    Staff in Lombard, IL

    I worked at Adolescent Growth

    Pros

    I left several months ago and it was not bad work helping kids and just talking with them. I enjoyed going to work most of the time and didn't have any real problems in spite of all the things the corporate office needed to fix. Some stuff make it hard to do your job and it don't always feel like support for simple things from the California office. Things could be a little better with some real time and effort. I learned a lot and enjoyed my conversations with the assistant program manager. A lot of really nice young people that just needed basic training. Black owned company.

    Cons

    If you believe in the spirit realm, the environment can feel real negative at times. You can really feel it. Little things don't get taken care of and so they turn to big things. Some employees never figured out what their real responsibilities were and so some people ended up carrying more responsibilities than others. I heard the negativity finally got to the assistant manager, which is a shame because he was the glue there. It was bound to happen, no one can endure that long. One of the best people and young black professionals i have met. Gave a lot of former employees a sense of pride. Nothing really bad to say other than start with the basics and focus on the kids.

    I worked at Adolescent Growth for less than a year

    Pros

    The clients are the best ever! An opportunity to make a impact on a young life is top here. The staff at the local level is decent and they care.

    Cons

    Run Run Run!!! They(Upper Management will deceive you. They lack integrity. They are not understanding for the concerns of the staff. Micro managing at all times. Buyer Beware! You are always under the microscope even when you are hard working and doing your very best! They always find some reason to gripe on you. That is how you don't get a raise. They make sure to tag your what they call down falls. So No Raise for you ! Real Slick to operate like that. Immates in prison get better treated than staff in this facility. No one is trying to do them in but they think people are. The California administrative staff are puppets to say the least.

    I worked at Adolescent Growth part-time

    Pros

    Easy way to gain some professional experience, some of the clients are truly wonderful and rewarding.

    Cons

    The rampant dysfunction in this place is a serious liability. You will receive no training. There will be no consistency or communication on how to handle challenging client behaviors. You will be placed in professionally compromising situations on a regular basis. The clients absolutely run the show and they pit staff against each other....and it works, since staff doesn't communicate effectively and there are quite literally no rules that are enforced standard across the board. The pay is abysmal. The turnover is so high that I agree with what someone said before me; don't even bother learning people's names. I feel bad for the parents that are paying thousands of dollars in hopes of their child healing because that's not at all what is going on here. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
