A meaningful job but really unorganized and stressful
Teaching Specialist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 6, 2018
Overall the job is a meaningful position that needs to be filled by the community. The overall company has good intentions.
The hardest part of the job included the physical restraints. Communication is very unsatisfactory. One may be scheduled to work but then called off and this would happen unbeknownst to the employee on occasion. There isnt enough employees. The kids here need individualised learning.
The best part of the job included social interaction with kids. Co-workers were typically understanding of each other. There is free food sometimes. There is a satisfaction of making a difference.

The clients that live there spent 90% of their time tin the building which cased a lot of behaviors. I learned how to control my emotions when the clients tried to get under my skin. For the most part 2nd shift worked well together. the hardest part was trying to keep that one client under control that liked to antagonize the other clients.

Johnson County Liaison (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 5, 2018
This employer offered good benefits but had a very high turn over. It was difficult for employee to get acclimated to her clients because of high turn over one as never caught up and client base changed often.
Home Based Case Manager (Former Employee) – Connersville, IN – January 2, 2018
Very stressful client load and a lot of time working with families that did not work with you to meet goals set for them by DCS. Upper management was not very understanding when it came time for you as an employee to request time off.
very friendly and open environment with very supportive staff and supervisor

I found Children's Bureau in Whiteland to be a very open and friendly place to work. being the only male it was often funny and interesting. the company as a whole was very supportive and encouraging. They created a very diverse atmosphere for all staff and clients.

The hardest part of the job was not clinical because you have excellent clinical supervisors. The hardest part with the administrative supervisor who was hard to talk to. It was one of those job where you were constantly asked what is your five years plan when you are just trying to get through the week. I like a job where you feel comfortable telling your supervisor what's on your mind not complying with what is on theirs'.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 31, 2017
I enjoyed my daily responsibilities very much and also enjoyed my position as Conference Center Leasing agent as well and dealing with our clients. It was also great getting to know and working with the employees at the Bureau.
Slow Workplace Environment but Can Escalate Quickly
Teaching Specialist (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 6, 2017
Throughout the week, the environment is pretty boring because most of the children go to school offsite. Most of the day you are sitting and watching children and teaching based off a point sheet. The weekends are just as slow even with all the kids being present. There isn't much for them to do but to stay in the buildings except on Sundays when there is an outing. Staff can be flip floppy. Administration acts like they care, but to some degree, they don't. It's easy to pick up and make money (on second or third shift).
Therapist (Former Employee) – Office – September 24, 2017
They like to over talk the positives. Every time I turned around it seemed like some policy or rule was changing. Poor training. Management doesn't have your back. They make you excited about work expectations and then slowly start to change those as your position goes on.
40 hour work week, good benefits
Constant short/no notice on changes to job expectation, Tell you all the perks of the job and then slowly start to change that too, management doesn't support
