    I have been working at Washington State Department of Social and Health Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a "real" social work job- complete with caseloads, crying kids, yelling parents, and generally saving the world. If you're not prone to cynicism, this can be a great experience- lots of upward mobility after a few years, a great retirement plan, training opportunities, etc.

    Cons

    Office politics sometimes distract from the ultimate goals of child safety. The pay is decent but not amazing- contrary to popular opinion, we DON'T get bonuses for taking kids or adopting them out. Caseloads can get out of hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give social workers COLAs. Hire licensed MSW's to supervise other MSW's for licensing- it will coax many new grads to work for you for at least 3 years, and will increase the level of expertise in the units.
