    I have been working at Youth Villages full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The families I worked with.
    DCF relationships that followed me out the door.
    The interventions are great.

    Cons

    Management
    Working 14 days straight during on-call without any break or additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house & start over with upper management & you might have a chance - right now - no one outside of YV respects the organization due to the high rate of turn over.

    I have been working at Youth Villages full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Having interaction and creative freedom with the youth. The supporting staff was pleasant and good to work with. Co-workers were helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Low salary, crazy hours, youth are always defended even when they are wrong, not a career minded company, and you have no life outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the money to keep good workers for an extended period of time. Punish the youth for their wrong doings. Develop a better system transporting the youth to appointments, training during the shift you work and have a direct 40 hour week and not crazy hours.
