Work with at-risk-kids, can be reward but also frustrating

Pros

You get to work with kids and hopefully make a positive impact on their lives. Working at the site is interesting because of the kids interacting but it is also a rather grim place

Cons

First kid I worked with didn't listen to anything I said and was %100 defiant. Sometimes difficult to understand exactly where you fit in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up the main facility. That is my my main concern with Desert Hills up until this point just go

    Pros

    If you enjoy working with troubled kids, then there are a lot of opportunities for you to counsel them.

    Cons

    Support from management is almost non existent, always short staffed, staff are in potentially dangerous situations with little help and at times single staffed when they shouldn't be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The kids are the ones who are suffering. It isn't all about the money. That isn't why the Village was founded and it is on a downward spiral.

    Pros

    Patients, good employees who were at hospital before Acadia bought it out

    Cons

    They fire CEO's and CFO's, Clinical Directors, and therapists, faster than speed of light, employees at all levels are hired and set up to fail without proper orientation or support from leaders, and systems and processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you even have a strategic plan? The constant churn of employees is telling you a story are you listening? Manual systems where employees spend huge effort checking the work of vendors Who are paid to do the job? What is wrong with this I wonder if your leadership team even knows thousands wasted on constant employee churn
