    I worked at Center for Family Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The agency has Flexible work hours, there is room for upwards movement and good communication with administration. The agency has strong ties in the community and can be very affective in advocating for families.

    Cons

    The pay does not reflect the education nor the work the staff does. The work is rewarding spiritually, but the pay does not reflect the increase in housing cost as well as student loan payments. We risk our lives everyday entering homes to help others in need obtain resources they need such as shelter and food and at times we ourselves are lacking in basic needs. It's hard to advocate for higher education when you are in line with your clients at the board of social services seeking support.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay will keep staff who are loyal and dedicated to the agency and community.
