Productive and non stop movement
Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHNovember 1, 2016
I work with troubled and autistic youth. I am managing behaviors a lot, but also teaching many of the kids how to read, count money, and independent living skills. I've learned in this field that you have to have a lot of patience and see eye to eye with your coworkers! The hardest part of the job is when you have a client being non compliant and disrupts the unit and next thing you know is all the clients now are being disruptive just from one client.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
No breaks

Need a tough heart
Adult professional support (Current Employee) –  Beachwood, OHSeptember 25, 2016
During the interview it was not expressed as how "hands on" the job would be. There is always a chance that someone could aggress on you. If you have a heart and like working with autistic individuals the job is good. Hours are long and it's very hard to get your schedule changed, the pay is low. Get pto after 6 months.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Aggressive patients, bad hours

Teacher (Former Employee) –  Shaker Heights, OHJune 10, 2016
Great work-life balance, generous benefits (but low pay), great family- like work culture, really place value on teachers and genuinely care about children and their families. Plenty of opportunity for professional development training. Overall, a great place to work!

low pay

Fun environment, great team
Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHApril 20, 2016
Nice entry into public service. Bellefaire takes advantage of new college graduates by offering a full-time position but at low rate of pay. Hard to get a schedule change and no raises unless union negotiated. Not a company I'd recommend trying to grow in, but rather a stepping stone to something better.

For the work being done, minimum of $15 per hour should be mandatory.
Pros
Free food, lots of vacation, benefits, great team
Cons
scheduling, communication with management is a hassle, low pay for work being done.

Residential Child Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHFebruary 16, 2016
The job is long and hard but can also be very rewarding from time to time. It is a great learning experience for individuals that want case management and working with trouble youth experience.

A diverse agency that offers a wealth of experience.
Shift Supervisor for Residential Treatment (Current Employee) –  University Heights, OHJanuary 12, 2015
First off, every day is different. Direct care workers of the Monarch Boarding academy serve clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ranging from ages 10 - 20. The responsibilities of the staff depend on the amount of guidance/assistance needed by the individual client. The management team reviews the clients' treatment plans with new hires, and then allows 1-2 weeks of shadowing/observation with the more "seasoned" staff prior to directly assigning staff to their clients.

Overall, the Monarch Boarding Academy offers a wealth of clinical experience to new applicants and is a great place for those seeking more exposure to behavioral interventions, crisis de-escalation/management, and collaboration between families and clinicians.
Pros
Excellent environment that fosters professional development.
Cons
Entry level positions have less desirable hours

Autism Youth Counselor
Autism Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Shaker Heights OhioJune 26, 2014
You need a really big heart to deal with this kind of environment. It was not made clear during the interview process how "hands on" we would need to be with the clients, especially if you find yourself placed with low-functioning children (without being asked what population you feel would work best for you). Pays very low for the work that is asked of you. Poor hours. However, there is opportunity for advancement if you can make if though their "initiation" of the counselor/child care worker positions.
Pros
Opportunity for Advancement
Cons
Poor pay, dangerous work, aggressive clients
