if management actually cared about their well being.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIMarch 30, 2017
Great management and leadership team. Continually looking for ways to improve hospitals for employees and patients. Worklife balance is awesome. Opportunity for overtime, but not mandatory. 8 hour shifts for clinical staff. Can be difficult due to patient population, but wonderful to see patients get well and discharged!

Don't drink the Kool-Aid
Grunt (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIJanuary 29, 2017
The thought of being appreciated or valued does not exist. It is all about the money and not the about the patient or the employee. You are punished for standing up for yourself and the patients. There is no room for your ideas or opinions. It is the worst place most people have ever worked, so they say. There are certain rules for certain people, management is ineffective and incompetent. It is all for show.They are punitive and unpredictable.Good employees leave due to the abuse. It's a dead end road.
Pros
mental illness is job security
Cons
resistant to change

a great place to work
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIJanuary 23, 2017
Working as a MY was very rewarding, the fact that you can provide a patient with the tools to help overcome the way they feel. The hardest part is not being able to help a patient feel better.
Pros
great staff
Cons
unfair at times

Hello, I feel it was great working for this company. I like coming to work and seeing all the employees in great moods. It's a great place to work.
Charge nurse (Current Employee) –  Behavioral Center of MIchiganOctober 26, 2016
The job is interesting. I like coming to work and seeing all the employees in great moods. It's a great place to work.
The hardest part of this job is that it can get overwhelming at times when there are too many priorities and only one of you, so sometimes it takes skill and experience to be able to deal with the everyday work.
Pros
nice staff
Cons

Rewarding work with patient population
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIMarch 21, 2016
I enjoyed most of what my job entailed at Behavioral Center of Michigan, but I felt there was no room for advancement. Even if I was granted an interview to further myself into a higher position in the company, the administration would hire an outsider, or a former employee who was fired several years before for insubordination.

I felt as if I had plateaued in my position, and I only received one raise in nearly 4 years.

Don't risk your license in this death trap of a job.
nurse (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIFebruary 6, 2015
This is not an equal opportunity employer. The place has many many complaints of nepotism filed against them. The coworkers are great, but I've had patients wake up and think they were in a foreign country. They hire family and friends first and give them staffing and shift priority, and pay no attention to seniority whatsoever. The only thing good and the only reason anyone ever stayed was because the staff all became friends to cope with the terrible work environment and treatment. The management discusses employees with other employees, including personal details and private information. The management is extremely bias and unfair and will give preference to contingent staff for scheduling. They will take every advantage of using you every chance that they can for all the overtime they need for example, but you will never be given consideration for scheduling you off for a personal need. The intake department will take any medically compromised patient that the facility isn't equipped to handle. The rounds aren't done by the staff. The benefits are very expensive and the coverage is terrible. Staff and patients get hurt and if you are being assaulted, there is little code assistance at times.
Pros
The staff remain great friends, even after we all quit.
Cons
poor management, disconnected HR who don't know what they are doing, revolving door of employees and DONs, horrible pay, paper charting, cameras everywhere except the bathroom

Mass exodus of staff and administrators.
Professional (Former Employee) –  Detroit/WarrenJune 29, 2013
Revolving door of new employees, none stay. Those that stay are not appreciated by management. Management out of touch with workers. To fill beds, this inpatient psychiatric facility has become nursing home central. Short staff is stretched even further to meet the needs of total care elderly with dementia. This place sets very few limits as to the kind of patients they accept. Staff-care very much about the patients and support each other.
Pros
Caring staff.
Cons
Low pay, poor benefits, no retirement, no lockers for personals and not enough chairs for anyone to sit and do paperwork.
