Former Employee - Youth Care Worker in Brooklyn, NY

I worked at Boys Town full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I enjoyed my boss. Had great relationships with youth.

Cons

Not traditional corporate culture. Everything is based on friends rather than your actual qualifications. No breaks during 10hr shifts. Work duties are unrealistic and always understaffed. Working with kids with severe behavioral and mental heath issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support and Provide incentives for employees to stay motivated. HIre enough staff to handle worker to child ratio so that all the work load isnt placed on one or two staff, when their should actually be 4 staff working.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great organization with a mission that is easy to get behind and support. The benefits are good and a lot of talented employees who really support the mission. Lots of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    A bit slow to change and move to new technologies or trends. Non-profit salaries can be below median, but benefits really help to balance it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward talent a bit more formally.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
