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

Pros

The sad part about this is that there aren't any pros. The check would have to be the only pro.

Cons

The leadership cares about the leadership. It's a popularity vote when it comes to promotions and quarterly awards. If you are applying for the Teacher Counselor position look for another job now. You do not get paid enough for the work they have you doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees other than leadership equally. Think about others lives outside of Youth Villages

    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.
