It is a great place to work if you are interested in learning about the many different psychiatric populations. You get an invaluable experience with the amount of acute patients you will deal with.

excellent staff
RN, Adolescent Unit, Dual Diagnosis (Former Employee) –  Boston, MANovember 11, 2017
Most enjoyable part of the job was the staff and patients. Most of the staff who remained long term at this facility stayed because of attachment to other staff and caring about the population that was served.

Good work environment
Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) –  Jamaica Plain, MAOctober 21, 2017
The work was alrite. The work environment was relaxed. The main issues are pay which is less than what other companies in the same field pay, and not a lot of overtime.

they are always in the news
Psychiatric Nurse (Former Employee) –  Jamaica Plain, MASeptember 6, 2017
There is lack of accountability on management. I left because I feared for my license. The work place can be fun and lots of great people work their but too much liability falls on the nurse with circumstances beyond their control ie; a dangerous pt. or census.

lack of patient care, understaffed, underpaid, unappreciated
Mental Health Associate (Current Employee) –  Jamaica Plain, MAAugust 18, 2017
Arbour only cares about how much money they can make. As an employee working at the Arbour, I can say with confidence that we are underpaid and unappreciated. Mental Health Associates are the first line of defense when patients get extremely violent because Arbour does not want to spend money to hire proper security, like other hospitals. Employees have to pick up the slack due to being understaffed, and while the employees are taking on the extra work, causing them to leave work late, and miss their breaks, management is too concerned with saving money and reprimanding workers for overtime, and/ or canceling shifts all because they want to save money (which probably gets divided up into bonuses for the higher ups at the end of the year). If you genuinely care about patient care, this isn't the place for you-again, I must stress, Arbour only cares about their money. Not their employees, and certainly not their patients
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
short breaks, health care

Manager (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAApril 24, 2017
Not a bad place to work. Management can be better with more training. There are some wonderful people working at the company.
Need to let go of a few bad eggs in the company.

Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee) –  Jamaica Plain, MAApril 15, 2017
They suck. Poor and unsafe working conditions. And will do any and everything under the sun to cover their tail. If you find yourself in a position where you aren't feeling safe report it immediately.
Pros
Some of the people are great to work with.

Mental Health Associate (Current Employee) –  Jamaica Plain, MAJanuary 26, 2015
I have worked here for the better part of 3 years. My coworkers are some are the best people you'll ever meet but there are others who are either too burnt out by terrible pay and stifling management, or whom simply not nice to begin with and have a terrible bedside manner with patients (which, believe me, will impact your shift in some negative way). These people need to find a new profession. Management has gone downhill since I started and you can see it in the amount of orientees who quit within their first month. We have so few resources (pens are a hot commodity) and are consistently understaffed (especially on the kids unit
Pros
Some cool staff
Cons
Short breaks, disgustingly low pay

For the most part the atmosphere was stress-free. Most co-workers were friendly towards each other. Management provided for flexible hours as well as days of the week worked.
Pros
My position allowed me to work four days a week and remotely when needed.
Cons
30 minute lunch breaks.
