      Pros

      Helping the kids feels rewarding. Good place to develop your skills working with kids, generally good coworkers, most people working there genuinely want to help. Nice campus.

      Cons

      Low pay for high risk work. Management is out of touch and in opposition to what workers need. Lots of turnover. Inconsistencies in what interventions staff are told to use.

      Love the mission, don't love the administration

      Pros

      I work with great, caring, funny, hard working, conscientious people in my department. Edgewood does great work with kids and families who would otherwise be lost in the system and end up on the streets or without mental health care. Moving to other positions is possible within the organization.

      Cons

      This type of non-profit is less likely to be funded than others, which means low pay - which then means poor worker retention, poor morale, and distrust between direct care staff and executive management. As anywhere there are great, caring managers and there are managers with no soul who don't understand work/life balance.

      Not great from mental health

      Pros

      Flexible, can have good trainings.

      Cons

      Low pay, only OK benefits. Work/life balance is less valued than other non-profits. Poor supervision/program management due to lack of retention. Bleeding both upper level management and general (admin/hr) positions, Used to focus more on cultural humility but that's less important now.
