    Pros

    Best part is knowing you are helping kids change their life. You get to provide a family environment for kids who nasty have never experienced one. There is so much support offered to the kids.

    Cons

    Lack off support from management, bad gossiping that occurs, unprofessional like behavior from management. At times very stressful when you reach out for help and receive little or no support.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others with the respect, support, dignity and be truthful as you would want someone to be to you. Don't gossip about your employees to other management.

    Pros

    If you care about kids, this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Management has an attitude that they know best, when they don't participate in any of the teaching and care giving-ever. They don't seem to value the peons at the bottom, don't ask our advice, and don't realize that we put our heart and soul into these kids. It's really not just a job, but an all-encompassing, all-consuming 5 am to midnight endeavor to feed, clothe, teach, and manage a house of 6 kids...and then do the paperwork to document that it is done.

    Advice to Management

    Feel free to participate in activities with the youth, mentor one or two, get to know them personally. Appreciate the family teachers and assistant family teachers who are in the "trenches" doing the hard work. We know we can't do our job without the paper pushers, but you don't seem to know we are the ones working the long hours.

    Pros

    The company believes in their mission from the top to the bottom. They truly believe in changing the way america cares for children and families. They have a lot of research to support their model of care. The compensation is competitive and the benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    They are always wanting more and not considerate of your personal life and health. The management recognizes the negative behavior, but does not use positive reinforcement. They have no sense of the amount of stress and emotionally draining working with youth 24/7 does.

    Advice to Management

    Reward positive behavior and encourage personal growth. Encourage opportunities to have a work-life balance that encourages personal growth.
