    Pros

    I worked as the office coordinator at BBBSPS and enjoyed it very much. Staff were friendly and supportive and work environment was casual. Good vacation package.

    Cons

    The turnover was high because most positions were entry-level social service positions. Once employees got experience they moved on to other positions.
