    I have been working at BCFS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The kids are the only reason, and the training that they gave you when you start, but after that you dont receive orientation or help when have doubts, and will be very difficult that your lead have a chance to help you.

    Cons

    Stressful, you can not to have a balance between your personal life and the job, because all is the job. Weekends, and days on the week after work, you should work. Every week you need to prepare reviews and tests for 5 subjects or levels. Pretty Stressful job. Would be easier give just one or 2 course and give the same class in 2 different centers.
    Because to prepare so many classes at the same time is not possible, and less when you are preparing all the material. They want that you create binders and curriculums and leave to them when you left the job, when All those plans, and materials of the classes literally you need do it in your house.

     Why you need to share a material that you have had to work after school, using your free time?
     If they want curriculums and a portal with all the material for classes, they should to give you just 1 or 2 classes to the teacher at the same time with the same level no more, and should give you enough time. For another hand, ETO does not work correctly, you need entry the grades several times.
    For another hand while you leave your life dedicating to BCFS, the "Direct Care Staff"go there to be talking or interrupting your classes. They should not to have so many staff that go there just to read a book or be talking, instead they should have teachers assistant or really people that at least pay attention to the kids at the classrooms. Sometimes specially in spanish and math you could have, no one or 2 levels, sometimes are 4 or 5 at the same classroom. Regarding the test friday you should give the tests, and have them corrected the same day, monday you will have your supervisor asking that you deliver the tests in alphabetic order, and pushing you to have all the grades uploaded on the system. oAnd after you uploaded all the grades, you realized, that some grades that you uploaded disappeared, and others were duplicated. In another words: When you make the 5 plans and create the material of the 5 classes by a week, the reviews and tests? in your house. You not have choice.

    I worked at BCFS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of working at BCFS ICS is the amazing kids from Central America.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? To sum it up, management, low pay, burnout, unrealistic expectations, poor training

    Advice to Management

    Stop having office affairs because your lovers talk and it honestly makes the company look like a frat house. Also, if you preach about sexual harassment, follow it. Learn how to appreciate employees, value them, and stop telling workers they are "replaceable" that just decreases employee morale which means hiring new people, spending more money rather than appreciating good workers to save money. We all heard "the budget" talks. I can go on and on.

    Pros

    BCFS main priority are the children and uniting them with their families.

    Cons

    Expect to work beyond 40 hrs a week. You barely will have time to take breaks, lunch, and restroom breaks. You will either skip lunch or work through your lunch. You will have to update the availability of beds every day. You will need to submit the census of the company every single day before shift starts. You will work about 60-70 hrs during on-call without the extra pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overwork your employees!
