    I have been working at TFI Family Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy the people who work here. Child welfare (especially in Kansas nowadays) is an extremely difficult field to work in. Its important to have co-workers, sups and execs you like and can depend on. I think TFI tries to make employees feel appreciated.

    Cons

    the budget cuts to social services, the decisions and policies of KS government has made staying in this field difficult.

    I worked at TFI Family Services

    Pros

    Working for families and with a great team of social workers who cared for the children/families first. Health benefits were provided at minimal cost to employee.

    Cons

    The leadership team, with the exception of the past CEO, did not appreciate the input of those who were worked on the front line. They kept a very clear line of distinction between themselves and the rest of their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the trenches with your front-line workers, listen to them and when you are in their office location don't hold yourself as unreachable. Say hello. Care.

    Pros

    If you're married to a a upper management personnel you can be rude & take all the time off you want. If you don't question or a male upper management will treat you well. The COO & mid management try to do the right thing

    Cons

    Lack of communication, administration is inflexible, upper management is revengeful. Doesn't care about the children & families. Treats emloyees badly. Board is clueless. Fiscal problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall lack of leadership and lack of meaningful communication is destroying this organization. Stop trying to reinvent yourself every year & leave the arrogant attitude at the door.

    I worked at TFI Family Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the flexibility in my schedule. I was able to attend school full time while working full time. Not to mention if I needed to attend any appointments, my schedule was not an issue. The benefits were great as well. I enjoyed working with the people that I worked with. They were all well educated and understood our positions within the community.

    Cons

    Being a contractor to the state means that there are a lot of opinions of your job and the actions that you take. DCF micromanaged the agency.

    I have been working at TFI Family Services

    Pros

    Cheap benefits;
    4 weeks of paid "personal time" (both vacation time & sick leave rolled together);
    Unused personal time rolls over, not use-it-or-lose-it;
    Quarterly "fun" meetings for some departments;
    Yearly longevity bonus ($100/year of employment).

    Cons

    Some departments are very inflexible and unwilling to approve time off. Pay raises are capped at 2% per year. There is a generally high stress level within the office. Most employees don't seem to take pride in the work they do and put forth the minimal effort required. Poor morale in some departments. Many departments and understaffed and there is a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to offer your employees more flexible work schedules. Give your employees more reason to stay with TFI instead of being a "stepping stool" for better careers at better companies. Work to hire more in departments that are understaffed because of budget. Look for ways to cut waste in things like office supplies, building maintenance costs, etc. because many of those expenditures are exorbitant or entirely unnecessary.
