Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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.

    I have been working at Family Preservation Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are wonderful and supportive, noble work, good benefits, lots of down time in the summer, free continuing education online, able to make your own schedule and it can be flexible as need be

    Cons

    Pay is low and they continually decrease it, many barriers to actually doing counseling, tons of paperwork that is never ending, considerably company bureaucracy, long hours during the school year, very high and unreasonable productivity expectations, under lots of pressure from supervisors/managers to meet the unreasonable and unattainable productivity, productivity is tied too much to salary and most of the time productivity is out of the therapist's control, redundancy in paperwork

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to understand how difficult your employees' jobs are and what it's like to make such little money but having such an important job and an expensive Master's degree to pay off. Try to find a way to have a reasonable salary instead of low salary + commission; the stress in not being able to control our full salary is very difficult at times.
