    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time

    Pros

    An amazing group of researchers. A collaborative feel and great connections to the auditory field. You could not find better.

    Cons

    Saw very mixed outcomes depending on the supervisor. Some were great and launched careers. Others completely ended careers that had high potential. Ask where former employees have gone, find out why those that left the field did so.

    Advice to Management

    You have a small group of demonstrably bad supervisors who are otherwise successful with grant funding. Invest in leadership training, step in when you see a problem.

    I worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance is good. No copays for office visits within the system. Many free generic medications available at the pharmacy. Coworkers are generally nice and are together in shared suffering

    Cons

    Poor communication from administration. Many have suffered at administrators capricious behaviors. Contract changes, pay changes, schedule changes, staffing changes made on a whim with no warning. Plan to have 4-5 different bosses that chime in at different times to remind you they are in charge of you. Lots and lots of turnover happening. Administration likes to use threats as management style. CEO turns a blind eye. Minimal opportunities for advancement. New ideas are not encouraged or welcomed. Information is hoarded among a few administrators to protect their jobs and standing.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves.

    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 full-time

    Pros

    Loved the job. Challenging, but could be fun and encouraging. Great team dynamics - but this depends from shift to shift and on location. For me, it was a great experience working with an awesome team. Plenty of opportunities for over time, if you are willing to put in the hours, the paychecks are great. Incredible benefits package.

    Cons

    Frustrations in lack of communication or involvement in multiple levels of management. Got to be a bigger problem after I left, and the problems had compounded, I know.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Don't allow them to feel over-burdened, and pressured to pick up hours, or soon all your staff will be burnt out.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Working for an organization with good meaning, location, hours

    Cons

    Work environment (close/small area), pay (seems like since they are a non-profit organization that they do not want to pay well), management (what's new)

    Advice to Management

    People don't quit jobs, they quit bosses. Pay attention to your employees needs and wants.

    I have been working at Boys Town National Research Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Great health coverage as long as you go to their doctor. Operations and work condition vary depending on the department and the boss.

    Cons

    Vision coverage is poor. Although the health coverage is good overall, there is no coverage for birth control regardless of reason because it is a catholic institution. Very strange accounting department -- new micro-managing rules pop up every day probably because someone did something that caused them to do extra work. IT department functions like a small business even though the organization is not small. Some people with questionable competence are in high positions for looooooong time. Donation/volunteer effort is part of your evaluation.

    Advice to Management

    Employee appreciation is getting poorer and poorer. The new director uses the catch phrase, "saving America's children" in every speech, but the way he runs the institution is based on how much profit they can make even though it is a non-profit institution.
