Great Place to Work
Hospitalist Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 7, 2017
Challenging yet rewarding to work with children with autism.....Not for everyone. UHS is a leader in healthcare in the US, As Laurel Heights teammate, you may transfer to another UHS facility nationwide
I would encourage anyone to work there.

Residential Instructor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 15, 2016
NEVER WORK HERE!!!! Always short staffed, denying PTO, children don't receive the care they need. It's a very nasty place!
Pros
The staff genuinely care but they don't have the resources or support to completely do their jobs.

I recommend that if you need a job then any one will do. If you have bills, it is what it is. This job will help you pay your bills and you can get plenty of over time.
Pros
Free meals
Cons
You are expendable

DIRECT SUPPORT PROFESSIONAL (PRN) (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 4, 2015
Individuals are priority, as that should be but staff is under heard and understaffed. Not much team-players even though its to your advantage to do so to keep the individuals taken care of properly.

MENTAL HEALTH ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 23, 2012
My typical day was assessing the youth in a mental, emotional & behavioral setting. I learned that this job is not meant for everybody & you really have to have a hear to work with disturbed children. My co-workers were okay as long as you didn't make them mad. The hardest part of this job is keeping your cool when a child attacks you & your not getting any assistance from your unit co-workers.
Pros
helping children that wanted to be helped, pretty good pay, set schedule
Cons
not open door policy when it came to your management staff, not having the staff safety as a point of interest, a lot of hear say on the unit
