    I have been working at Children’s Home Society of Florida full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A paycheck, being on your own during the day, there really is nothing else I am just writing this to get 20 words in

    Cons

    Micromanagement, unappreciated work, expectations to much. Slave labor, you are treated like you owe them something and you have been withholding it from them. Not the way someone who has a post-graduate degree should be treated

    I worked at Children’s Home Society of Florida full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My supervisor was great and you will love the kids and families that you work with. You get to take part in different trainings to increase your clinical skills. Free CEU's! Your coworkers will be extremely supportive. It's a reputable community agency.

    Cons

    Schools aren't very friendly at times. The pay is not competitive and even if you exceed your productivity consistently, you will not receive incentive pay. No resources for therapy supplies, so all therapists have to buy their own toys, etc, further reducing take-home pay. The health insurance is abysmal, both in premium cost and how much out of pocket each person has to pay. The current health insurance offered is equivalent...

    Advice to Management

    Develop a stronger support system for clinical staff, both emotionally, and financially. Negotiate for better health insurance that exceeds the minimal value standard and meets at minimum, the silver level of health insurance offered on the marketplace. Consider alternatives to the productivity requirements so clinicians aren't penalized for taking time to complete documentation and comply with required trainings. The...

    I have been working at Children’s Home Society of Florida full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to work with children and families. The clients make the job worth it.

    Cons

    Organization does not practice ethical standards - Recent plan to decrease pay (change to hourly pay) and increase "required" hours (47.5) to work in order to reveive original hired salary. All of your resources to engage with children or other clients are expected to come out of clinician's pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Follow an ethical standard to both protect your employees from burnout by following the new labor laws and respect their sacrifices. Recognize the purpose of the new labor laws and be a responsible employer!!! Also, the foundation of this organization is going to crash because many employees are willing to leave due to how management is handling this situation.
