    Pros

    Boys Town is a positive environment that has a mission to help children and families. Boys Town has excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The rate of salary increase every year is very low. Often times caseloads are high which impacts quality to families and ability to do well. Employees are encouraged to take time off to prevent burnout but realistically that isn't possible.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your direct care staff when they tell you their case loads are too high. Ask for their feedback before changes are implemented.

    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.
