    I worked at Home of the Innocents full-time

    Pros

    1) Working closely with the children in the Convalescence Center
    2) You receive great fulfillment daily working with these medically fragile children
    3) Good patient to nurse ratio, allowing for proper care

    Cons

    1) Understsffed
    2) High Turnover rate
    3) Underpaid far below local averages

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on retaining quality employees. Treat the people who work "the floor" of the "Innocents" with dignity, honor, and respect. If there is a shift where the floor is short on personnel, come out of the office, and assist.

    I worked at Home of the Innocents full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Building relationships with the kids, free meals, use of company cars, cell phone & mileage reimbursement for certain positions, easy to move around the company.

    Cons

    NEVER enough staff. Hiring process is lengthy. Direc care staff get burned out quick.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten new hire time. More hands on training with new staff. Stop keeping on board for the sake of a warm body. Staff at the top of the foodchain need to help direct care staff in staffing crises.

    I worked at Home of the Innocents full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get great experience working here. Supervision is provided for therapists, with no requirement for reimbursement. Job hours are somewhat flexible, and you can make good money picking up extra shifts.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from employees. They have too many projects going and not enough follow-through. They don't respect the work that the staff does, and try to feed them lines about how we're "doing it for the kids" in order to justify paying less than we're worth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using poor financial management as an excuse to close programs and fire staff.

    Pros

    Working with the teen/adolescent population is extremely fulfilling whethers its helping them reunite with family or find a safe foster home, I really enjoyed this aspect.

    Cons

    Residential clinical team is non-supportive, has unprofessional attitude and assigns own workload to the team of clinical staff, to provide constructive feedback and adequate training tools. Clinicians hold the responsibility of 4+ roles and are only paid for one. Overall, this non-profit organization runs as a for profit company and often holds a higher value for quantity over quality of work and places monetary gain over ethical practices for the children who reside there.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that supervisors are doing their job properly, implement a structured training program for clinicians.

    "It's All Happening at the Home!"

    I have been working at Home of the Innocents full-time

    Pros

    The Home is a great place to work. From support staff to direct care workers to senior mamagement, everyone is treated like family. Wages are competitive and benefits are well above average. The staff do a great job working with some very behaviorally challenging and medically fragile kids.

    Cons

    Management has to wear many hats to get the overall job done. The population we serve can be very challenging behaviorally and medically.

    Advice to Management

    The new Paladina free clinic rocks!

    I have been working at Home of the Innocents (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No pros for me as an employee. The (underpaid) workers do take good care of the kids.

    Cons

    This place is a JOKE. The CEO and COO care more about potential donors than their employees. BE aware donors, if the donation is not marked for a specific program or child, it goes to their general fund for them to do whatever they feel like doing with it.
    The COO also declares positions that must have a degrees but she's sitting in her spot out of tenure without a degree herself. She often abuses her time by brushing her "hair" and tending to the office cat, that everyone must like or they can't work there. The 2nd floor is just a big gossip area about all of the employees. I can't believe the things I have heard on this floor. Upper management walks around with their noses in the air, not the friendly welcoming place as you'd expect, unless you're a potential donor. Work on this floor or volunteer for one month, I guarantee you will hear gossip and can point out the cliché's. I can't wait for new management. Hopefully for all the other employees as well, out with the old in with the new and maybe good things will happen for the staff there that truly care about the kids not the latest gossip..

    Advice to Management

    Upper management need to grow up and put the knives away. Learn some people skills with your employees. TREAT STAFF HOW YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED!! They are the reason you have your job, the kids are the reason they have a job. Set good examples, not by wasting the kids money on your overpaid salaries. Give 110% if you want the staff to give 110%.
