    Pros

    It is a challenging job mentally and physically. You do get the chance to be a positive role model for some of these kids.

    Cons

    The kids are abusive, mean, and thieves. The upper admin is terrible. The CEO cares only for the money that state gives per kid that is housed there. This place will suck the life out of you.

    Advice to Management

    Clean the facility.

    I worked at Methodist Family Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The children, though a lot to handel.. their situation isn't their fault.

    Cons

    Pay is 12 buck.. .50 to 3.50 bucks added depending on the shift.
    Hire from within.. mainly people they like or is related to someone in cooperate office.
    Kids are used... this place brings in kids with severe disorders that we can't treat because Medicare gives them more cash.
    They only hire minorities for the physical positions...
    Stressful.. most of the kids are DHS.. they know the system.. if they don't like you all they have to do is makeup a tale and your out not to mention on the child maltreatment list ... seen whole shifts get fired

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, stop contracting D HS kids for easy cash, stop bringing in kids with severe issues we can't help... makes them worse
    Stop hiring corporate family members who don't know what they are doing

    Pros

    Being a positive adult role model for children.

    Cons

    Work load, short staffed, burnout, and lack of support from superiors.

    Advice to Management

    Close down all of your group homes and focus on making your inpatient facilities manageable. Stop going after numbers and actually love the kids placed in your care.

    I worked at Methodist Family Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Experience with youth with behavioral issues, resume filler
    , team effort on shifts... ish campus is large so you can get a lot of cardio in walking around

    Cons

    Treatment plan is ineffective and inconsistent, clients are unable to receive treatment because treatment plan and team are not equipped nor do they care- education system is a joke and teachers can not/ do not their jobs. Power hungry employees at all levels make for toxic environment and low morale among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Worry about quality of clients, not quantity of clients.

    I have been working at Methodist Family Health full-time

    Pros

    Pay rate is about 12 and up. Overnight (11-7) is the easiest shift (kids are asleep) 1st shift (7-3) is okay kids stay in class most of this shift 2nd shift (3-11) is the most active.

    Cons

    The patients can become a little scary but if you're dedicated and enjoy kids, your time here will be smooth.

    Advice to Management

    Nice Supervisors makes lower turn-over rate

    Pros

    Making a change in children's lives.
    Decent pay.
    Getting to love on children.

    Cons

    Horrible Management, Bad Management, Inconsistent Management.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the staff more. I felt that they were being too corporate, and not caring as much for the staff as they did the families they served. Seemed very Money-hungry. The more I learned about that company, the more I despised working there.

    Pros

    I loved the youth
    They were challenging but fun to work with

    Cons

    The supervision was not supportive he would tell you to do one thing then when it was done say he never said to do it. He would go behind your back and tell youth he would reward misbehavior to keep them from causing him trouble. When youth had a problem he didn't help unless it woul benefit him he was two face

    Advice to Management

    You really need to look into his claims he doesn't care for the youth. One current employee had some of her friends come to the home and threaten one of the youth because she does not like him when it was reported to the consultant who just fired one worker that the youth liked for one youths lies who wrote the lies down and bragged about the lies that he couldn't do anything about the employee bringing friends to the home to threaten the boy????

    I have been working at Methodist Family Health full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work-schedule allows for working around children's school schedules, doctor's appointments, etc.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible ... health insurance costs are high with many doctor's services not covered or at high co-pays, no holiday pay (must use PTO earned in advance). This is a non-profit organization and the main benefit is knowing the humanitarian services that are being provided. One would definitely not work there for the salary or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    There is entirely too much gossip and sharing of personal, private information within this small organization. When something happens in a person's life, it is automatically broadcast to the entire company. This is not entirely from a caring perspective. Nothing much remains secret between employees.

    I worked at Methodist Family Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in any environment dealing with maintaining eradicate and unexpected behavior of human beings will be challenging. Those who are seeking a challenging environment to improve and promote normal social skills will fare better than those only seeking employment. This job takes passion, creativity, and the ability to not take negative client interactions too serious. You are able to take off with the hours acquired. Coworkers are usually supportive in working as a team. Can change shifts when openings occur if in good standing.

    Cons

    Being unable to control the behavior of any given client. You have no idea how some of the clients will interact from day to day. However, their behavior is the purpose they are there to begin with. The clients should be allowed longer treatment instead of changing facilities throughout the state to create stability for those in need. I know this is not MFH decision or choice.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the environmental stress can be offset by hiring employees who are compatible dealing with clients. Create units that have little to no problems that utilizes less staff members so they can focus more on those requiring more attention. Staff members can rotate units to decrease burnout or offer more compensation to work on the unit needing more detail.
