    I worked at Home for Little Wanderers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Once you know the kids they can be amazing to work with (for the most part) albeit very tough as well. Can be rewarding. Not a lot of Pros at this time.

    Cons

    Leadership is nil. Kids run the campus which is dangerous. Incidents of severity are often unaddressed leading to dissatisfaction among staff. Staff and managers not on same page. Staff talk about change, what they need and are told no or ignored. Many injuries. Can be UNSAFE for staff! Campus needs an entire make-over cosmetically but more importantly with staff from the top on down. Employee bullying makes for a very unpleasant work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a LEADER not an ADMINISTRATOR!! Listen to DCS they are the FRONT LINE! Keep them safe. Needs so much work.
