I worked at VisionQuest full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

the kids you get to work with and the other staff members make the experience of working here bearable.

Cons

management is a mess...they spend money on irrelevant things, while cutting services and salaries and laying people off left and right. The CEO flies all over the country and has 'management meetings' at his beach house on the company dime, while the front line workers are being made to take furlough days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there are several good people in the corporate office, but their advice is generally ignored because it doesn't allow the rest of them to continue to spend money as they please.

    I worked at VisionQuest

    Pros

    great experience working with troubled adolescents. Visionquest helped to prepare me for social service employment in the future with adolescents. You learn how to build relationships with the adolescents. As a staff of Visionquest, you also learn about some therapeutic interventsions used to treat the residnests. You also have the oppurtunity to conduct and facilitate groups.

    Cons

    Upper Management not understanding of Employees, Direct care staff under staffed (very little staff support in the field). the youth are manipulative and you must be strong enough to deal with the emotional rollercoaster that is imminent.
     The Youth are very unpredictatble. Therapuetic holds are utilized to control youths behaviors, which can be dangerous for the staff as well as the child being held.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more direct care staff members

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
