    I worked at Texas Department of Family and Protective Services

    Pros

    Experience, Experience, Experience. You will also meet some great connections if you play your cards right. If you have a good supervisor who does not micro manage then this job provides flexibility to determine your own scheedule. Benefits are a plus.

    Cons

    If you have a bad supervisor this job is pure torture. I have had the experience of both worlds. I am not sure how I managed to stay under the bad supervisor without being fired/quitting, but eventually transferred out of that unit to a great supervisor. There is always going to be emotional ramifications for the child abuse that you witness. On call can be really rough because you manage multiple counties at a time. The pay is low, but if you consider all the pros it is worth it as a starter job. I was there for five years, but the turnover is really high...about a year so you inherit a lot of cases with poor work quality that you have to clean up. Make no mistake this job is not for the weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For much of the managment they are far removed from what is like on in the field. They like to pretend that they can relate, but in actuality; unless they are relatively new to supervision, their days in the field were totally different. Less policies, less cases, less crazy folks threatening you.
