    I have been working at Boys Town full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Every day when I come to work I feel good about what I do. I don't work directly with the youth but I know that I am making a difference in children's life. Boys Town's Mission is about changing the way America cares for children and families by providing and promoting a continuum of care that strengthens body, mind and spirit.
    I truly love my job!

    Cons

    I don't have any. Boys Town is a non-profit and the wages reflect that.

    Advice to Management

    As with any management it's always important to listen to your employees - the ones on the front lines - be that working directly with the youth to the networking person setting up firewalls to keep the kids their information safe. They are the key to keeping a healthy and happy working environment. When you feel your ideas are valued then you will feel valued.
