Pros

Personal work experience with people that really care about you. Although the company is now over 200 employees, there are roughly thirty employees at each house. The staff I work with are extremely supportive and know you and care about you personally. It will help you grow personally and that in itself will help you grow in your career.

Cons

HORRIBLE benefit packages bad ethics of the company. Upper management could not place a face with my name. This job is emotionally hard and the compensation is not good. This job is the equivalent of an emotional punching bag, because the adolescents are extremely challenging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

value your employees, look at our employee turnover!

    I have been working at Center for Discovery full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If this company wants to keep you, they're really flexible and will find a way to keep you employed. When you end up with a supportive team, coming to work is rewarding and exciting. Depending on the timing, there are opportunities to advance within the company and to work in a variety of settings. If you work in residential, getting to eat for free helps save money and makes up for low pay. 401K plan is nice and in general improvements are being made.

    Cons

    Entry level positions pay low. Benefits are expensive through the company. Job duties can sometimes be unclear. Unprofessional employees that probably should be terminated seem to get overlooked repeatedly at times whereas solid employees are rewarded inconsistently. Any transitions (promotions, changing locations) are difficult and frustrating, plans are often made before important details have been figured out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to hammer out details before offering promotions. Improve communication in general (some supervisors are excellent at responding with pertinent information whereas others may not respond at all or respond with information not related to the issue).
