    Pros

    Great coworkers, that's about it

    Worst job I've ever had. Terrible pay. Fee for service Therapist asked to do an enormous amount of work I was actually paid to do. Management doesn't care and your treated like a number. They only care about money and productivity. Run for your life!

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

    Pros

    Experience , kids. Knowledge of how to implement, follow and execute behavior plans. Makes you appreciate what you thought to be a crappy childhood!

    Cons

    The staff gossip, make things up about new staff and are the ones getting appreciated. Consistency is key for these kids and it's not provided through staff or how about moving a kids room and not telling them. Way to precipitate crisis. ABA is commendable but doesn't deal with a whole person.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Promote a climate of professionals and stop moving everything everywhere. Also, the condition of the place is unsanitary.

    I worked at KidsPeace full-time

    Pros

    Feel you can do good there. Training was thorough.

    Cons

    What we learned in training was not followed through in field, causing dangerous situations, unethical standards and general inconsistency and chaos. The children's areas could be much improved.

    Advice to Management

    When hired as full time, follow through. When changes are made, every effort must be made offer offers promised. Also, the training with what actual occurs on the floor are not consistent at all creating chaos and animosity between staff and staff and client and staff. Treat employees as you would want to be treated.
