I worked at Family Preservation Services full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The branch I worked for in Verona, Va was wonderful. The camaraderie in the office really helped with some of the isolating feelings that could accompany the job. Can make your own schedule as long as you are meeting the hour requirements.

Cons

Job can feel isolating at times. Hour expectations were unreasonable and unattainable. Closer locations were promised but never came to fruition. So much paperwork, it was very difficult to separate work from personal life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advocate for employees to Corporate to help them understand better what it's like for each individual employee instead of just another number. Lighten the load that is put on supervisors so they will be more available for the in home counselors; especially since the counselors deal with many crisis situations.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    ~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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set guidelines for principals and counselors.

    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.
