Pros

Boys Town does a lot of good for the at-risk youth of America. Working at Boys Town is extremely rewarding and can be A LOT of fun (especially when the kids are having positive behaviors). You get the chance to share experiences with the kids that they have never had the chance to experience before (ex: Christmas, family vacations, playing on athletic team, etc.). Boys Town offers good benefits and an inviting work environment. It is amazing to see the transformation that the youth at Boys Town make and how big of impact you can have on their life.

Cons

Boys Town seems to solely promote based on time with the company (not skill or ability). At times management seems to overlook the workers who are not engaged and/or not following the Boys Town Values/Ethics. Due to tough work hours and the nature of the job it is hard to balance work and a personal life.

    Pros

    Boys Town is a wonderful organization that is positively impacting the lives of youth and families across the nation each and every day! It is refreshing to work in a positive environment where everyone truly believes in the mission of the organization and is here to make a difference in someone else's life! It's rewarding to be able to use your own gifts and give back to your community!

    Cons

    Employees at times may not put enough attention on their own personal health and needs because they are so driven by their desire to help others. It is important to continually encourage employees to have appropriate work/life balance. Help them understand this will make them more efficient and effective on the job, so they can continually perform to the high standards expected when delivering top services to our communities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to explore ways that Boys Town can impact the lives of more youth and families across the nation. Also continue to value your employees and the work they do on a daily basis. Explore the strengths each person can bring to the organization and work to utilize those to the fullest potential.


  2. Working with and developing the future youth of America into successful citizens was a satisfying experience.

    Pros

    The chance to change the lives of Americas youth for the better.
    Working with other individuals who are like minded.
    Seeing the success in youth that have left the program and knowing you had a part in that transformation.

    Cons

    No respect from the youth. Some extreme examples are yelling, throwing of objects, swearing, in your face spitting marathons.

    Organization wise, it is my opinion that the focus is now primarily about money and less about the youth of America.

    Administration/general lack of support

    Advice to Management

    Put more of the focus on the youth and staff that are on the front line. They are the cornerstone and the real reason behind Boys Towns success.
