Pros

Supportive & fun Management

Staff are very responsive to crisis situations
Thorough training prior to start date

Cons

Gossipy-Amongst the staff
Stressful
On the job training could be better
Communication is an issue
If you're not inerested in helping emotionally/sexually/physically traumatized kids & you just need a paycheck-this is not the place for you. You wont last more than a month as direct support/campus support/program coordinator.

Advice to Management

Hire compassionite people!

    Pros

    Good amount of vacation time off compared to other companies starting immediately after probationary period.

    Cons

    expect to work alot and figure out your responsibilities while you are on the job. Training is very general and does not at all prepare you to be a supervisor. When your employees call out, prepare to work. Education is not recognized nor compensated as much as it should be. Years of experience in the field over shadow intelligience, which is completely backward. Things change every week,hard to get used to your job responsibilities. In summary if you have a BA or higher...keep looking, don't settle for Devereux, it is not worth the aggrevation. Horrible pay for the work that is expected.

    Advice to Management

    There should be some diversity amongst the executives in terms of gender. It gets "catty" based on the current climate of the senior leaders- At the director level and above. Also, very gossip laden amongst the senior leaders. Decisions are often based on the "mood of the day" . College click like atmosphere amongst mgmt.
