Mental Health Therapist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 30, 2019
Children's Bureau LB has many positions to assist family's in improving their quality of life. The immediate work environment reflects the mission ALL 4 Kids - children and family are paramount and so are the employees. There are great benefits here and opportunities to complete your degree and even start an education.
Team Lead Supervisor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 29, 2018
Non profit is about the money which is more than 450 a day per child. Some of the children aren't a good fit and management is a click so good luck trying to advance if you are not "in". Ethics go out of the window if it comes to money.
Lots of turn over and clickish management makes it hard to be promoted CEO is nice but disconnected.
Milieu Assistant (Current Employee) – Lancaster, CA – November 21, 2018
I have worked at Children's Bureau for almost 3 years. I enjoy every bit of my work environment. We have great management and awesome colleagues. We are a tight little family that's is very welcoming to all that are new. I have a great supervisor who is very supportive and really knows how to be an asset to our team.
Teaching Specialist Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 24, 2018
Working for a great company and enjoyed my short stay as supervisor. Its a very rewarding and fulfilling job. My job ended due to raising the requirements of having a B A degree for the position and phasing out the supervisor positions at the Children's Bureau.

Make sure you know that this environment can be dangerous at times. Clients will throw objects & try to hurt staff. Management is wonderful in training & support. I would recommend working here if you have a passion helping kids in need and are strong enough to handle the emotions that come with it.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 17, 2018
Company is grossly understaffed, and unfortunately all third level managers are close and going no where. Don't think about questioning authority, or you can count on being reminded who is in charge. Job expectations and new rules come when convenient, management does not practice what they preach. Overall not worth the low pay and stress.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 15, 2018
Not a place where there is much room for growth. This is a great place to get your foot in the door and to build your resume if you are a recent graduate. This is also an amazing place to help give back to your community. However, it does a great job of taking care of outside people instead or internal employees.
Medical, vision, dental plans are offered for free or a reduced price.
No internal growth opportunities. Not a place that offers competitive pay.
Teaching Specialist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 20, 2018
Not a good place to work. If you have no ambition and willing to be used and talked to like an animal, this is the place for you. Management hires their family members and put them in supervisory positions. The teenagers are hard to handle and will cuss you out in a second. You have to remember some of these kids come from homes where they have been neglected or abused and do not know how to communicate without yelling cussing or throwing things. They also come with BEDBUGS. RUN
Challenging with training opportunities and some fun mixed in
Multi-Disciplinary Assessment Team Clinician (Current Employee) – Lancaster, CA – July 3, 2018
Working here is stressful, as is any therapy position. But there is a lot of support and encouragement and self-care is heavily encouraged. Each employee is warm and inviting and working with children and families is very rewarding.
Teaching Specialist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 22, 2018
The people in admin swear they care about their employees but they truly don’t. Staff have been attacked & spat on by the clients while admin is upstairs sipping cold lattes. They rarely come on the floor but when they do it’s because of drama. It’s all politics. Underpaid staff who tire themselves out due to all the behaviors & responsibilities loaded onto an already stressful day. I wouldn’t recommend anyone with a social life to work here due to all the trainings, meetings & workload.
Free food, awesome team players, free outings.
Everything outside the pros including the paycheck.
Communications Assistant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 5, 2018
I was hired on part time after interning here. A typical day at work was spent at a cubicle. I worked collaboratively with an understaffed team of only 3 people starting out and 4 people and 2 interns when I left. Workplace culture is pretty relaxed. We had a weekly team meeting and a weekly one on one meeting with the department director.
