    Pros

    I loved working with the kids and being a good role model for them. It allowed me to be creative and I left with strong personal connections to both the kids and staff.

    Cons

    The staff hired need to be prepared better to intervene in dangerous situations. The professional staff have a disconnext when working with the floor staff. Unfortunately the campus is less supportive than it alleges for both the youth residing there and the staff working there. When taking this position be aware that you will be surrounded in a volatile environment more often than not.

    Advice to Management

    Train staff quicker and more indepth. Get actual activities planned and better planned "therapeutic groups" which are not at all therapeutic. Make these kids face their actual issues and decisions rather than enabling them in the way the organization continues to do


  6. Overall nice people and working conditions.

    Pros

    If low pay and watching the inner circle go to lunch, shop and take credit for your work sound like a pro...

    Cons

    If you start at OHU, you may feel like you want to do what you can for the clients. Its a trap, you can do very little for them. Volunteer your time, but dont make them your career.

    Advice to Management

    Step down

    Pros

    OHU is dedicated to protecting children and strengthening families.

    As a NFP organization, no stockholders or owners benefit when profits are made; all of these $ stay in the organization to strengthen the organization and generate income to support future operations.

    Cons

    The heavy reliance on governmental funding...state and local in particular....is a risk. Relatively weak fundraising results a weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Find non-governmental funding streams. Strengthen fundraising efforts and results.
