    Pros

    An agency driven by its mission to protect children.

    Cons

    Financial Security - a large part of the agency is government funding so when funding changes it impacts the agency.

    I have been working at Children's Home + Aid

    Pros

    I worked as a case manager with a really great,professional team. CH&A always provided regular training for employess for free which was great. Flexibility in schedule. Good benefits,pto. I enjoyed reuniting families, completing adoptions etc. Gift cards for meeting certain standards.

    Cons

    Very little,if any room for advancement in this postion. There was constant renewal of standards to be met for case managers at unrealistic rates with case loads of 21 children (not including your responsibility to their bio parents, foster parents etc.). Not to mention peer review where you may have to correct something another case manager missed 6 month ago. Mileage reimbursment in my opinion was not worth it due to wear and tear on car that salary barely covered. lowest pay for this position out of any social service agency ive seen. Really get the burnt end of the stick whencase managers by far do the most work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic standards according to each caseload.
