    I worked at Family Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Provides quality assistance to the denizens of the Quad Cities.

    Cons

    In the year and half I worked there I only occasionally felt professionally respected and never felt secure in my job. They

    Advice to Management

    Help you employees feel supported, supplied, and secure in their job. Please be more upfront with coming changes rather than springing a large restructuring. It creates a culture of fear for whats next and a lack of loyalty even when a team member is doing their job well.


  3. Company does good work, but should support employees more.

    Pros

    Good as an entry level position and an opportunity to get experience. Opportunity for advancement is limited, mainly due to the small size of the company.

    Cons

    Hours are long, pay very low. This is common for social work but more of an issue in this company. Senior management has been in place for many years and may have lost touch with how the long hours impact those starting in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Support those providing direct service and remember that a living wage is necessary to retain valuable staff members. Remember the cost of replacing workers is high, better to retain those you have.

    Pros

    Flexibilty in scheduling. Stated mission of community. Co-workers involved and supportive. Support staff very capable and always willing to help.

    Cons

    Lack of focus. Misguided sense of profit vs. service. Communications from management not always clear nor timely.

    Advice to Management

    Use your internal resources. Don't forget that your professional staff knows what they are doing. You hired them for their skills - disregarding their professional needs is self-defeating behavior.
