    Staff screams at the children

    Pros

    Getting to know the children and spending time with them.

    Cons

    Many of the staff at multiple locations scream at the children. It was like they cared more about authority and getting paid than the children. Staff also made fun of the children on multiple occasions. This is a systemic problem, as this behavior was exhibited by staff considered to be leaders. It was a nightmare and oftentimes would make the children act out, which they were blamed for. I hope someone sees this and something is done. I have also seen the same behavior of Lakeside community counselors. They have a very high turnover and are likely to hire anyone, which I think adds to the problem.

    Pros

    I loved the summer internship. The company does a great job preparing the interns for the hands on experience. I think the company does a great work and strives to maintain integrity within the work place.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges was dealing with unexpected changes in management and leadership. I believe this is normal for this particular profession because of the physical and emotional demands.
