Advice to Senior Management – Training of new employees should have a higher importance.

I worked at Four Oaks of Iowa
Pros – Opens your eyes to the social services in the area.
If you want to be a babysitter for parents and a taxi for their kids you might like this job.
Cons – Lack of support from supervisors
Rude and unprofessional supervisors
When I asked for support on what to do for one family I was instructed that the mother was a druggie always would be there was nothing I could do and to just supervise the visits because she was never going to get her kids back.
Advice to Senior Management – Please hire some managers who actually care about their employees and the people they serve. I know there is a high turnover for this position, please look at the supervisors to find your reason why.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Four Oaks of Iowa as an intern
Pros – The Company is doing great at trying to change things a trauma informed care. T
Cons – Supervisors do not support their employees. Employees are discouraged a lot and they do not get a lot of feedback on the progress that they are making. When their is a problem and an employee goes above that co worker it can cause a lot of issues. There are supervisors who encourage negative talk to both clients and employees
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your employees and make sure that your employees and clients are not being bullied by other staff.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
