    I have been working at Maryville Academy full-time (More than 10 years)

    I worked at Maryville Academy full-time

    Pros

    The people who work here are generally very caring and do want to help the kids, this is a nonprofit psych healthcare facility.

    Cons

    The company has no money, and barely pays it real workers. Working with problem kids can be dangerous if you work with them directly. Not enough support for those workers.

    Advice to Management

    Find more sources of revenue that is reliable and helps the community. There are other needs besides psych healthcare that can be done.

    I worked at Maryville Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were the best part of the job

    Cons

    Supervisor was barely ever in the home. Also they seem to think that supervising the home via camera is an acceptable substitute. Management loved to watch the camera, while they spent the shift hanging out in the administration building eating and then leaving for the day. No communication with the homes to let us know that they were leaving. In the entire time I worked there, I never had supervision

    Advice to Management

    It is disrespectful to only supervise via camera.. Schedule your meetings for times when the clients are not home so you are available for the staff. People leave because of management, not the kids. You will never gain competent, reliable staff, if you do not nurture your staff.
