Staff member (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MN – October 16, 2013
Pros: most co workers are great
Cons: too many to list
Management- is a joke. The director cares more about herself and bringing in money, then she does about clients or her staff. She has been seen yelling at staff members and also ignoring client care.
Living areas- the clients rooms are disgusting. Staff likes to blame this on clients, but its the facility. Rooms have bugs. There is mice that live in – more... the eating areas and also client rooms. Ceiling is falling down in common areas. When it rains, prepare for water coming in from the ceiling.
Client care- be prepared to be talked down to, treated like a child, and be kept in treatment beyond the amount of time you need. If there is empty beds, counselors are told they cannot graduate a client so they can keep beds filled. Clients are also referred within company even if their needs are better served at another facility.
Staff- the staff can be seen bickering about each other. Techs sitting in their office playing on their cell phones. Lack of nursing. High staff turnover. Tech manager degrading clients and talking down to them. Nurse manager more concerned with herself and her looks, then client care and her nurse turn over.
Most nurses do not stay for more than 1 month due to the way they are treated. Counselor stay is typically 3-6 months. Supervisor stay is 4 months. Tech stay is typically 3-5 months.
There is no room for advancement. Be prepared for empty promises. There is no raises. Be prepared to not have days off that you have earned. – less
