    "OK temporary job, after a while the workload piles on top of you"

    Dependency Case Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosflexible schedule, no supervisors over your shoulder,

    ConsHighly stressful, EXTREMLEY heavy case loads, little to no support from supervisors and program directors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow a little more appreciate for the backbone of your company i.e. DCM, Child Advocates, Social Workers. This company needs some SERIOUS organizational intervention!!! The turnover is so high in certain departments because there are too many expectations of one person, case load is too heavy and there is no support. There are a lot of flaws within this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avoid Children's Home Society - at any cost!!

    Dependency Case Manager (Former Employee)
    Brooksville, FL

    ProsThe co-workers are mostly nice; some are not nice.

    ConsThe constant micro-management, focus on statistics, lack of interest in working with families, poor service to families, lack of funding for services - yet money available for big salaries for top management, and bonuses for everyone. The cars are dangerous junk. The office is a dump. The office is filthy - bugs everywhere, filthy carpet, crumbling furniture, a kitchen that you wouldn't drink a glass of water in. What ever the contract holder wants is what they get - at the cost of children's safety, well-being and reunifying with their families. It is pathetic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the program and why you are in the field in the first place. Hire qualified people, not the first one that walks through the door. Examine your management's focus on statistics (used only to get bigger and better contracts). Drop the fake PR garbage. No one is buying it - least of all your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Highly unstable company, with a high level of turnover due to disconnected upper management.

    Family Team Coach (Former Employee)
    Inverness, FL

    ProsGood benefits, matching 401k contributions, ability to flex hours.

    ConsWorked there for 3 years saw 4 different programs completely cut, staff layoffs. This created a terrible work environment where last hired was the first fired irregardless of competency. Many individuals who have been there for a decade are working out of there scope of practice providing sub par, non-evidenced based services.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress inappropriate, inept staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible management

    Counselor III (Former Employee)
    Tallahassee, FL

    ProsRewarding work with the children and families. Nice facility. Company has potential, but overworked and under paid. Needs better supervisors!

    ConsTerrible management, supervisors do not care about lower level employees, poor support, no money. Very overworked. Company puts too much work on employees on an already stressful job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to all employees concerns, high turnover. Screen for better supervisors.

    Stress

    Dependency Case Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI cannot think of anything positive to say about this company.

    ConsWorking late, stress, they do not care about their employees. The company only cares about their numbers on state evaluations and would put their workers lives in danger to do well on a state ranking system. Avoid this job if you can, absolute worst job in the nation and poorly operated terrible compensation and no bonus

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider your employees' feelings, safety and family

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fair working experience. Ok as a stepping stone.

    YCCW (Former Employee)
    Melbourne, FL

    ProsYou can write your own daily schedule.

    ConsLower than industry average pay; Lack of Human Resource structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGather your resources to ensure your employees are treated fairly. There is no accountability for any wrong doing.

    Professional Unprofessional

    Dependency Case Manager (Former Employee)
    Panama City Beach, FL

    ProsExcellent Corporate office administration, great programs offered to the community, competitive salaries and benefits offered.

    ConsRegional Divisions of the company are not ran in a professional manner (which is the complete opposite of the corporate office) In one of their NWFL case management offices it was the norm for profanity to be used and staff's (unjust) disciplinary actions to be public knowledge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementResearch why you have a such a high turnover though termination and resignation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
