    I have been working at Birch Family Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours paid time off.

    Cons

    Working with a miserable set of human beings! You would think working with little ones you would expect to see smiling faces, everyone is mean and rude! I am not even sure if they like children or if they just want a job with benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your workers/future workers properly. Cause it may be too late for the unionize ones to be ousted.
