    Former Employee - Family Counselor/Therapist in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Children's Home + Aid full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many opportunities for professional development, salary incentives when you became licensed, and working with the clients was very rewarding.
    Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Management was very unprofessional, cliquish, and non supportive. I had issues with my direct supervisor and when I went her boss to share my concerns, she ignored them and immediately took my supervisor's side without investigating my claims.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managers/ coordinators should recieve supervisory training annually so that they can be effective leaders.

    I have been working at Children's Home + Aid full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, location, some talented staff

    Cons

    Career Ladder, unfair scheduling and pay practices. No respect. Terrible communication from management, stressful atmosphere, cliques, bullying, director won't listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff, especially their pay concerns and management policies. Use common sense, be fair. Reexamine staff attendance. Many salaried employees take advantage and do not pull their weight.
