    Agency with deficits

    I worked at Jewish Board of Family and Childrens Services

    Pros

    good training for social workers, fair benefits, excellent holiday allowance, good amount of vacation time

    Cons

    low salaries except for executives, few advancement options, lots of employee turnover, and an uncomfortable anti-white work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give more training for employees besides social workers, find more opportunities for employees to advance, make more competitive salaries, stop treating one race better than other people.

    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.
