    Pros

    Excellent social workers with a lot of experience.

    Cons

    Depending where you work, you have have a good team but if you are in a clinic that only values how much money you make for them.
    After you leave they don't like to pay you for your vacation time and its a struggle to get answers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more intune with their workers.
