    I worked at Methodist Family Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in any environment dealing with maintaining eradicate and unexpected behavior of human beings will be challenging. Those who are seeking a challenging environment to improve and promote normal social skills will fare better than those only seeking employment. This job takes passion, creativity, and the ability to not take negative client interactions too serious. You are able to take off with the hours acquired. Coworkers are usually supportive in working as a team. Can change shifts when openings occur if in good standing.

    Cons

    Being unable to control the behavior of any given client. You have no idea how some of the clients will interact from day to day. However, their behavior is the purpose they are there to begin with. The clients should be allowed longer treatment instead of changing facilities throughout the state to create stability for those in need. I know this is not MFH decision or choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the environmental stress can be offset by hiring employees who are compatible dealing with clients. Create units that have little to no problems that utilizes less staff members so they can focus more on those requiring more attention. Staff members can rotate units to decrease burnout or offer more compensation to work on the unit needing more detail.

    I worked at Methodist Family Health

    Pros

    Working with my spouse is awesome!
    No commuting to work
    No rent or utilities to pay
    Good insurance
    Decent pay

    Cons

    Almost impossible to get away from work
    Stress on family greater than stress from job
    Tension between our kids and foster kids
    Frustration with management decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen carefully to your house parents! They need more downtime. 40 hours a week sounds like plenty, but we still have to work over 120 hours on top of that! It's very claustrophobic living in the home with the clients, and it's easy to get attached and frustrated by the children. It might help to have more alternates.-
