    Pros

    They promote from within, you get to do direct care work with children who need it, upper management cares about the staff

    Cons

    Irregular hours, high stress, no raises or bonuses, not enough training when you first enter the position

    Advice to Management

    Have a system for pay raises

    Pros

    MercyFirst has a great management team and a great staff. They are all very dedicated to their service of caring for children in need. The management team is also very caring of their staff. Their team approach encourages both clinical and non-clinical staff to work together to provide the best possible environment for the children that they serve.

    Cons

    As a not-for-profit agency, salaries are a bit below the industry average, but management makes every effort to provide reasonable compensation and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
