Pros

If you like to work with kids with behavioral issues, this is the perfect job.

~You have to answer to your boss as well as the principal of the school.
~You almost feel like a middle school babysitter.
~If your child (that has behavioral issues) gets in trouble, the principal will blame you.

    Current Employee - FPS Therapeutic Counselor in Passaic, NJ

    Pros

    Flexibility, environment, gained knowledge, benefits. FPS is a great work experience and you learn SO much.

    Cons

    exposure to dirt, filth, feces, bed bugs, and dangerous neighborhoods. The pay is low and does not compare to state agency salary although program is a state sponsored program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Putting yourself at risk and going into a family home without knowing the situations that can occur in the local area is dangerous. Better compensation is needed to justify spending long hours in unsatisfactory home conditions in unsafe neighborhoods.

    Former Employee - Counselor in Winchester, VA

    Pros

    co workers are generally great
    schedule is ok

    Cons

    The pay is WAY low for the amount of work that the employees are expected to do and for the level of education that is required.
    Management consists of arrogant queen bees that have no people skills and absolutely no clue of what's going on.
    The clients should come first, but all this company cares about is money, very much to the clients and employees disadvantage.
    Employees are pushed to work extra hours with the promise of extra pay, but then there are a million excuses as to why there is no extra pay in the end. The school counselors have the option to work during the summer, but are threatened to lose their job if they don't work. Pay during summer is just slightly above minimum wage (and this is for a master's level and in many cases licensed counselor)
    The company is losing clients and employees left and right, due to the fact that competitors provide better service and care. This company is not going to last much longer!
    Employees are not appreciated and treated like dirt. Management is unprofessional and looks down in a very degrading manner on anyone below their level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate your employees, they are the reason you are making the (undeserved) big bucks.
    Raise the pay and provide some decent benefits. Better yet, find a new job - in a different field and let someone competent do your job!!
