I have been working at Board of Child Care full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good Intentions
Decent Pay and Benefits
Above Average Cleanliness and Groundskeeping
Support Staff (ie. clerical, custodial, etc) are very helpful

Cons

Supervisory staff posturing against residents
Supervisory staff threatening/intimidating residents
Supervisory staff failing to follow up on residents' grievances
Staff, primarily supervisors, implementing incorrect/inappropriate TCI techniques
Lack of consistent leadership
Lack of consistent application of policy/procedure
Failure to acknowledge employee efforts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management, to include cottage supervisors, campus supervisors, education liaisons and directors need to communicate more effectively. Management should be more receptive to staff input and suggestions since management is seldom involved in direct care of residents. Positive reinforcement of employees' efforts would be helpful as well.

    I have been working at Board of Child Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary is ok and benefits are decent

    Cons

    Supervisor is crazy -- unpredictable and argumentative
    New tasks are constantly being added to work load without consideration for available time
    No power but all the blame
    Campus is always short staffed
    Never enough parking
    In certain departments there is no room for advancement
    Clear division between CEO and the rest of the staff (Acura SUV's for the top management, house maintenance, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some gratitude for your employees' hard work! Acknowledge the painstaking care your staff take to help the residents, despite behaviors the residents may display. Notice the devotion your employees have to BCC and their work. A heartfelt thank you from those in control can mean a lot.
