Company Culture

Communication between upper management, department heads, and youth caregivers is almost non-existent. Company culture seems to be about getting dollars in pockets rather than doing what's best for the children they "serve."

Teamwork

Lots of incompetent, often borderline abusive, lazy staff. If good employees actually get hired, they leave quickly because they get burned out fast.

Overall compensation for your work

Pays better than most all other companies in the area (which is the only reason most people stick around) but it's still not enough for the stuff you have to deal with.

Work-Life Balance

Team leads and supervisors constantly call on your days off because they are always so understaffed. Staying late past the end of your shift is pretty much a guarantee.

Company Image

I've had several police officers (who have to come to campus almost daily) bad mouth the company and the way things are done. Also, several agencies and a couple of judges refused to work with a particular director because of her terrible attitude and the nasty way she treats people.

Job Security

You would probably have to actually harm a child very seriously in order to get fired. They don't get rid of anyone because they have so few to begin with!

Challenging Work

Very challenging but only because you are not given the proper tools to do your job effectively. The kids run the campus and staff are just glorified babysitters. Company policies tie your hands and prevent any real help to be given or change to be made.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is a diverse population of both kids and staff but I would NOT call it an inclusive environment.Every department managed has their own clique and if they don't need a good reason not to like you.

What I like about the company

PTO accrues quickly. 2 weeks per year.

What I dislike about the company

Everything else.
