Major turn over rate

FSW (Former Employee)
Amarillo, TX

I worked at Lutheran Social Services of the South full-time for more than a year

ProsPopular name among foster agencies.

ConsManagement refuses to listen to staff. This is a dog eat dog agency, don't let the name fool you!! History of violations....outlook for company not good!

Advice to Senior ManagementHigh turn over rate will continue until big changes are done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Claims it is mission-driven but not really.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lutheran Social Services of the South

ProsFSWs really do care about the children in their care. The retirement communities are taking good care of senior retirees.

ConsUpper management does not care about all of the lower paid workers. They do not manage by example but by instilling fear in the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the turnover - a lot of really good people have been leaving the agency. Morale is at an all time low,

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

This agency is driven by money alone.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Lutheran Social Services of the South full-time for more than a year

ProsThere are no positives about working for this agency.

ConsThis agency is driven by individuals solely interested in their own careers and making money for the agency. There are very few individuals working here who are actually interested in making a difference for children. This agency threatens to fire their employees daily and rules by fear. Upper management back bites, talks about others in a negative fashion, and looks out only for themselves.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be in your best interest to support the people who work for you, those who are actually working with the families and the children.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
