    The place is run by money grubbing incompetent power hungry executives.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Orefield, PA

    ProsWorking with the kids is great and rewarding. Support staff, clinicians, etc. were fantastic. Wonderful place to work if it weren't for the attitude and actions of upper management.

    ConsUpper management does not have any concern for their workers. Do the job and shut up...you will be okay. And no matter who screws up...it's always he little guys fault. Upper management gives you none of the credit and all of the blame.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet people working their who actually care about their employees instead of greedy arrogant leaders who think they know the answers, but truly couldn't punch their way out of a paper bag....in the minds of these folks....ready, shoot, aim.......knee jerk reactions and unfounded bs they blame on us.....oh and they just fired a ton of people because of hearsay and caused more harm than what they blamed the employees for.

    Disheartening, no matter how much or how hard you worked you only heard from management when you made a mistake

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee) Orefield, PA

    ProsExcellent co workers many extremely dedicated to the kids
    Helping kids

    ConsNo raises for multiple years
    No feeling that staff are appreciated
    Will ask you to work more OT than humanly possible and if your performance suffers you will hear about it.
    Reactionary policy
    you risk assault on the job

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop writing people up for calling out sick when its because you are burning them out and start praising your MVPs The same as you want them to do for the kids reward the good. Pay your managers enough to keep one for more than a year.

    Do yourself a favor, don't work here!

    Family Consultant (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThe salary and benefits are good. Somewhat flexible schedule. Meet some great people (clients and co-workers).

    ConsBasically they management act like they own the staff. They expect that you are available 24/7, including being on-call. Staff burn out very quickly, most people last approximately 6 months, and 2 months of that is spent in training. There is no respect from management, the morale is low, and they work staff into the ground until they quit. Staff are very unhappy here and everyone is trying to get out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly, I don't know what to say, although management does not respect the work the staff does, it is not completely their fault that this jobs sucks as much as it does. The DC foster care system is very complex, and this is an extremely tough field. Lower the requirements of the job, get company vehicles, don't duplicate work, really EXPLAIN the job during the interview, train staff more at kidspeace instead of relying on the useless CFSA training.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
