    I have been working at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are great, benefits are amazing. Also, many untold rewards when serving the youth and families that are from all parts of this country.

    Cons

    Hard job. Not all people you work with are equally competent. Some "special"people get by with more than others. Can be extremely challenging for some personality types.

    Advice to Management

    All levels of the company should be held accountable. When lesser people aren't held accountable, it affects the morale of all levels.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with children, can be rewarding, good health benefits

    Cons

    Poor salary compared to similar agencies in the area. Raises are rare, opportunity to move up is very limited. Management in behavioral health has been around for 15+ years, very stuck in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees at all levels competitive wages and you will retain quality employees.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance. Pharmacy benefits are awesome. PTO and sick time are good. A lot of generic medications don't cost after insurance. Saves a lot of money.

    Cons

    Management is very politically correct. No support for staff. Pt/client is always right. There is never 2 sides to a story, only the pts

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of staff. Be less punitive and more instructional in disciplinary actions. Use them as a learning tool.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Heath benefits can't be matched. Basically no additional costs outside of your premium if you go to a boystown clinic/hospital.

    Cons

    Everything else. You will be demoralized my management and children. You will be physically unsafe, and your mental health will suffer. You are a robot that will be programmed to operate "the Boys town way". Keep your ideas and opinions to yourself or you will find yourself looking for a new job (which is actually the best thing management will ever do for you).

    There are very few places to work in which you would be worse off.

    Advice to Management

    Waste of my time to write anything here.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission statement, if they were to uphold it. Working with children in need. Sense of friendship within immediate co-worker team. Great pay with outstanding benefits that are unmatched by any company I've ever seen.

    Cons

    "old boy network" mentality. Upper management don't appreciate talent and they punish individuality and intelligence. Too many unnecessary middle managers. All managers came to their positions by manipulation and earning "boys town" degrees that aren't valid any place other than boys town.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter what advice I give them. I gave them feedback while working their and was punished for it. They are as mentally ill and childish as the youth they care for. They only care about the money from the kids and not their well-being. Shame on BTNRH, you are dishonoring Father Flanninigan's name and mission.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Feeling like you can make a difference in the lives of young children.

    Cons

    Management treated staff like a number. There is 95% turn over rate for staff because they do not have proper training and are not paid well for what they have to deal with. Often times there were not enough people working on a shift. Dangerous situations where children are harmful to themselves and or others did not seem to get taken care of in a very professional manner. There were times that nurses were not available for heath situations. The job seems very impersonal to the children because the staff is required to use particular wording when speaking the children as the children are a on a motivational point card system. The negative aspect about that system is that the children easily learn it and are able to manipulate the system. A person can not be too empathetic when working with a point system and these children need more than a point system to fix their behaviors. Once these children go back into the real world situations, they do not seem prepared because they became so accustomed to the point system and structure.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to care for and teach the children so that they do not manipulate the point card system. Treat the children as people and not numbers. The point card system is very impersonal when you are trying to care for children who have severe behavioral issues and require more care and attention. Once these children go back into the real world situations, they do not seem prepared because they became so accustomed to the point system and structure. What are you doing to teach these children and their families once they return to real world situations? What is the success rate of these children once they leave the Boys Town program. It does not seem very likely that these children will be able to adapt to real world situations because of this program.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good human resources department, good ethics & values as a company. nursing department seems like the best department to be in.

    Cons

    Very expensive benefits if part-time and poor pay compared to other institutions. Poor guidance and leadership by my particular Research Associate. No management skills and lack of knowledge hospital policies, but my "manager" only managed one or two employees. Bottom of the totem pole feeling and no gratitude from supervisor. Not a high paying job and hard to be self-motivated for an ungrateful boss whom you do so much work for.

    Advice to Management

    Research Scientists and Associates may have the skills needed to perform research, but I would invest more time in human relations and managment training if in charge of any employees. Supervisor was very self-involved and did not make her assistants feel like a part of her team.
