Staff is fantastic!
PR, Communications and Marketing Manger (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJuly 13, 2017
While the C-suite needs some help with interpersonal communications, the staff and other employees are first rate. There is a strategic plan in place but there is confusion about strategic actions needed. The job attitude changes daily.

Mental Health Counselor LISW and ODE (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHDecember 15, 2016
I loved working at the Childrens Home of Cincinnati. It was a great opportunity to work along with children and families and feeling that we made a difference in our community.

I enjoyed assisting families with the tools they needed to do parenting and assist their children in their development. At the school base job, I learned to collaborate effectively with school staff and achieve better outcomes for the children at the school level.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
in school offices are needed

Flexible supportive place to work
BHC therapist (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 24, 2016
The Childrens Home is supportive and offers a Great benefit package. Working in childhood mental health can be difficult work but it's great knowing you have an agency that trusts you and supports you when you need it. Other agencies I have worked for had toxic work environments and a lot of micro managing but at Childrens Home you are trusted to be independent and supervisory staff are truly dedicated to being sure that you take care of yourself too. The agency is flexible with time schedules based on position and even offers ten month position options.
Pros
Flexibility, great benefits, supportive
Cons
Work with families can be difficult, navigating school environments

Mental Health Therapist (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJuly 1, 2015
The Children's Home is a great agency to work for. Management is consistently trying to improve the employee experience by taking feedback from staff and making positive changes. Finding the right work/life balance is challenging when working in mental health, but the flexibility offered at the Children's Home helps keep things balanced. I've had many opportnities to develop my clinical skills while here.
Pros
Great co-workers, flexibility, constantly seeking improvement

kitchen Staff rude, treat you like one of the students
Good service worker (Former Employee) –  cincinnatiMarch 2, 2015
Ladies in the kitchen are rude. If you're not old like them, 60+, this Job is not fit for you! They talk to you like you are a student there. Too particular about small things that really have no relevance. Kids are very bad. Expect to get cussed out or see a fight, never a dull moment!
Pros
drive a golf cart lol
Cons
rude, outside in all weather

Be Warned!
Behavioral Specialist (Former Employee) –  CincinnatiOctober 12, 2014
If you are looking for long term stability and a good career based job make a U-TURN! This place does an excellent job of covering up what really goes on. This best thing about this place is the benefits and the CEO (she's always been cool). Most of the other upper management under CEO are power hungry and push their weight around to prove they can step on you whenever they want. If you are doing any direct care with clients here you will be treated decent at first (maybe for your first month), but then they will treat you like anything but a human being. They will hire a group of people just to fire them all when they are looking for a new class of people. The kids there are dangerous and out of control. Ask the local police how many times they have to come up there. Just about everyday! If that's not enough proof for you...well...good luck to you lol
Pros
Benefits and no weekend work
Cons
Upper management, pay, job security, culture

Managment is very bad
School Based - Behavioral Health Counselor (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHNovember 5, 2013
Management has been known to fire groups of people at a moments notice just to start fresh with a new manager and team. They talk a big game and make appearances to show that they are a top non profit to work for but they either fire or run out any employee that disagrees with they way things are done.
