    Pros

    Good benefits
    Flexible schedule, you can come and go from the office as needed, as long as you are seeing your clients and getting your documentation done.

    Cons

    The State expects way too much.
    There is too much work to be completed in 40 hours per week. But you get in some hot water at times if you work overtime.
    There is no real concern for the families you're working with. The only concern is the number of cases on your workload and how many cases are delinquent.
    You can be told to work at night or on Saturdays even when you have prior personal committments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with some respect, and show some appreciation for a job well done.
    The State needs to increase salaries of the workers, or hire more people so that the workers are not getting overwhelmed and overloaded with too many cases.

    I worked at Texas Department of Family and Protective Services

    Pros

    Occasionally you actually feel like you're helping someone. Once in a blue moon.

    Cons

    Stressful, no respect from colleagues, supervisors or clients. Always alone late at night at crazy hours in the worst neighborhoods, poor pay, poor support, too many cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on caseload size and system for assigning P!s
