Working at Buckelew was disappointing. For an organization that is mostly ran by therapists and mental health professionals there is alot of behavior that causes anxiety, stress and high turn over in positions. In short the department I worked in was a very toxic work environment. The Manager was disorganized, constantly losing paperwork and information, and was my superior, but didn't have a degree in mental health. I witnessed constant harassment, lack of training and people quitting left and right. They bait you with false quotes of salary, opportunities for growth and support... and instead deliver in stress, lack of support and training, hostility towards employees and low salary.
There are many dedicated and genuine people working for the company, but they are most often dismissed and overworked. Good people quit all the time, at Buckelew, unfortunately. Hopefully, the good people there will make the changes necessary to keep the program current and relevant.
working in the field i enjoy
Hostile work environment, poor salary, lack of training, lack of support, lack of opportunity
