I have been working at Youth Villages full-time for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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?

    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
