Pros

Very caring about your family. This agency cares about the personal needs of its employees. If you have a sick child, you are not left to feel guilty for taking off. Management cares about your personal well being.

Cons

The work load increases and the pay does not. Employees are expected to go above and beyond and we are not compensated for our efforts. Raises have not been given in over 4 years, but the workload increases. Many of the resources needed to complete our job is limited. You are expected to perform at a certain level, but there are so many things (computers, etc.) preventing you from delivering services at your best. Human Resources is horrible!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you see something isn't working, change the strategy. I've seen great employees leave that have dedicated many years with the agency. Not because they didn't like their job, but because they didn't feel appreciated. The larger CFS becomes, the less appreciated we feel. It becomes about everything else. The money spent on staff events would rather much be put in our pockets, especially since our salaries have not increased.

    Pros

    Helping clients and learning how to help clients while living in a residential program. Learning how to work with the system of child protective services.

    Cons

    Management is corrupted, within some programs. Favoritism is a large part of the program I was in. Communication is lacking and policies are as up to date as they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with staff. Instead of "weekly" meetings that happen once a month, make time to discuss things with staff. Policies should be updated and simplified.
