    I worked at Boys Town (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The whole staff, along with the majority of the management was supportive and friendly.

    Cons

    As you're working mostly with troubled teenagers set your expectations accordingly. You will have kids curse you out or get in your face occasionally but 99% of the time it won't escalate beyond that if you stay calm.

    Not much in terms of advancement unless you're willing to relocate.

    Pros

    The overall work environment is face pace and energetic, which for me checks all my boxes. If that's not your strong suit, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. However, if it is, you've found your place!

    Cons

    Heavy workload, not enough hours in the day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Boys Town full-time

    Pros

    Upper management is super helpful and have your back. Co-workers are willing to help cover cases for vacation time. The pay is good for a recent graduate.

    Cons

    Federal regulations has forced Boys Town to move their consultants from salary to hourly. They're cracking down on overtime which in this field of work you can expect to work a lot of overtime with client time, meetings, court, and paper work.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Every thing is good with management at BT Sioux City. Very good group of individuals and talent. Good work environment and nice office space.

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

    Pros

    Working with spouse, staying home with natural kids, helping youth learn and grow, community environment.

    Cons

    Administration tolerates extremely inappropriate behavior from youth, physical appearance is extraordinarily important, you live in a "fish bowl".

    Advice to Management

    Care for staff as much as you care for kids, create clear policies regarding boundaries and behaviors that will not be tolerated.

    Pros

    Lots of training opportunities. Great mission and values. Very youth focused. Always looking for ways to continually improve program and practices.

    Always on call and very hard to have 'down' time. Sometimes program is understaffed and those who left get burnt out from lack of support. Always heard feedback, but not alot of recognition.

    Pros

    Boys Town is very concerned about the well-being of their employees. They strive to equip them with the resources and abilities necessary to take care of their responsibilities as work, as well as outside their job.

    Cons

    Overall, a position with Boys Town is very rewarding. The amount of paperwork can feel overwhelming at times. You, also, have to enjoy helping people regardless of the pay.
