I have been working at George Junior Republic part-time (less than a year)

Pros

You get the opportunity to build relationships with troubled youth and have a positive impact on these gentleman's life. The company is good to work for if you don't mind working for no pay and not really accomplishing anything.

Cons

Promotion usually happens from within, especially within my department. Meaning supervisors are highly unqualified, power abusing, and in much need of micromanagement training.

    Pros

    The young men that are placed at GJR are generally very rewarding to work with. I feel that I have been able to have a positive affect on many of their lives in one way or another during my tenure at GJR.

    Cons

    Terrible work hours for social worker/ TTCs; no appreciation from administration; focused only on what you do wrong and never say what you do right; you don't learn how to do something until you either haven't done it or you do it wrong; supervisors are mean and condescending; the entire place is dysfunctional from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your employees that they do something right once in a while!!!!! Act like you actually care about something other than money!!!!! Figure out how to make the supervisors get along and stop playing games so that the people under their supervision do not have to suffer!!!!!
