    I have been working at KVC Health Systems full-time

    Pros

    I took a leap and joined the KVC Nebraska team and I could not be happier. KVC NE lives the agency values in working with adults, youth and families in Nebraska. KVC is innovative and truly working to better the lives of Nebraskans. KVC has a family like feel and strives to create a safe, honest and supportive work environment. Social work is hard, and no one is going to "get rich" doing this work. KVC provides competitive pay while also providing many "non financial" perks, such as flexible schedules and use of technology to lighten to paperwork portion of this work. KVC is awesome - highly recommend joining this incredible team of professionals.

    Cons

    This work is hard, so while not a con to this agency it is important to be prepared for this.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

    I have been working at KVC Health Systems full-time

    Pros

    Working with kids, working from home, company car provided

    Cons

    Low hours, work everyday, no guaranteed days off, not guaranteed 40 hours

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to listen to your employees, when they get frustrated about low hours and missing pay, hear them out, don't just interrupt and threaten to fire them for speaking. A "meeting" should be more than you expecting an employee to agree with whatever you say. Something has been going on long enough for the employee to reach the level of frustration and the only way to fix that is to listen to them. When they are frustrated and speak up, you definitely don't insinuate that they will start abusing children by the way they are talking to a supervisor in the meeting.

    I have been working at KVC Health Systems full-time

    Pros

    Work the third shift you can sleep all the supervisors do so its no big deal. Oh, and if you forget something just use the kids stuff while they are sleeping. Supervisors do.

    Cons

    Unorganized, no accessible employee handbook, if you don't want to do an assignment just threaten to walk out and you won't have to do it. Dirty. 7-11 bathrooms are cleaner. Ghetto work environment. Kids are not held accountable for physical attacks on staff. Management is very young and unexperienced and untrustworthy. DANGEROUS work environment. 75 % of staff is unprofessional. Don't worry about following the dress code. People come in with wave caps on, flip flops, and yoga pants. Really its a free for all that gives you a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You are just one small step from a death of a patient or a staff member.

    Pros

    Great company, requires attention to detail dealing with children and parents / foster parents. Supervision is very good, can get time off if needed with notice.

    Cons

    Work load sometimes overwhelming, but rewarding. Pay increased this year but could be better. Need better health plan.

    Advice to Management

    Better health plan and a step plan for longevity pay.

    Pros

    They concept behind the company is well meant.

    Cons

    High turn over rate. The rules are up for interpretation. They vary drastically from employee to employee due to lack of proper training. Not enough caseworkers to manage the caseloads. I still have not received my transportation check for the mileage I added to my vehicle while working there.

    Advice to Management

    A thorough look at what is going on in the division I was unfortunate enough to have been employed with.
