    I worked at Youth Villages full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    working with families and collaterals, seeing the success of the youth and their families!

    Cons

    work hours are unreal! expect to leave your life at the door if you choose to work there! The admins care more about $ than the health of their employees! The client knows best, yet the admins shove unnecessary extensions which makes our families and collaterals displeased. The mileage expense reimbursed is much lower than the national average. The admins focus too much on the output (called scorecard) where you get graded on documentation. Upper management are hypocritical and abusive.

    Advice to Management

    get real and appreciate your staff!

    I worked at Youth Villages full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employee training, good experience if you are looking to advance in the social services field, a lot of room for advancement within the company. They promote from within and offer tuition reimbursement. A lot of opportunity to see a variety of social services settings. Very results driven. Incredible employee benefits. It's a good job if you go in knowing what to expect.

    Cons

    Low starting pay, although that is almost all social work jobs. You will work long hours if you are involved with direct care, to the point that it sometimes feels like you are neglecting your own family to help someone else's. Leadership doesn't always listen to field staff who are directly working with the kids and seems somewhat disconnected from front line staff. Sometimes seems like they either hold onto cases too long or discharge too early from care because they are overly concerned with the census numbers (but that goes back to the disconnected leadership).

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to front line staff and ask for feedback.
