    I worked at NAFI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    lots of over time more than you want

    Cons

    unsafe environment. Management expects staff to put their lives in high crisis situations. Police are called several times for disturbance. There is potential for getting burned out. Management has the right words to say around parents. As soon as the parents leave The other side of staff comes out. They target certain teens to set them for restraints . They have clicks like high school grown ups. They set staff... up when you speak your mind and concerns. Be prepared to be manipulated by teenagers. Several 51a are files on staff. Management is not supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. The job is difficult. The pay is poor. Try listening to your staff instead of yessing them to death so you can leave your shift on time. Try showing up at the group homes instead of ridiculing shift reports work in our position for a week.. Im sure you are all snickering now.

    Current Employee - Shift Supervisor in Danvers, MA

    I have been working at NAFI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You learn to really trust your co workers and have the opportunity to really be proud of your work in supporting the youth. Great opportunity to hone your crisis intervention skills and there was a lot of freedom for staff to initiate activities, projects and games.

    Cons

    High turn over means you're always playing catch-up in training staff. Lower pay than comparative companies, but it makes up for it with a strong sense of community.
