Pros: get to work with the public; you’re outside, good exercise
Cons: its seasonal
My position at the Milwaukee County Marina is a seasonal position that I enjoyed while there. I worked the late shift with two to three other employees each night. The coworkers I worked with were a cohesive group. Management was lenient with individuals requesting schedule alterations.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Milwaukee County Behavioral Health – August 24, 2012
Pros: i worked with some wonderful rns[ who were also frustrated with the system]
Cons: unfortunately tax payers are supporting a corrupt unsafe hospital!
Racist against whites. Management allows the nursing assistants to run the place. Registered Nurses have no control over what the nursing assistants do or not do. Patient's death could have been prevented. Good nursing care, leadership and input is frowned upon. There is an underlining corrupt code of conduct that prevails which is supported by management. – more... There is also age discrimination. Younger nurses coming in with no experience whatsoever are asked to teach and do in services while those who come in with experience and are over 45 are not asked to help out at all. Younger nurses are treated with more respect by management then the newer seasoned nurses. MANAGEMENT NEEDS TO GO!! – less

Meet with and assess suicidal patient in the Emergency Room. Writeup to include all important, relevant information. Present to psychiatrist on site in the ER. Proceed to respond to a crisis call from the police. Meet the police at a person's home and assess and recommend action by police and or recommend services needed. Later worked on the Crisis – more... Line. Learned from situations which were always different. Learned from co-workers and psychiatrists, their thoughts about the presenting situation. Management typically provides autonomy. Co-workers well known and well liked by each other. Hardest part of job is situations where disagreement exists within a team of two or more about a handling of a situation. Enjoy the autonomy and responsible actions; enjoy the interaction with most patients. Enjoy making decisions. – less
