Friends Hospital is a really good place to work. The employees here are friendly and they are hard workers. There is a family type of environment. This facility really focus on patient care and does everything possible to ensure a great stay. The environment is very clean and safe. The grounds of the hospital is beautifully kept.

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.

Horrible Company - They dont care about their Employees- Management is very Corrupt

This is a horrible place to work, management is very corrupt and they do not care about their employees. Take my advice do not work here, you will regret it. They treat the staff poorly and HR does not protect the employees and allow management to mistreat employees.
Pros
Nothing good to say about this place!!!
Cons
The worst place to work, they will abuse and mistreat you!

A good place to ply your trade as a nurse because the workers are good and supportive. As a teaching psychiatric hospital, the opportunity for on spot and availble answeres to most question. Manager is not friendly and supportive to worker.

I would not recommend you work at Friends
RN (Current Employee)June 23, 2011
Friends is a place that is trying to work not work well. They continuously work short staffed and management does nothing to improve the situation. Management exhibits poor communication with staff and thing often are unknown til the last minute or way after they should have been known. Friends management is more interested in punitive action then education of their employee. Friends is a for profit organization and you can feel that the interest lies with the shareholder not the patient or their staff.

Great people working here, however the many transitons of ownership make things challenging
Assessment Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 31, 2013
There are great people working here that want to provide the best for the patients. Mid-level management is very receptive to the employees and it is truly a place where everyone is on a first name basis with everyone- from the housekeepers to the CEO. However the numerous changes in ownership over the years and the previous long-term financial shortcomings have created some problems that will take a long time to iron out. Like all problems that were long in creation, undoing the damage takes time as well.

Great place to work
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 25, 2014
Clock in and head straight to your assign unit where you will have a review of the patients from one of your co-worker from the prior shift. Then you will proceed to whatever it is you are schedule to do at that time.
