I have been working at Boys Town full-time

Pros

Working with the kids and seeing the change in them for the better is extremely rewarding. Even in a support position, where you don't work directly with youth or families, all you have to do is go to a home for dinner or attend a function the youth are having and you can see the difference.
There is training and support for every department. The training for direct care staff is motivating and prepares new employees for their positions.
Majority of the employees are here for the Mission and it shows.
Excellent benefits and opportunity for growth & development.

Cons

Being non-profit, the salary ranges tend to be a little lower than for-profit organizations.

Advice to Management

Keep recognizing and rewarding top performers in each program/department!

    Pros

    - Good pay and great benefits
    - Excellent training and continued education
    - They promote from within and offer tuition reimbursement
    - The Boys Town Model really works for a lot of kids and you can see lives transformed
    - 4 day work week

    Cons

    - Highly stressful work environment (working with teens from very troubled backgrounds)
    - Supervisors do not respect your days off, as they are constantly calling for you to work extra hours
    - Sometimes expected to work extra long shifts (15 hours) without overtime pay. They will "rearrange" hours in order to avoid you going over 40 in a week... even though you did!
    - Required to work holidays
    - You can't get time off unless you find someone to cover your shift because it's a 24/7 facility.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors need to respect workers' days off and avoid calling them in. They should also offer to take over with the kids every once in awhile so that workers' can get a break. This is a very stressful job and lots of people burn out quickly.
