Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The only positive thing that WAS in place was setting own hrs. I'm not sure it applies when you have to send your daily schedule to the office.

Cons

Inconsistency across the board Lack of direction & training No mileage pay Low pay Company's expectations are unrealistic Managements' attitude lowers morale The office is in Kernysville where there is a lack of transportation

Advice to Management

Develop a procedure manual for each individual office. Staff your office with people who want to work, not complain Outfit the office so it's welcoming- including appliances Ensure the office is CLEANED, stocked, and utilities: water, phones, and internet are in working order Have a computer system in place that is current and applicable to the job.

    I worked at Family Preservation Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, somewhat flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Working in unsafe conditions often going to homes that are dangerous and unsanitary. In-home and Mental Health Support required to use own car and paid mileage rate from early 1980's (.30 p/mile)- we were told that we were lucky to get this as it was NOT required although other agencies in the area pay .50-.55.5 cents per mile. Upper management staunch with communication problem. Uncooperative with a huge amount of work performed at home (which you are not compensated for). Company DOES NOT seem to care about clients and their welfare at all--only looking at profits:(

    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.
