    I worked at KidsPeace full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong camaraderie between coworkers makes for a productive environment. Generous paid time off (which you'll need to use if you choose to work here)

    Cons

    Management=HUGE problem. Too many unqualified people in management positions!!! No loyalty to seasoned employees. Pay more attention to quantity over quality.

    Advice to Management

    Really take a look at the performance and attention to fine details before making assumptions!

    Pros

    This position really allows you to feel like you are making a positive difference in the lives of young children and teens. The position teaches you empathy, patience, and compassion.

    Cons

    The company does not seem to care for the safety or well being of its employees. Raises have not been given in over six years, staff are often placed in dangerous situations, and administration does not listen to its staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what the direct care staff are suggesting and always put the clients' needs first. The clients are there to receive treatment, do not look at them as profit for the company.

    Pros

    I can't name one for this particular division other than "good intentions".

    Cons

    Very poor management; no raises due to bankruptcy; 1 person is expected to do the work of 5; very cliquish; extremely disorganized; hiring process = HORRIBLE and INVASIVE!

    Advice to Management

    Know what you're supposed to be doing/get out of your office and work/quit trying to be everyone's friend (then stab them in the back)/stop expecting perfection if you are unwilling to show by example

    I worked at KidsPeace full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was great in the beginning when everyone cared about everyone clients staff management all went to hell with the transition

    Cons

    Supervisors at the school have favorites. "principals" like to yell at staff in front of other staff and belittle them in front of the clients. Should probably start drug testing supervisors

    Advice to Management

    Without direct care staff supervisors would not have a job remember it's direct care staff supervisors then CEOs without the bottom tier there is no top-tier

    I have been working at KidsPeace full-time

    Pros

    You get a solid work experience when you interact and work with the clients. There is a ton of verbal escalation practice with all the clients that get close to assaulting each other or assaulting the staff. The benefits would be great as well.....if you didn't get shafted in your first six months. The training itself is also a valuable tool, that brings you back to college or high school where you must have X amount of credits/courses in order to continue.

    Cons

    If you are in any way whatsoever Military Leadership, do not work here. Management will force you to decide to pick your job or those soldiers that are under you. If you do pick your soldiers when problems arise, management here will harp on you and you will get in trouble. The management is so far gone from being any bit united that the workers in the residential houses do not feel the effects of "red flag" meetings called on by the executives. The management also fails in assuring your personal physical safety from physically aggressive clients. I could go on from being in a leadership position myself, but needless to say, maybe the only assured thing about this job is that there will be a verbal or physical fight every time you go in for your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page, if you say you're going to say something, then follow up on that promise and commit to your employees. If the person you're interviewing with harps on having to be compliant with military obligations related to the officer/NCO rank, then you actually listen and not force them to decide whether to choose the soldier or the company. The soldier will always come first before the company and forcing employees to make that decision is a bit rediculous when you assure them that you will be compliant. Elliott B.
