Demanding, pressure, focus on census, stressful
Manager (Former Employee) – Virginia – April 19, 2017
A lot of great hard working, devoted, committed staff, the managers and upper leadership are deceptive, cunning, manipulative and hard to know who to trust. The hardest part of job is having support from management. The corporate ladder is very competitive and if the management see flaws in you, they set you up to fail so that they don't fall. They expect a lot but staff morale is very low, difficult to get management to listen and 'have your back." A lot of pressure on numbers and they seem to forget the comrade and relationships that need to be established before that happens. Happy, content staff produce good quality care, but that seems to be lacking in the mental health service lines. A very hard line to work in and it would prove beneficial to take this into consideration. A lot of turn over for this reason.
