Good experience, loved what I did, horrible administration and communication within the company

Child Care Counselor II (Former Employee)
Orefield, PA

I worked at KidsPeace part-time for more than a year

ProsGive you purpose, great for psych/social work majors, good experience, exposes you to many things, interact with a wide variety of people, hands-on experience, receive a lot of training

ConsDifficult situations, requires much patience, can be a very intense workplace, high turnover rate, administration is very flawed, horrible communication within the company, staff are not treated well by some higher-ups.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to be more organized and communicate more, treat staff more objectively, treat staff with more respect.

The company only cares about the money they make not how they are screwing the employees.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Orefield, PA

I have been working at KidsPeace

ProsYou get to feel like you are making a difference in the kids life

ConsHorrible pay for the people who work with the kids while the higher ups get the money and bonuses. Five times the work that can't even be done in 8 hrs.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of making sure you and your families can continue on living the grand lifestyle pay attention to the lower workers .Some lost alot of pay just to help you change over to a Clinical system that isn't working.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A good place to work in the child welfare arena

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at KidsPeace

ProsThis company has been around for over 130 years and has a solid reputation for being one of the best in helping kids in crisis. It's gratifying to know that you're making a difference in the lives of children and families.

ConsChild Welfare is a tough business to be in these days, with many changes and challenges happening on the Federal, State,and Local levels. KidsPeace hasn't escaped the impacts
