Company Culture

I love the people I work with, and there is a true sense of family and community

Challenging Work

I work with youths with behavior problems or kids that are on probation. I teach them social skills through positive and negative consequences.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Providing more help for kids after they leave and potentially asking employees how they would want to help the kids with that

What I like about the company

I love everything about my company

What I dislike about the company

none, I share a lot of the same values as my company

What I like about the company

My first supervisor had a lot of experience and taught me so much; I considered her a mentor because of her passion and motivation to keep families and children safe

What I dislike about the company

Management/ admin side- I suppose there was some favoritism and people getting positions that others were more qualified to get. There was also office gossip and unnecessary drama - i usually just kept to myself and did my job.

The following perks were offered to me

Suggestions for improvement

  • Providing better support and understanding and help with regards to allowing people to be off when they are scheduled to be off so they can recharge

What I like about the company

There is a true desire to help youth and see them improve and that is and can be very rewarding.

What I dislike about the company

There needs to be greater effort not just lip-service to providing a better work life balance. Too many good people burn out and leave because they are overworked and under appreciated.
