A.Job.Worth.Having????
Social Worker (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMay 2, 2019
Typical work involves providing case management for 10-15 patients (average) on an inpatient unit. Redundant charting. 70% of time charting and managing (a failing) EMR system. Co-workers are your lifesavers. Free coffee. Management caters to MDs egos. Expect job responsibilities of social services team to involve secretarial work for docs. SICKENINGLY stupid mismanagement of patient care resulting in preventable injuries to patients and staff. Poor work life balance. Poor communication. Company prioritizes filling beds and making money over patient care.
Pros
Coworkers. Free coffee
Cons
everything else

Supportive Coworkers
Social Worker (Current Employee) –  West Allis, WIApril 21, 2019
Typical day:
-Staffing
-Meeting with patients individually
-Family sessions

Hardest part of the job for me is having enough time to document and have time with patients.

Behavior health
Reception/ Intake assistance (Former Employee) –  West Allis, WIMarch 30, 2019
Mental health has its pivotal moments of helping those who really want help. And that is most rewarding. Some however, are repeat inpatients, and they don't have enough strength to fight the environment they return to.
Pros
I have made some true friendships
Cons
Cannot predict or fight the violent

Toxic--this is an honest review, heed the warning!
Tech (Former Employee) –  West Allis, WIMarch 24, 2019
Inconsistent management and policies. No work-life balance. No mental health support for employees. Unsafe working environment--physically unsafe. No opportunities to advance. Below average market pay. Annual bonus dependent upon attending meetings, training, attendance and other arbitrary criteria as designated by management. Turnover nearing 100%. Facilities on probation with local agencies for numerous infractions. Staff continuously threatened with "state shutdown." Constant errors in pay and overtime accounts. PTO continually denied due to "lack of staffing". Staff continually told, "We will have full staffing next month." which doesn't occur due to people leaving for better opportunities, safer working environment. Mandatory dress code--scrubs/colors for any "non-professional" staff--and this is said to include nurses. Lack of respect for all employees. No appreciation, no acknowledgement. They will take and take and take and will not provide the basics in a working day, such as a response to an email or coming to the unit. Some staff get free meals, others don't. Some staff work one weekend a month, most work 2. If you are sick on a weekend you will have to work 2 weekends in a row. Nursing staff and front-line staff have no input into how things are run. Most staff do not get a lunch break due to lack of staffing. You will be promised the world at this hospital--don't believe it. 3rd Director of nursing in 3 years to be announced. Completely unstable. Rogers is busy expanding and rebranding, but has lost sight of the patients and employees in the process.   more... When I started at Rogers, I thought it was a career move. Instead, it's a toxic working environment with a dead-end. If you are pursing a career in behavioral health or nursing, consider other facilities in the area.  less
Pros
Eventually you will find a new job.
Cons
Dreading every day, wondering if it is the day you will be injured.

Great place
PATIENT CARE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  WisconsinMarch 11, 2019
Coworkers and management are great, some workers are questionable lenders but overall it's a great place with great people. You have your benefits and your PTO and everyone helps.everyone as a team. Like a big family. Patients are well cared for and given adequate treatment to their needs as doctors see fit for the patients to guide them.in the right direction.

Stressful job with minuscule pay
Clinic assistant (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLFebruary 28, 2019
This is an ok job for an entry level position. However, you are expected to do way too much for the pay which is barely enough to live on. Management is disorganized and it often feels as though no one really knows what they’re doing. The office culture is very clique-y which makes working awkward and uncomfortable at times. All of this would be somewhat tolerable if you were paid a living wage. The best part about this job is interacting with patients.
Pros
Experience, patient interaction
Cons
Extremely low pay, poor management, office cliques

The most stressful job
Residential Counselor (Current Employee) –  Oconomowoc, WIFebruary 22, 2019
This was the most stressful job I have ever held. They do not pay even close to enough for how much work has to be done. Expectations are extremely high and not even after the hardest, most draining days does management support the staff. The pay is abysmal and the job is incredibly exhausting.

Terrible
PCA Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  WisconsinFebruary 8, 2019
Treated certain staff horribly. Accused staff of doing things they didn’t do and didn’t allow them to stick up for themselves. When other employees did things to them nothing was said or done, we were told to just deal with it and that, that was just how that employee was.
Pros
Not sure

Nice Work Atmosphere
Residential Counselor (Current Employee) –  Oconomowoc, WIFebruary 4, 2019
Working at a residential unit in Rogers has been a positive experience. The staff is generally kind, honest, and relatable. Management and other higher-ups are willing to meet and discuss career advancement opportunities. The work pace is usually appropriate although it can vary some days.
Pros
Free meals, coffee, snacks, workplace culture is typically positive, work pace is usually appropriate but can vary depending on the day.
Cons
Pay could be higher, communication of scheduling and management could improve

Poor training and lots of employee drama
Clinical Staff (Current Employee) –  Oconomowoc, WIJanuary 23, 2019
I can say that working here has helped with my skills in mental health, but only because I wanted to learn and taught myself. You will receive horrible training and never feel fully confident in what you are doing. Lots of staff drama, cliques, and workplace politics. The pay is absolutely HORRIBLE! They expect you to work in a specialty area, give you a ton of responsibility, not train you and then pay you poorly.
Pros
Experience
Cons
High Drama, Poor Training, Poor Pay, Office Politics, High Stress

Toxic, Toxic Culture
Patient Care Associate (PCA) (Former Employee) –  West Allis, WIJanuary 18, 2019
If you are passionate about ending the negative stigma of mental health, DO NOT work at Rogers. The employees are very disrespectful to transgender patients, they lack knowledge on various mental health disorders. They call their patients "borderlines" and will tell employees to be rude to re-occurring patients because the reoccurring patients are "too comfortable." No team debrief would ever take place after very serious incidents. No corrective action takes place when safety on the unit is of concern. Management does not care. The only time that management minds the safety of the unit is when State visits.
Pros
benefits, helping mental health and AODA patients, you get as many hours as you need
Cons
terrible environment, uneducated staff, absent management.

Admissions Coordinator (Former Employee) –  West Allis, WIJanuary 10, 2019
This was a challenging job. I did leave this job to go back to school because I felt like this was not the best choice of employment for me. I thought nursing was the better career choice for me.

It’s all good , but may want to know these if wanting to advance...
Psychiatric Nurse (Current Employee) –  Oconomowoc, WIJanuary 8, 2019
Beware of promises to promote within. New hires off the street shouldn’t get positions that core staff have been in line for/promised just to fill a spot. There’s a disconnect between hiring DON, unit managers, and core staff. Orientation once on the floor is somewhat rushed. Scheduling tries very hard to accommodate, but will also cut deals and not keep balance with pool staff. Block scheduling can be difficult due to working “x” number of shifts in “x” number of days and wearing self thin without the care of management support.
Pros
Great values and mission statement. Great co-workers.
Cons
Scheduling and looking to promote within.

Understaffed and constantly unorganized
Professional Counselor (Current Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNJanuary 3, 2019
A decent place to work while getting your license hours done, but has high turnover due to people leaving as soon as they get their hours done.
The supervision is good, but can sometimes feel disrespectful of your intelligence/ability.

Management will make promises and will conveniently forget them.

Management also tends to be unorganized and engages in a lot of theater to look like they are doing stuff but really aren't.

No real room to advance beyond behavioral specialist.

They are constantly understaffed and pressure people into working extra in the name of "being part of a team", but refuse to get more staff when it is clear they need more.

Commonly felt unsupported and that the good work their staff do is quickly forgotten if management feels anything goes wrong (weather it actually did or not).
Pros
good supervision, decent benefits (better if you live in WI), rewarding work
Cons
unorganized management, understaffed, no real room to advance, and clique work environment

Clique like High school
Residential Counselor/ Behavioral Specialist (Former Employee) –  Oconomowoc, WIJanuary 1, 2019
Absolutely terrible place to work. They let the residents sexually harass you and do nothing about it. They run you ragged there. You could be someone that has 2 degrees in mental health and they will surpass you for a promotion and hire someone from outside that literally has no college education.
I have told people in my career today to not send their children or family members to OCD Residential if they want them to actually get better
Cons
Bad pay, no breaks, cliques

Helpful and rewarding, but stressful
Intake Specialist (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIDecember 30, 2018
The job is very helpful for graduate students going into counseling or psychology type work. It is very rewarding, but can be stressful. The pay and benefits are the lowest for the job in the Milwaukee area, but still a great job.
Pros
Rewarding, helpful
Cons
Lack of benefits, low pay

My worse nightmare
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  West Allis, WIDecember 1, 2018
No one in administration gets along. Very cut throat. They are continually resetting the vision as a reason to re organize. Not concerned at ALL about the patients. Employees are asked to do what I would considered unethical behavior/performance for the organization.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to mention.
