I have been working at EMQ FamiliesFirst full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The staff that are providing the work to the children and families are highly qualified and do a lot of good work out in the community. The staff respect each other and work well colloborating with one another.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations and responsibilities for direct service staff. The strength based philosophy does not apply to the employees.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees who are providing the work and implement strategies to support staff to prevent good employees from leaving.

    I worked at EMQ FamiliesFirst full-time

    Pros

    EMQ used to be a fantastic place to work with a great reputation...under Jerry Doyle. The pros are that they offer a great benefits package which helps bolster the poor salaries they offer.

    Cons

    EMQ has gone downhill under the new leadership. Their "whatever it takes" is at the stake of their employees who work any and all hours to provide service to families. Although they claim to promote "work-life balance", they really don't care and place impossible demands upon their employees. They have also frozen salaries for a few years now giving employees little incentive to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and be transparent with them.
