    I have been working at Family Preservation Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
