    I worked at Children's Home + Aid (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I met some really great people whom I will stay friends with

    Cons

    Nepotism. Revolving door positions. Incredibly high turnover rate. Manipulation from upper management. Care more about numbers than families.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire supervisors who have never done case management. Don't overwork your managers. Don't promise things you can't deliver.
