I have been working at Detroit Institute for Children full-time (More than a year)
DIC has allowed me to simply enjoy my position as a school social worker so much more than I ever did in a district. There is TIME now to do my actual job; which of course is to serve the children. Now I am not buried in committees, meetings, constant behavior intervention and STRESS, which allows me to really focus on my caseload in a way I never could. DIC is not the first company I have worked for, but they are certainly the best. The management is always prompt, polite and supportive, the pay is competitive and the benefits are great. I love my job again!!
I cannot think of any!
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Detroit Institute for Children (Detroit, MI) in January 2012.
Very lengthy and communication not the best. Confusing to say the least and questions I asked were answered vaguely. Such as the budget, 6 months goal for fundraising etc.
