    I have been working at KidsPeace part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Growth opportunity, good training, some staff are very committed to enhancing their work environment and are very professional. I have had good managers and colleagues that work together very well.

    Cons

    There is no perfect place so I guess it depends on the reviewer. the only con I see is that sometimes they have to rely on individuals who are transient and not truly trying to become professionals in the field that they are working. this is always risky especially when working with children.

    Pros

    Medsabi Academy is a treatment center for troubled youth. The turnover is very high for both staff and clients. you will have two weeks of training and half of that is dealing with crisis management. This includes deescalation and restraining type holds for when the clients start fighting each other or fighting staff. The ages range from roughly 13 to 21. They all have their programs and most take medication that you would have to distribute if you make it 6 months. There is a lot of room to move up within Mesabi Academy and since it is corporate and ran by Kidspeace you can have a career through them. Most dont though. If you can handle the overnights thats the way to go. You get paid the same as day staff and will allow unlimited overtime.

    Cons

    May get beat up by clients. Some have been sent to the hospital. Will call you asking you to pick up shifts pretty much once you walk out the door and wont remember the sacrifices you make for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Show more recognition. Be more open to advice.

    Pros

    If you like working with children and really want the opportunity to make a difference in their lives, this is definately the job. I love my department and co-workers, not sure what headquarters and senior management are doing....nothing rewarding for the employees though.

    Cons

    Not compensated for the difficulty of the work we do, those that do an exceptional job are not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Employees would be more satisfied and eager to stay here if you took care of the people that make this company viable.
