    I have been working at Youth Villages full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a desperate for a job, YV is always hiring because of their extremely high turnover rate. And that is pretty much the only "pro"...

    Cons

    Low salary, long hours, and total lack of appreciation from management. Clinical staff earn almost nothing. Senior officers and directors openly acknowledge that clinical staff are replaceable and completely dispensable.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees a decent wage. Show some respect for the hundreds of employees who interact with the kids and their families!

    I worked at Youth Villages as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hire within. Promote within. They really care about all employees.

    Cons

    If you are working with at-risk youth, you're going to have to deal with some stress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
