    I worked at Youth Villages full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Growing company, meaningful mission, great people doing the actual work. Upper management makes good money and great benefits. Due to fast national growth, lots of opportunity for advancement on the direct care side.

    Cons

    Plantation mentality, only wants young, inexperienced workers who can be molded to their corporate line. Also, front line workers are expected to work horrendous hours with little to no time off and little pay. Turnover on the front lines is off the chart - at the time I left they were lucky to keep folks for six months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat your workers like human beings.

    Pros

    Good experience for young college grads to put on their resume. Good professional development. Definitely looks good on paper.

    Cons

    Low pay, little to no overtime pay depending on the position, they'll work you to death.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they're worth.
