    I worked at Adams & Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping at-risk teens and young adults....Being able to watch them grow to be productive citizens.

    Cons

    This is the worst company to work for. They do not back up their employees. Its all about the numbers. They work their employees to the bones and pay little over minimum wages. You give then 100% and they want 150%. They are never satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with the employees. Get to know them personally. Don't take what the management says as the final word.

    Pros

    The people I managed were terrific. We had a great team of 8 managers and an admin assistant. We all worked well together and as a team.

    Cons

    Management and corporate office are non-supportive. They set you up to fail and treat employees badly, thus a high turn over. They go through managers, staff and directors bi-yearly. Terrible working conditions and low pay unless you are a center director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating people better, you might actually keep some of the good people. Pay more.

    Tough work environment as you are working with kids who don't come from the best environment -inner city, low income

    I worked at Adams & Associates full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seeing the students obtain a High school diploma and GED, along with a trade. That was my joy in coming to work every day knowing that I help one student.

    Cons

    Work hours to long, and too many meetings and trainings. Have to be in the click to fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management need to attend management training. Advocate for their staff and to be fair and honest.

    I have been working at Adams & Associates

    Pros

    Working with the students is a very rewarding experience.

    Cons

    Working with Middle/Upper management is not a rewarding experience. Favoritism within middle/upper management in terms of hiring, reviews, bonuses; lack of professionalism in communicating with staff; positively rewarding/acknowledging staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you were hired/contracted to do. Follow the CSSRs.

    I worked at Adams & Associates full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interacting with the students and lower/medium level staff.

    Cons

    NO TRAINING! They throw you out to the wolves and expect you to just get it. No communication, incompetent upper level staff, Lots of lying and throwing others under the bus. and from what I can tell from the other posts here, its was not only my center. Firings left and right without cause, it's no wonder there are always new employees. The turn over rates are horrible!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one can do their job properly, if they are not properly trained. Better training = better job performance!

    Working with the students. That's it

    Everything, unfairness, starting from HR right down to regular ft staff. certain rules apply to certain people. They treat you like crap and dont appreciate nothing you do for them especially managemeny. They act like they are better than you. I would never recomment this company to anyone!

    Follow your own guidlines you put out there. Star treating people fairly and you'll have positive results.

    Pros

    The medical benefits are competitive. There's opportunity to make a positive change in the lives of our youth. There is also great opportunity for networking.

    Cons

    The company makes it very clear through action that they do not care about their employees. The only reason there is always opportunity for advancement is because the turn over rates are so high. The company treats everyone like they are replaceable and that's why they keep having to replace them. Lack of communication is a consistent issue. The salaries and wages are extremely low. The company does not give any reason for employees to be loyal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make staff believe that they have value and they will add value to your company. You will never get the best out of someone by kicking them when they are down. If you help build people, they will help build you! Don't ignore the people beneath you when they are telling you the changes needed.
