Pros: great working environment, most of the staff were great.
Cons: if you're injured there (as an employee) you'll be treated like trash until you're forced to quit.
I worked on the Psych unit, but actually loved it most of the time. There were "administrative changes" that made the job unbearable, but prior to that, it was great and wouldn't have given it many negative reviews. Some of the nurses were extremely rude and not just towards staff, but that happens at any job.
Management; nice at first, but you get the quick impression it's just best to stay out of their site.
Coworkers; mostly great, there were far more coworkers that were great than those that were not, but that happens anywhere.
Stress was the hardest part, but that's not the reason I quit. – more... DO NOT get injured on the job there or you will be treated like complete trash by nearly everyone in human resources. Literally the last day as I was scheduled to return to work, I was given a modest settlement offer and required to resign because I was "too high of a risk" for re--injury. The way I was treated throughout the recovery process, I'd never treat my worst enemy like...and they NEVER paid my agreed upon Short-Term Disability.
I enjoyed the atmosphere most of the time, I never worked with "aggressive" patients. They were quickly transferred, which is a huge perk of the job. No one wants to restrain people. That happened once in over the two years I worked there and it was a completely unpredictable situation. I liked what I learned from that job, the pay was reasonable, and most of the staff were cool. – less
