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.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
