    Pros

    Location is beautiful and staff are amazing for the most part. The potential is there for a great therapeutic environment.

    Cons

    The staff are mistreated by company and are not valued or rewarded, this thwarts any true therapeutic success for the children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the staff as you want the children to be treated, there will be a trickle down effect and the staff will stay much longer. Less money will be spent on training and the overall cost to run the facility will go down.

    I have been working at KidsPeace part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Growth opportunity, good training, some staff are very committed to enhancing their work environment and are very professional. I have had good managers and colleagues that work together very well.

    Cons

    There is no perfect place so I guess it depends on the reviewer. the only con I see is that sometimes they have to rely on individuals who are transient and not truly trying to become professionals in the field that they are working. this is always risky especially when working with children.

    Pros

    Give you purpose, great for psych/social work majors, good experience, exposes you to many things, interact with a wide variety of people, hands-on experience, receive a lot of training

    Cons

    Difficult situations, requires much patience, can be a very intense workplace, high turnover rate, administration is very flawed, horrible communication within the company, staff are not treated well by some higher-ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to be more organized and communicate more, treat staff more objectively, treat staff with more respect.
