Awful.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Granite City, IL

ProsManagement in other sections is very knoweldgeable and nice. There is many nice and helpful employees that work at Children's Home and Aid.

ConsManagment has favorites with a few employees. Management says one thing one day and another thing a different day or even after a few hours when they catch you doing what they asked the first time. They forget what they said, so then you are in trouble when you are doing what they asked in the first place! There is NO training when you are hired, so you either sink or swim. The main manager makes horible comments to employees about everything - what they buy, what they bring to lunch... It is a miserable place to work and I am currently looking for something else at this time. They have already made 3 great employees so miserable they quit. When there has been important meetings or trainings their employees needed to attend, several times the managers have forgotten about them until it was too late for their employees to go. Unacceptable.

Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge all of your employees, treat them all fairly. Make and enforce rules consistantly to all employees. Play an active role in employees jobs. Have enough backbone to stand up when people are coming to you and saying things are wrong - do something about it instead of passing the buck to someone else. Have a strong training for new employees from someone that knows how to train the person. Get rid of employees who hurt other employees by making the office a battleground of gossip and back stabbing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Children's Home + Aid is Rewarding

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Rockford, IL

    I have been working at Children's Home + Aid

    Pros: The atmosphere at Children's Home and Aid is the most rewarding. We are like a big family here and everyone here is so friendly… Cons: The fact that it is a non-profit agency makes it difficult at times to stay within the tight budgets.… Advice to Senior Management: Keep up the great work!! Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    Not for the faint of heart

    I worked at Children's Home + Aid full-time

    Pros: Great place for self growth. Cons: No way to move up the career ladder. Advice to Senior Management: Show your employees that you appreciate them. Especially the individuals… – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
