    "Love the mission!"

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time

    Pros

    If you have a passion for helping at risk youth and families within your community Boys Town is the place you want to be! Coworkers are like family, teamwork is encouraged, and they invest in training.

    Cons

    Like any nonprofit work with the at risk population, it can be stressful. Resilience and self-care are important skills to have to prevent burnout.

    Pros

    You get to work for an organization that makes a difference no matter what role you are in.

    Cons

    No matter what role you are in you are impacting others. You need to be aware of that even in a support role.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time

    Pros

    The work that Boys Town does for the youth is amazing! I do not work directly with the youth but they are why I am here. I love working for a bigger reason. My team is supportive and consistently challenges me to think outside the box. Additionally, my manager is supportive and pushes me to grow on a daily basis.

    Cons

    We need to have more family friendly events for staff. We have some however it is usually on a weekend. Yesterday we invited staff's children to come and trick-or-treat at the office. It was such a fun event and it was great to see staff and their families.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Boys Town is a family oriented organization with exceptional benefits. I have been a Boys Town employee for almost 10 years and plan to work here for many more. My coworkers are fun, team oriented individuals who are all here for the mission. We all play a part in saving children and healing families, and it is very gratifying to see and hear the many success stories. No matter what position employees work in, we all have the youth in mind and play a part in bettering their lives.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    The idea of helping the children is admirable.

    Cons

    The wages for the Family Teachers is low for the amount of time and stress that the job requires. The company has gone to hourly wages for the Family Teachers who are expected to spend 15 hours per day 5 days a week on the clock to make the salary that is contracted.
