Pros

Great organization, sincere interest in helping at-risk youth and families

Cons

Very demanding work - hours and hours of documentation outside of hours required for each client; many meetings - some beneficial, some not so much, scheduled every week, interfering with ability to meet demands of client sessions. Most employees lack experience and necessary training - approach seems more of a "fake it til you make it" philosophy, at least with my supervisor.

    Pros

    The relationships I have built with my coworkers are positive, uplifting and long lasting. I also enjoy the work with my clients.

    Cons

    This job is like an abusive relationship. its tears you down and makes you feel like its your own fault. Then it gives you a slight glimpse of hope which makes you think things will change..and it doesn't. Stressful work environment, no help when trying to take vacations, not feeling comfortable to go to management with problems because you will get shamed or get talked to about "time management" which the company does not help you maintain, low pay, management plays favorites and only will invest in you if you drink the company cool aid.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and give them support. We work as a team for the betterment of these kids and their families. When the helpers feel helpless...what kind of impact are we supposed to have on other?
