Reviews

Company Culture

Lots of movement within units, culture was constantly switching

Internal Communication

Completely based on your RN in charge

Overall compensation for your work

I don't think mental health techs are paid enough.

Office / Work Environment

The unit was dark

Environmental Friendliness

I wish there was recycling but there was none. All styrofoam everthing.

Challenging Work

Depends on the day, but it's never easy working with at risk youth

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would recommend more education about the actual therapy for my coworkers and mental health techs. I think that there needs to be more thorough training.

What I like about the company

I was given a lot of freedom to work on communications with patients. I was allowed to design my own groups. This was good for someone like me with a psych education. It was nice to connect with others my age about mental health.

What I dislike about the company

I wish that there was a little more transparency with management. My full-time coworkers were always mad about something related to the management.

  • There isn't anything I can specifically think of at this time.

What I like about the company

People are nice, it has become more diverse over the years. The hospital is taking steps to increase wages for employees. I have been there for 14 years.

What I dislike about the company

Unless your are a clinician there isn't much opportunity for higher paying positions.

  • Better pay to match Boston salaries.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the people i worked with and the experience i received. It helped me get my ideal position with a new company.

What I dislike about the company

The overall pay for any level of employee is subpar compared to any other Partners run institution. Unfortunately they like to play the "its an honor to work here so we can pay you nothing because you want our name on your resume or CV".

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make wages livable and especially commensurate with on-the-job experience, don't undercut the experienced staff by paying new people barely less than what you make. It's insulting. Also, when forcing policy change on the units, actually consult staff because some of the things that have been passed down were clearly written by someone with zero direct clinical care experience

What I like about the company

Honestly, there are too many to pick one or two. I'll just say, overall, I've had a lot of experiences, both good and bad, that have made me a stronger, better, more compassionate and understanding person. Even though the work is hard sometimes and very stressful, I genuinely feel I'm making a difference almost every day. My boss and co-workers are great too. If anything, it's higher up in corporate that I have a problem with. They don't pay the entry level workers, who are the backbone of the institution, a fair wage, in general and especially for what we have to do and deal with. They also offer very little in terms of upward progress or incentive for self improvement

What I dislike about the company

As I said, the pay and stifling of upward growth.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase the pay and don't shaft the few experienced people you have left. Paying someone who just started 50 cents less than you when you have six years of experience is insulting

What I like about the company

Too many to mention. Over all, a sum of experiences that made me a far better person than when I started

What I dislike about the company

The pay. The tuition reimbursement and lack of easy upward momentum

Suggestions for improvement

  • Compensation could be more competitive. Additionally, I think an overall shift in culture to be more adaptable to the ever-changing healthcare regulatory market is necessary going forward if the hospital is to maintain it's top rankings.

What I like about the company

Overall, it is a privilege to work with some of the top experts in the field, and the level of understanding of research and quality is much higher and both are more respected here than at many other facilities.

What I dislike about the company

Clinical leadership can be a little stubborn and hard to work with when change is needed. They certainly listen to concerns, but as experts in their field, it is often an uphill battle to enact real change, even when mandated by outside agencies/governments.

  • Provement’s would be making changes to payroll employees give a lot and do a lot in their job and they deserve better pay

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think that patients being able to use their own instruments on an inpatient unit should be allowed due to therapetic reasoning.

What I like about the company

I have had the chance to work with some amazing and intelligent individuals who have helped me learn and grow in this career. My job is something I am proud of everyday and I love being able to help others even if I am just someone to listen. School teaches you about psychology but actually seeing and experiencing this career from a first hand basis is completly different and incredible.

What I dislike about the company

There are a lot of old buildings that could use fixing up and the pay could be increased.
