Support from management
No support from supervisors
Some actually work, most just write you up
Freedom to work independently
multiple directions from different management departments
No advancements nor encouragement or raises
Overall compensation for your work
No raises for staff in 6 years, even a reduction in pay across all staff. This year the Director was given permission to give raises, he decided to give bigger raises to select management and administration employees, while not a single education nor direct care staff received one.
Office / Work Environment
Rarely get time off, management gets perks the workers get nothing
Upper management does not understand behavior management nor support the employees working directly with the children
No balance, you just make demands and you either comply or you will be written up or fired
They have a 90% turn over of staffing (per HR)
No. We have had several staff injured on the job by clients and management refused to provide any accomendations.
No. There are multiple violations. Accidents are frequent.
The work with the children is inspiring and challenging despite the impediments place on staff by management
Inclusive / Diverse
If you are family, yes
Suggestions for improvement
- Higher department heads that actually understand the function of the facility which is to work with abused and at-risk children. By not supporting the direct care staff, they lose really good people and for some reason keep staff that has no business working with children. The screaming at children that takes place at T-5 by staff is mind boggling.
What I like about the company
Working with the clients.
What I dislike about the company
No support, no opportunity to offer ideas, the place is simply dysfunctional, management does not understand the mission of Childhelp.
