    Pros

    Excellent management. Great benefits and work/life balance. Lots of opportunity to take on new projects. Enjoyed working for the cause.

    Cons

    Need more opportunities for professional development. No advancement opportunities unless someone leaves.

    Advice to Management

    The pay is on the lower end, consider evaluating what the market is paying. Offer employees more opportunities to grow professional skills through trainings and conferences.

    Pros

    The Heath benefits can't be matched. Basically no additional costs outside of your premium if you go to a boystown clinic/hospital.

    Cons

    Everything else. You will be demoralized my management and children. You will be physically unsafe, and your mental health will suffer. You are a robot that will be programmed to operate "the Boys town way". Keep your ideas and opinions to yourself or you will find yourself looking for a new job (which is actually the best thing management will ever do for you). There are very few places to work in which you would be worse off.

    Advice to Management

    Waste of my time to write anything here.

    Pros

    The mission statement, if they were to uphold it. Working with children in need. Sense of friendship within immediate co-worker team. Great pay with outstanding benefits that are unmatched by any company I've ever seen.

    Cons

    "old boy network" mentality. Upper management don't appreciate talent and they punish individuality and intelligence. Too many unnecessary middle managers. All managers came to their positions by manipulation and earning "boys town" degrees that aren't valid any place other than boys town.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter what advice I give them. I gave them feedback while working their and was punished for it. They are as mentally ill and childish as the youth they care for. They only care about the money from the kids and not their well-being. Shame on BTNRH, you are dishonoring Father Flanninigan's name and mission.


  7. Great feeling getting to help children, but high turn over rate.

    Pros

    Feeling like you can make a difference in the lives of young children.

    Cons

    Management treated staff like a number. There is 95% turn over rate for staff because they do not have proper training and are not paid well for what they have to deal with. Often times there were not enough people working on a shift. Dangerous situations where children are harmful to themselves and or others did not seem to get taken care of in a very professional manner. There were times that nurses were not available for heath situations. The job seems very impersonal to the children because the staff is required to use particular wording when speaking the children as the children are a on a motivational point card system. The negative aspect about that system is that the children easily learn it and are able to manipulate the system. A person can not be too empathetic when working with a point system and these children need more than a point system to fix their behaviors. Once these children go back into the real world situations, they do not seem prepared because they became so accustomed to the point system and structure.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to care for and teach the children so that they do not manipulate the point card system. Treat the children as people and not numbers. The point card system is very impersonal when you are trying to care for children who have severe behavioral issues and require more care and attention. Once these children go back into the real world situations, they do not seem prepared because they became so accustomed to the point system and structure. What are you doing to teach these children and their families once they return to real world situations? What is the success rate of these children once they leave the Boys Town program. It does not seem very likely that these children will be able to adapt to real world situations because of this program.

    Pros

    good human resources department, good ethics & values as a company. nursing department seems like the best department to be in.

    Cons

    Very expensive benefits if part-time and poor pay compared to other institutions. Poor guidance and leadership by my particular Research Associate. No management skills and lack of knowledge hospital policies, but my "manager" only managed one or two employees. Bottom of the totem pole feeling and no gratitude from supervisor. Not a high paying job and hard to be self-motivated for an ungrateful boss whom you do so much work for.

    Advice to Management

    Research Scientists and Associates may have the skills needed to perform research, but I would invest more time in human relations and managment training if in charge of any employees. Supervisor was very self-involved and did not make her assistants feel like a part of her team.

    Keep your mouth shut, and do what you're told; an opinion that differs means you're a troublemaker and not a team player

    Pros

    Flexible Hours and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely limited room for advancement within the company. Nepotism at it's worst. Extremely limited room for personal growth. Ideas and opinions are not welcome from anyone not in an administrative role. Pay is marginal, and all wage increases are limited to a annual 2.5% raise.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not interested in advice/feedback. They will tell you that they have an "open door policy", however, any advice/feedback given will be used against you in your annual review.
