    I worked at Adelphoi Village

    Pros

    Faced paced with very little routine. Days go by quick. Benefits and vacation time are unmatched. Lot of people to meet and interact with. Overtime is always available when needed and there is room to move within the company.

    Cons

    high stress environment. There is a high turnover rate and competent staff are hard to come by due to the low entry level pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    raise entry level salaries to attract better interest

    I worked at Adelphoi Village

    Pros

    Flexibility to move upward within the company in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Lack of structure, poorly managed, job expectations unclear, high-stress environment, dishonesty and disrespect from coworkers and higher level staff, and too much use of personal vehicle to transport youth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More structure within the units, more clarity of job expectations with staff, and higher salary.

    I have been working at Adelphoi Village full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Clocking out at the end of the day.

    Cons

    I work for Adelphoi Village. The immediate supervisor snaps her fingers at her employees and is verbally abusive. She has done her best to make a high stress job almost unbearable. The paperwork and caseloads are not managable and are expected to be maintained within a 40 hour work week. I was told that I would be paid for one hour overtime and when I had turned in my hours and received my paycheck, the hours were removed without my knowledge and without informing me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your line staff!

    I worked at Adelphoi Village full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good place to get initial trainings and experience. Ability to interact with managers and staff.

    Cons

    The current leadership focuses only on the bottom line. The Mission of Adelphoi Village has been forgotten. They financially award those that don't ask questions while the staff that deal with the difficult clients are viewed as collateral damage. Benefits continue to be cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return the focus back on the Mission. Focus on the well being of the staff

    I have been working at Adelphoi Village

    Pros

    Adelphoi Village has an ok benefit package.

    Cons

    Adelphoi Village used to really care about the employee and the employees family, over the years they are moving away from that and you are just another number. As an enviroment that is hard and stressful I feel it is a shame they are getting away from this.

    I worked at Adelphoi Village

    Pros

    You get a chance to do very important work with teens. You make lasting friendships with other employees, education is very good.

    Cons

    The management staff were all good friends and this at times interfered with their being attuned to the needs of the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your senior staff is not too "inbred"

    Pros

    1~Sincere management, has the employees best interest at heart.
    2~Rewarding.
    3~Challenging.
    4~Supportive personnel.
    5~Opportunity to change a child's life.

    Cons

    1~Salary . . . Non-profit organization not capable of paying wages comparable to public school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Correcting the name spelling of Dr. Kucinski . . . should be Blair. :-)

    I strongly believe that the upper management is doing their absolute best to improve all areas of Adelphoi Village. I think that our management is under rated by those employees that don't take the time to follow information that has been provided. I know that several of my staff complain about our current financial situation, however, they don't take the time to understand the true financial aspects of what is exactly going on. Perhaps more information provided to the employees on a regular basis would help them to comprehend Adelphoi's financials?
