Manager of Document Services (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – October 12, 2013
My tenure with Nexus allowed for professional growth and advancement while providing management to a very skilled staff of 15 employees. Part of my growth was having the ability to contribute to problem resolution and implementation of best processes. On a daily basis I would collaborate with many departments to achieve a smooth workflow when adding new clients. The most enjoyable part of my position was the fact that is was a "natural" fit for me and I enjoyed the challenges along with the benefits.
sometimes the chain of command lines were blurred.
Prior case managet (Former Employee) – Onamia, MN – April 13, 2016
Burned our and had been asking for help with my issues and was told more about getting a reward to change work hours. Always seemed to be working with only on call for the weekend hours and no support.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Manteno, IL – April 1, 2016
First off, I was a teacher in the school. The principal doesn't care about the staff, listens only to the higher-ups, and as most people within the company, is only about the mighty dollar. Those kids there need specialized help, and the majority of them don't receive the proper mental care they need. Some really truly need to be institutionalized, but Nexus doesn't care. As long as DCFS is cutting them a check, they keep the kids there.
I was stressed out every day, never knowing what holds I'd have to do, which student would throw a punch, or what would set the kids off today, resulting in fights. Constant fights. The program I worked for had some of the worst students (behavior wise) and the program staff didn't care for their needs. It became a program staff-vs-school staff battle. Us against them, instead of a united front.
I learned a lot from the behavior specialists on how to handle various situations, and made some great friendships, but those were mostly due to us commiserating with one another.
If you love stress and having your adrenaline pumping constantly for little pay or gratitude, then this is the company for you.
Administration (Former Employee) – MN – October 12, 2015
Mission driven workforce - believe their efforts make a difference Some Managers are excellent mentors and enable their staff to excel and succeed There is ability to obtain additional training/education Health Benefits are above average Wages supposedly above norm for social services
Staff strive for team environment, Staff believe in services they provide
Heiarchy tends to stiffle staff voice, Work/Life Balance needs some effort
Principal Acquisition Represenative (Current Employee) – Toledo, OH – July 27, 2015
An average day consisted of encountering land owners in seeking a signed right of entry for survey. This is a FERC project. Co workers were pleasant and management was always striving to hire new agents with experience. The most challenging part of the assignment was owners opposing the project. However, I overcome the majority objections.
councleor (Former Employee) – onamia, mn – May 26, 2015
Was hired and during training saw improper process of handling youth was not used according to training and was shunned by team when brought up to management. Hours are not honored and very unprofessional with previously discussed advancements. Higher ups in other teams will reprimand trainees for not knowing what they are doing without the training for specific issue at hand. A very negative feeling towards each other within the system of workers. Turn over is very high making it a chaotic work environment.
Sprint Dedicated Construction Manager (Current Employee) – OH – May 21, 2015
We would start off with a Conference call, then head out to the field to follow up on the GC's making sure that they are on track with the requirements that the Vendor we're working for requires. after delivering parts or document's to the field techs I would send in a shift report by COB
I learned how to do COP's for the vendors that I work for also how to deal with the GC's that we employed
The management and my co workers we're easy to work with and more than happy to offer any help. I learned a lot from them.
Worrying about when the job is going to end what I'll be doing next?
Counselor (Former Employee) – Onamia, MN – March 26, 2015
Nexus operates several different types of in-patient and out-patient treatment centers. This particular location served in-patient juvenile offenders. Great career move for any criminal justice or social work majors.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Onarga – March 11, 2015
If you are good at walking on eggshells, stabbing people in the back and kissing up to incompetent management, you will do well here. EXTREMELY HIGH TURNOVER RATE. There are two groups of people that work here; people that have been there for 20 years and a revolving door of new employees. The management at this place is very threatened by any new ideas or competent employees. In order to succeed you have to keep your mouth shut. This is borderline criminal because the very population they deal with is at risk.
Business Development Manager, Fleet (Current Employee) – USA – January 19, 2015
Nexus is a contractor and I work from a home office. Working from a home office is not for everyone. Nexus (as would I) has expectations for its employees to deliver. If you get your work done from a home office, then get an office job...Nexus management will tell you the same. Again, I would tell you to do so as well.

Senior Counselor (Current Employee) – Manteno, IL – April 29, 2014
Sometimes I see my coworkers and the clients more than I see my own family. We are together so much that we call each other family. The hardest part of my job is learning a child's background history and understanding the trauma that led them to being placed with us. The most enjoyable part is seeing a client discharge successfully from IOA and going on with the rest of their life like a normal teenager. I've learned to never judge a book by its cover and to always have patience and be understanding.
networking, gaining knowledge through dcfs
no breaks most days, overwhelmed by the stress of the job
Unorganized, punitive management with poor nursing department at Woodbourne Nexus
Nurse (Former Employee) – Woodbourne Baltimore – March 27, 2014
Working with the clients can be very stressful and physically difficult. However, the work is rewarding when one child is successfully discharged. My co-workers are hard working and dedicated to the care of children with mental health and behavior problems. The management at Woodbourne nexus is unorganized, punitive and show a lot of favoritism towards some staff. The nursing department lacks professionalism, consistency in providing quality care to the clients and nurses with experience. There is no room for advancement, the pay and benefits are below other RTC'S in the region.
working with children who have been traumatized and is in treatment.
management and nursing department unorganized, lack professionalism and experience.
Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Austin,MN – March 14, 2014
You have to be a die hard individual to work there. Doing holds on children the majority of the time and trying to keep your staff the rest. I loved trying to help the children but trying to please the senior staff was impossible. I was so stressed out by the time I quit that it took me 6 months to get my body to stop shaking.
Assistant House Manager (Former Employee) – Burlington, MA – March 11, 2014
I learned more in my time working at this job than I have learned in my entire life. It was always enjoyable and a pleasure, management was amazing! Working for a small non-profit was the best way to start off in the DD field.
