      Pros

      The families we worked with were wonderful

      Cons

      There was a lot of favortism. If they didn't like you, you were screwed. An employee was required to drive the client but wasn't really compensated for mileage. A person had to work more than 4 hours and, over a certain amount, in order to be reimbursed.
