    Its a great learning experience, and a great way to learn about behavioral issues with early adolescence.

    Difference between higher-level and lower-level management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- The lower-level management takes care of their people - adequate training, support, etc.
    - Working with therapists and the kids to help them make positive life changes can be very rewarding

    Cons- Upper-level management cuts on hours and staff without regard to the quality of their product - the care of the patients that they admit.
    - Patients can be very aggressive and manipulative - you need to stay on top of both your emotions and the situations you are in charge of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven if you lose a little money, keep up the number of staff. Going under profit by a little bit while still insuring a high-quality product (enough staff to help the patients stay under control and make positive lifestyle changes) is much better than saving a little profit and causing conditions in the school to be chaos.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A decent place to work, but not my ideal long-term position

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIn my position, I had a very flexible schedule. But overall, the biggest pro would have to be the opportunity for rewarding experiences working with youth.

    ConsThe youth can be very belligerent, rude, and even aggressive. You have to be able to not take things personally, because you will at some point be personally (usually just verbally) attacked.
    I felt like there was animosity between different departments at times. Rather than working as a cohesive team of service providers, the various departments (and employees within those departments) seemed to butt heads a lot and were not willing to share resources.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk for and respect the feedback you receive from employees. They are the ones dealing with the students and the program structure on a daily basis and could give very useful and constructive feedback about how to better serve the students.
