I have been working at Youth Villages full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

If you are a desperate for a job, YV is always hiring because of their extremely high turnover rate. And that is pretty much the only "pro"...

Cons

Low salary, long hours, and total lack of appreciation from management. Clinical staff earn almost nothing. Senior officers and directors openly acknowledge that clinical staff are replaceable and completely dispensable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay employees a decent wage. Show some respect for the hundreds of employees who interact with the kids and their families!

    Pros

    working with families and collaterals, seeing the success of the youth and their families!

    Cons

    work hours are unreal! expect to leave your life at the door if you choose to work there! The admins care more about $ than the health of their employees! The client knows best, yet the admins shove unnecessary extensions which makes our families and collaterals displeased. The mileage expense reimbursed is much lower than the national average. The admins focus too much on the output (called scorecard) where you get graded on documentation. Upper management are hypocritical and abusive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get real and appreciate your staff!

    Pros

    Hire within. Promote within. They really care about all employees.

    Cons

    If you are working with at-risk youth, you're going to have to deal with some stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.
