    Pros

    Wonderful staff, Great Supervisor, low turn over (you are lucky if there is a spot available!), wonderful families. Just an amazing place.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any. It can get overwhelming when there are a lot of cases, but the job and the people who you work with, make up for that. I only left because I had to--my husband is in the military and we were being stationed some place else.

    Advice to Management

    None!

  2. very bad pay, dirty, messy situations nice coworkers, good non profit, no company growth

    Pros

    Supervisors are really nice and so are the employees. They are very understanding. Great if you are a student or have another job.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great. I felt there wasn't much room for growth. There are many positions within that you can transfer to, but sometimes that requires a pay cut to an already low pay.

    Pros

    The client are sometimes very kind.

    Cons

    Low pay for the job we do.
    Management chooses the sides of senior employees even if they are wrong.
    They allow you to be in a hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get new professional Assistant team leaders and personal assistants.

    The office staff is extremely respectful of direct care workers. It makes a world of difference. When a person feels appreciated in their job

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and challenging. Working in foster care can create hostile environments (I've worked in many of those in the past). But overall, the staff here keep their cool and remain respectful of each other despite differences in opinions around client needs or service delivery.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a lot of room for advancement, annual salary increases of any kind are not a given.
