Hard Work-But Worth It

Direct Support (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Devereux Foundation

ProsHelping kids who have survived a trauma
Having the ability to effect change in a youths life
Supportive & fun Management
Team-Oriented
Staff are very responsive to crisis situations
Thorough training prior to start date

ConsGossipy-Amongst the staff
Stressful
On the job training could be better
Communication is an issue
If you're not inerested in helping emotionally/sexually/physically traumatized kids & you just need a paycheck-this is not the place for you. You wont last more than a month as direct support/campus support/program coordinator.

Very stressful and disorganized

Program Supervisor (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I worked at Devereux Foundation


Pros: Good amount of vacation time off compared to other companies… Cons: expect to work alot and figure out your responsibilities while you are on the job. Training is very general and does not at all… Advice to Senior Management: There should be some diversity amongst the executives in terms of gender. It gets "catty" based on the current climate of the senior leaders-… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
