    The care that Devereux employees provide to those in their care is awesome. This group of people definitely care more about others than themselves. Devereux provides a good salary, with excellent employee benefits.

    I have been working at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will be able to make your own schedule. You are compensated for mileage.

    Cons

    You will not receive assistance from supervisors, and they do not like people to complain about the lack of help however it is highly known as true. This is strange because management has meetings about the high turnover, yet do not take responsibility. You must be resourceful to survive at Devereux with a high level of patience.

    Advice to Management

    Assist case managers more once out of training. Do not just pile cases on new case managers with minimal assistance from Supervisors. Gradually add cases as time passes. After case managers exit training course, allow case managers to shadow seasoned case managers before giving cases.

    Pros

    Helping youth, co workers, excellent benefits, always someone in management who remembers the campus/dorm, issues, and will become involved is warranted, positive supervisors for the most part

    Cons

    As always, there are some persons in management who work w/ their personal level opinions and will seriously attempt to act on them, some say the youths behavioral problems are stressful, attending on going (needed) trainings/meetings

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your staff who have proved themselves & who have genuine care for the youth

    Pros

    Work with kiddos that need you.

    Cons

    Expected to work two to three hours after shift to do paperwork. Only pay 12.50 plus $1 shift deferential if you work after 3pm and on weekends. Working 14 hour shifts with no 15 minute breaks, bathroom breaks when you can (rare), no meal breaks. Expect injuries from the kids. Management always telling you how to do better, not addressing moral or high turnover. Lack of supervisors because of high turnover and low moral. Benefits are expensive and you are already at a very low (non-living) wage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living wage, give your employees breaks including meal breaks.
