YAI Should be a great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at YAI National Institute

Pros- Easy to get comfortable
- Constant staff training
- Professional at times
- Working with like-minded people can be great
- Many career driven people

Cons- Advancement is non-existent
- Working in group homes is extremely stressful
- Due to the nature of the work, employees back stab each other frequently
- Management does not care if you love the company, any problems and they pressure you to quit
- Management ACTIVELY may prevent you from any room to maneuver
- Write-ups can be used to instantly end chances for longevity or advancement
- Staff members will literally fight you on the job
- Management, especially upper management are drunk on their power

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many teachers pets and unofficial managers, ie: long-term employees that are treated like managers and given statues, yet curse/disrespect newer employees,saying things management would never be allowed to say.
Don't screw over those who love the company for those who dont.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
