    Je travaille chez Brookhaven Retreat à plein temps

    Avantages

    I was very nervous because of the negative reviews on here, but that has not been my experience at all. The executive team (program director, ceo,and the owner) are constantly working to make the staff and the program better. They do take clients' suggestions seriously and try to accommodate any special needs. As an employee, I feel valued by my superiors. I do feel like I can address any problems with them.

    Inconvénients

    Our clients have complex mental health issues. If you can't handle working with patients like that, you shouldn't apply here. Also, with residential programs you don't have the downtime like you would with an outpatient facility. If neither of these things bother you, you would fit in great.

    Avantages

    I have worked with the clients at Brookhaven Retreat as a specialty referral physician. I have always found the staff to be professional, knowledgeable, kind and caring towards the clients. The clients are amazing women who have faced the toughest life challenges, but choose to try to persevere. They are always complimentary of the care they are receiving by the Brookhaven Staff.

    Inconvénients

    None that I am aware of.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to provide a nurturing environment for the clients and staff.

    Inconvénients

    Owner a terror on wheels - poor care for clients

    Conseils à la direction

    Fire Jacqueline Dawes, find a new owner and get management to communicate respectfully with employees and care for clients honestly and effectively.
    I was shocked at how they told clients one thing about the program and how poorly they were able to deliver what they promised. Communication with Jacqueline Dawes was frightening and everyone walked on egg shells. This women cares little about the clients there and more about her power over all clients and employees.

    Avantages

    A beautiful place to work, with a tranquil environment and friendly staff.

    The owner, Jacqueline, is a self-made woman whose grit and dedication are inspirational. She invests significantly in the development of her employees. Her attention to helping employees be their best selves helped me grow significantly in my career and as a woman. Yes, growth can be uncomfortable and frightening - as are most things that propel us into the unknown - but my experience working there was transformative.

    If you are looking for a competitive salary, a meaningful job, and to be pushed to develop in your career, I recommend working here!

    Inconvénients

    Jacqueline shows up with her whole heart in her business every day, and expects staff to do the same. These expectations and the nature of a treatment facility are challenging for some employees, leading to some staff turnover, which can be disheartening at times, though understandable.

    Conseils à la direction

    It has been a while since I have worked at BHR, so I cannot speak to how things are going there now. I suppose my only "advice" is to keep doing what you are doing, for it is important work.

    Avantages

    The pay, that's it. But money cannot buy you happiness and I guarantee you will not be happy.

    Inconvénients

    While at this job I was screamed at by the owner, demeaned, verbally abused, I witnessed the owner lie to the clients, lie to the staff, and manipulate the therapists to compete for "length of stay." The therapists are not judged by their effectiveness, but judged on how long they can keep a client at the facility. It doesn't matter if they're effective, they just have to bring money in. I have witnessed and received complaints regarding abuse from a particular therapist to clients.
    I watched he owner manipulate client families by saying their daughter/wife was going to die if they didn't keep them there longer.
    I had the owners religious doctrine pushed on me, I felt pressured to attend a conference at the owners church gathering, I declined and shortly after my own job was questioned and "on the line."
    I witnessed the owner refer to breast milk as a "biohazard" that "could not be kept in a refrigerator with people's food."

    Run. I should have headed the advice of others and never taken the job. I didn't, and my whole family paid the price.

    You can't get even better pay at other places, you just have to look hard and don't settle. This place is NOT worth even applying.

    Conseils à la direction

    Sell. Pay off the debt you owe and leave people alone. You can't fill the void you have in your heart by trying to help others, help yourself and leave everyone else alone.

    Avantages

    It is difficult to come up with a 20 word minimum pro for Brookhaven Retreat. Only pro I can think of is the serene surrounding.

    Inconvénients

    I worked here for 5years. I came back from maternity leave and the executive director refused to let me take break to pump and when she gave me "permission" I had to do it in the bathroom. I then put in my thirty days notice and she was not a happy camper. Thankfully, my family and I moved back to my home state and I now work for an awesome place.

    Conseils à la direction

    Get some professional help yourself.

    Avantages

    Wonderful experience working with both staff and clients. Gained valuable insight into the operation of a specialized treatment facility. Very rewarding to see the impact of the program in the lives of the clients. Owner is passionate about maintaining excellence in every area.

    Inconvénients

    Staff turnover. This is a specialized treatment facility and is challenging, therefore it is not for everyone. Employees should carefully considered if they are a good fit for working in mental health. This could impact the turnover rate substantially.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to place the highest priority on client care. Encourage staff engagement with the facility. Foster healthy interaction between management and other staff.

    Avantages

    Brookhaven has a multitude of learning opportunities to continue growing as an individual and in the field. The clients are amazing women that are in considerable pain or ill. It is beautiful to see the changes in people as they grow and learn their self-worth. The clients are the top priority and are treated with respect, which in my experience is rare. The majority of the staff truly believe in the program and what Brookhaven is trying to help these women achieve. I have little faith with inpatient facilities because of how they treat clients and Brookhaven has restored hope in the idea of respectful and caring facilities can be available to those who need them. I love working with my ladies and they challenge me to be the best therapist I can be.

    Inconvénients

    The cons to Brookhaven is that people want to work there because of the pay and have no idea what the job entails. I have seen staff (No longer there) that ignore the clients and sit on their phones or talk to one another. They do not engage the clients and get to know them. Then when they get let go for not meeting the standard of care and high expectations their true level of nastiness comes out at Brookhaven and the owner. There are not good fits with any organization, so just move on and find one that is instead of contaminating the environment. I am tired of seeing reviews from people that rook a job for a paycheck and not because they care. Every company has issues to improve on, at least Brookhaven administration is willing to hear you and work on them.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue supporting staff and helping them grow. Continue weeding out the staff that is negative and does not want to be there because they are contaminating the lovely ladies we are trying to help!!!!!

    Avantages

    I have been working for Brookhaven Retreat for three years. I love Brookhaven and have become quite attached to it. When I first applied and explored the website, I was so impressed by the both the beauty of the facility and the air of professionalism and attention to detail in the site. When I saw Brookhaven in person, I wasn't disappointed. It truly is a beautiful place. Our owner has invested so mush into it, creating a place of healing for broken woman. And first impressions aside, that it what I have seen Brookhaven be for so many woman--a place of healing. The therapeutic program here is so unique and tailored just for woman. I have never seen a program like the one here, and often wish I could go through it myself! From the individual projects, the therapeutic groups, the level system, and on and on--it has been thoughtfully created to take woman from lost and broken to whole and well. The great thing is, our owner wants us to experience our own growth, and has provided countless continuing education trainings for us in order to advance our professional knowledge and experience--a huge strength of this company. I also have really valued the staff here at Brookhaven. Of course, there may always be a difference of opinion or stressors in the workplace from time-to-time, however, for the most part I have found my co-workers to be helpful and supportive with a sense of camaraderie, which is so needed in the challenging field of mental health. And finally, I have respect for Jacqueline's commitment to this place of recovery and to the woman she welcomes here. She is fearless and will fight for what she believes in. She's poured herself into this company, and that is a passion people can follow.

    Inconvénients

    During my time at Brookhaven Retreat, I have seen communities of clients come and go, and I have seen communities of staff come and go. Some might criticizes the turnover at this facility, but I believe that those who want to be here will stay, and those who are not will move on and that is what it is. Your experience is what you make it. The power to be happy and content is in your own mind. Brookhaven may not be the right fit for everyone, and that's fine. Personally, I like my job and I like this company and I am grateful for the opportunity to work here. I could have left long ago, but I see the good here. I see woman go from depressed, hopeless, unmanageable to incredible, self-empowered, emotionally regulated, joyful, strong woman. That isn't fake. That is real and powerful and amazing. I believe in this program and I believe in Brookhaven. I have seen some of the negative previous reviews, and I must say, Jacqueline has never done me wrong--she has always been good to me. We all have our strengths and we have our weaknesses--every one of us. She has not held mine against me, and I do not believe in seeing the worst in others either. I think it is unfortunate that so many have chosen a negative perspective, but it is not my perspective or experience. I am grateful to be employed at Brookhaven Retreat.

    Conseils à la direction

    Just to continue offering support and encouragement to staff. People want to know that their concerns are being addressed, that their voice is heard, and that their work is appreciated, and mostly, that they are doing a good job.
