I have been working at Boys Town full-time for less than a year

Pros

The organization truly helps families and children in many different levels by providing them with the strategies and tools they need to achieve social, emotional and physical well-being.

Cons

Salaries tend to be low. Hours on the job can drastically exceed the compensation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the disparity between work and compensation.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, helping families and children in need, working to fulfill Father Flanagan's legacy, the opportunity to work with like-minded people, rewarding, ability to see benefits of your work.

    Cons

    The structure at Boys Town is very rigid and does not allow for career development. I have witnessed employees who did not meet the qualifications of a position get promoted based on the fact they were a good friend of someone in senior management. There is hardly any accountability for managers and they (the ones I have been in contact with) take full advantage of this. As another review mentioned, I have also seen supervisors and directors become extremely defensive when an issue is brought up (instead of being open to talking about it and being solution-focused). In my time here, it seems as though the management takes the easy way out and tries to cover up problems instead of fixing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Humility and accountability needs to start at the top. Focus on the kids instead of the "business" of Boys Town.

    I worked at Boys Town

    Pros

    People are very friendly, supportive upper management staff. great location, it has that homely feel to it. i really felt that i was making a difference in the lives of children served by Boys Town

    Cons

    kids could be hostile at times but like what we have been told: it's just the behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work!
