I worked here for 3 years
N/A (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAMarch 25, 2018
I worked here for 3 years and my last 18 months were the worst when a new director came. They quickly cleaned house and hired employees from their previous place of employment. Had I not been in the situation I was in, they would have let me go much sooner. Poor management, high turnover rates, inadequate staff, working employees to the ground. I wouldn't even recommend somebody needing psychiatric help to get treatment here.

Dangerous place to work
Nursing Staff (Former Employee) –  TexasMarch 19, 2018
Requires you to let go of any ethical or moral principals in order for they financial gain.
Retaliates against whistleblowers.
Management does not support you when you are trying to follow policy and procedures but writes you up when something is missed.

The patients were the perks
Therapist - Senior Citizen Mental Health Program (Former Employee) –  Edna, TXFebruary 13, 2018

Pros
Job Security
Cons
Very little support from Director

Dont work here
Undervalued employee (Former Employee) –  San Marcos, TXDecember 30, 2017
Do not work here if you care about the patients you're supposed to be serving. This corporation only cares about money. They have no regard for their staff or for the patients. You will always be understaffed. If you have 24 patients, you'll have three staff members and that's not enough. You and The patients will be left in unsafe situations. The patients here are severely neglected to the point that the state needs to shut this facility down which is something I'm working on. The patients aren't even seen by a psychiatrist.
Pros
The patients are great
Cons
Too many to list

Another company with clueless management being bought and sold at the expense of clients.
Direct Care Worker (Former Employee) –  TexasDecember 11, 2017
The company being bought and sold brings a cutthroat culture. Management is more concerned with saving their own jobs than serving clients or employees.

Save your energy and get q job somewhere else.
Pros
Helping people in need
Cons
Management has no concern for employees or clients

Not the job i thought...
Not telling (Current Employee) –  Wont tell ya that eitherNovember 22, 2017
Regret dearly coming to this company! Managers are cut throat micromanagers but do not fully know job functions. Created hostile working environment for some.. uses other employees to be their informants thats how they can do what they want. Which includes not clocking out for lunch and will take approximately 45 min to an hour because the system will automatically take 30mins for you. Unethical practices rules being changed on a whim... Just buying time until i find something else or fired!
Pros
Close to home flexible hours
Cons
Management and their crew

As a contract management company they were good to work for. However due to the job security issue there was always a balancing act with the hospital and the employer.

Challenging workplace with excellent learning opportunities
GERIATRIC SOP PROGRAM DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  MontanaNovember 4, 2017
Diamond strives to provide a work experience that focuses on patient care and healthcare compliance, it provides employees with excellent health & other benefits, and the corporate staff are good folks.

One does experience a "baptism by fire" circumstance initially in most positions with Diamond, until the annual October orientation.

The overall challenge with Diamond employment is working in a contract position far from the corporate office, and successfully negotiating that position in a rural environment. Working in a bifurcated environment while trying to make it seamless is a paramount struggle.
Pros
Knowledgeable corporate team members
Cons
PTO is a "use it or lose it" benefit, with 10 day maximum per quarter, so the holiday season can be rough

Conservative organization with huge upside potential
Director of Business Operations (Current Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAOctober 30, 2017
The organization is a mix of management contracts and freestanding behavioral health facilities. The service lines that I support are well respected and provide vital services as community partners. The operations have year over year seen fundamental change as the environment shifts toward value based care. This organizations keys on financial performance indicators and struggles to find the balance on improving quality metrics. Clinical outcomes are generally good but patient satisfaction scores are average at best. Never the less, it is satisfying to is seeing those admitted with severe behavioral problems stabilized during their treatment and hopeful for higher quality of life as they are stepped out of our levels of care.
Pros
The works helps those that need it most.
Cons
A clear divide between line staff and corporate managment

Bad place to work
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  San Marcos, TXAugust 29, 2017
Do not work here. Very poor management. Director of nurses is the worst ever, she never involves herself in managing nurses or ever leaves her office. Therefore, there is no accountability to anything. Disorder and chaos rules here. Patients are treated poorly as well unfortunately. There is really no teamwork, no one in charge. Families have constant complaints and no one seems to care. Most disorganized nursing station ever.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Alot

Great staff who really cares about their patients
Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) –  Clinton, MDJuly 20, 2017
The Behavioral Health field is an under served discipline within the medical field so it is refreshing to find an organization who not only cares for the mentally challenge but individuals who do so with empathy and compassion.

My biggest criticism is that the management team focuses more attention on the status of the employee as opposed to the quality of that individual as well as the quality of the overall body of work that individual provides our patients. I find it ironic that the team charged with leading this amazing team does not display any of these character traits.

The hardest thing about the job is knowing that some of the patients will be returning to us soon as there is no support for them in the communities that they live and work in.

I have learned that it is as important to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

The most enjoyable part of the job for me is knowing that we have made a positive impact on our patients, our communities and each other.
Pros
Positive Impact we make in each other's lives
Cons
Management team that is not in touch with it's most valuable assets, it's employees
