Former Staff:

"Job Work/Life Balance Compensation/Benefits Job Security/Advancement Management Job Culture worst place i have ever worked registered nurse (Former Employee), residential unit July 13, 2014 Pros: working with and for the children Cons: overworked, mandatory overtime, poor management especially on the residential unit this job is the worst experience i ever had. the politics and poor management is ridicolous . great to work with the kids but desensitized management have run the hospital down. there is no consideration of staff and there is constant mandatory overtime or you get fired because they claim it is abandonment . they work their employees short staff until it becomes a safety issue with care of the patients. they lie about the bonus, read the fine print their aim is to not give as promised when you are hired. the schedule is very inflexible as they do the block scheduling system and force their employees to work every weekend instead of every other. it is a very unsafe environmnet and they have no regard for their employees . poor morale and spooky environment. a total waste of time to work for this company because they are used to high tunover as this is their culture therefore have no vested interest in their employees and or rentention incentives, you are replaceable/disposable .

Poor management, overworked employees, bad experience
Behavioral Counselor (Current Employee), New Kent, VA May 28, 2014
Pros: working with the kids
Cons: short staffing, overworked
I loved my job while I worked there - helping the kids made everything worthwhile. But the scheduling is awful. No one person does the scheduling, there are constantly holes in the schedule, and they don't care about short staffing the units. They will force you to stay in extra 8 hour shift for holes in the schedule they knew about weeks in advance. There's minimal job security. When there are lots of patients they'll overwork you and keep you late at work in a heartbeat. When there aren't many patients and the census is low, they fire for very small reasons.

Overall, bad experience. They don't care that you're tired because they kept you last night at work. They'll force you to work overtime or tell you to just not come back."
