Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN

Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great organization, sincere interest in helping at-risk youth and families

Cons

Very demanding work - hours and hours of documentation outside of hours required for each client; many meetings - some beneficial, some not so much, scheduled every week, interfering with ability to meet demands of client sessions. Most employees lack experience and necessary training - approach seems more of a "fake it til you make it" philosophy, at least with my supervisor.
