    I have been working at KidsPeace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Health, Vision, and Dental. Education Department is extremely tight knit, and the supervisor is great. The kids, despite their issues, grow on you.

    Cons

    Teachers at KidsPeace do not get some of the benefits that are considered a given by most teachers. Education does not get the summer off, and there is no compensation for working the summers. There is also no retirement plan or scheduled pay increases.

    Pros

    Great place to work for as a stepping stone into the mental health field. A very physically and mentally demanding job, but worth it.

    Cons

    With all the responsibility, the pay is not that great.

    I have been working at KidsPeace full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are very good, you pay less, and get more than other employers. The employees who really care are very good at what they do to help the kids. Some good training. Tuition reimbursement. Great way to get started in mental health field.

    Cons

    Very few long-term employees. They say no raises in 8 years, and kids are getting more violent than when they first started working there. Morale can be low more often than not. Not a place to work for more than 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Not giving raises for so long sends message that something is very wrong with this place.

    I worked at KidsPeace full-time

    Pros

    Small offices which allow for personal community work, and tight knit relationships.

    Cons

    extremely poor pay and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management seemed clueless to the struggles entry level workers experience.

  8. "Very Interesting Experience"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Wonderful staff to work with, they were definitely the only reason I stayed as long as I did. Also, free lunch every day if you don't mind the same cafeteria meals the kids get.

    Cons

    I didn't get a break. No lunch break or specials break like in regular schools.


  9. "mental health tech II"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Good benefits but only if you are full time

    Cons

    does't treat every employee equally. Most people do nothing at the job all they do is sit around and don't help these kids at all.
