Mental Health Technician (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAOctober 2, 2017
Friends Hospital Management do not care about the employees. The employees work long hours for friends hospital and no way does the ceo or management ask the employees what can they do to make the employee jobs better.

Avoid
Therapy Intern (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 19, 2017
Workplace culture is MISERABLE.

Most employees are completely burnt out and in need of some serious self-care. Benefits/vacation/days-off time takes years to build in one of the most STRESSFUL fields/areas you can work in (the irony).

Management is HORRID. The turnover of director positions happens at least once-twice a year because no one can stand those positions before running out of the door. So prepare to have continuously changing coworkers, supervisors and directors (because in one year, I had SEVERAL of each).

There is a lot of click-y/catty behavior from coworkers. I've blatantly been lied about to management who chose to believe lies rather than the available proof due to her friendship with my coworker. The definition of childish, high school behavior. If I wanted to feel like I was in High school again, I would've taken up a job in one.

I really enjoyed working with the patients & in the workplace setting BUT it's the employed who make the job miserable. A lot of cleaning of house needs to be done in several departments before this becomes a bearable work environment. But until then, avoid. Apply elsewhere.
Pros
Employee Cafeteria food was great, Great patient-to-professional experience, Good training
Cons
Staff, staff, management

Too many changes to staff and management.
Mental Health Technician (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 10, 2017
You never know what you are walking into or if you have a job when coming in. The management team haws no respect for the staff and will fire you in a heart beat after over working and under paying you. The overtime is easy if you are liked and willing to suck up to management.
Pros
Overtime and close to home
Cons
No leaderships and too many changes.

Work Environment
Crisis Care Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJanuary 20, 2017
This company has been through dramatic management and culture change over the past year. Owned by the same organization but new management from top to bottom over this hospital has made this a very unsafe work environment.
Previously I was proud of my employer and would recommend it even though there were some differences in opinions. Some good individuals are still around.
Pros
Hours are always available
Cons
current work environment, pay, job security, management

Restrictive Career Growth
tech (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 11, 2016
Inability to grow within your career. Management declines to provide staff with merit praising, especially when going far and beyond. Some staff without degree or sufficient experience in mental health giving positions with better pay and this positions require degrees.
