    Positive Outlook

    I worked at BCFS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is very growth oriented and is opening new offices, programs, and positions all the time. They are very flexible and family oriented so it is easy to flex your time out for sick children, doctor's appointments, or other necessary errands. Their pay is competitive for the non-profit sector.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to argue a raise in some departments. They bring you in at a fairly decent starting salary, but don't always offer annual raises. Even when they do, it is not much. The job tends to favor certain programs/departments over others, and those are the ones with higher salaries and newer equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying equal attention to all program areas. I strongly believe that is why turnover can be so high at times. Annual raises/bonuses are coveted by staff....they have the money, so don't be cheap!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at BCFS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    some supervisors are flexible and understanding pay is average

    Cons

    Power driven administrators, no staff evaluation to offer feedback or professional growth. No raises, unfair pay schedule. Egotistic leaders are almost worshiped and you disagree you better keep it to yourself or you will be leaving soon. There is a culture of fear and intimidation. People won't show it and all pretend because we all had to bring the bacon home.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, get your hands dirty with the rest of the people in the field. Get off your high horse. Pay decent salaries. Cut Kevin's salary in at lest 40% he is overpaid. Dissolve layers of administration, there is no need for so many layers is a constant flow of funds that could be better invested. When possitions become available dont appoint people, allow other to compete and have a diverse body of people interviewing. People are hand picked for the wrong reasons!

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at BCFS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule for some. Non-profit organization.

    Cons

    President has inflated sense of self. The way things are structured, I'm not even entirely sure how much of a non-profit this organization is anymore. Very few donations and connection with San Antonio donors. No casual Fridays. No review system. No possibility for bonuses other than the VERY small Christmas "bonus" ($100). If you're seeing things only through the eyes of upper management and the president, things are going great. They are constantly gaining a larger budget and more connections to government agencies. If you view things from the typical employee, there are many problems within this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees the chance to advance as promised during interviews. Have yearly reviews with possibility for bonuses. Provide training and new ways to expand development of employees.

    I worked at BCFS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great coworkers. Many different programs designed to provided much needed services to children, youth, and families

    Cons

    Disorganized management that plays favorites, asks employees to frequently give more time and effort, neglecting their own home lives and families, and offers no thanks or compensation. While the agency is dedicated to doing all it can for its clients, that same attitude is not extended to the employees. A lot is done to put on a good face when administrators and funders come around, while the day to day is disorganized, inefficient, and led by managers who don't know how to work together.
