I worked at Family Preservation Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great co-workers, somewhat flexible schedule.

Cons

Working in unsafe conditions often going to homes that are dangerous and unsanitary. In-home and Mental Health Support required to use own car and paid mileage rate from early 1980's (.30 p/mile)- we were told that we were lucky to get this as it was NOT required although other agencies in the area pay .50-.55.5 cents per mile. Upper management staunch with communication problem. Uncooperative with a huge amount of work performed at home (which you are not compensated for). Company DOES NOT seem to care about clients and their welfare at all--only looking at profits:(

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are wonderful and supportive, noble work, good benefits, lots of down time in the summer, free continuing education online, able to make your own schedule and it can be flexible as need be

    Cons

    Pay is low and they continually decrease it, many barriers to actually doing counseling, tons of paperwork that is never ending, considerably company bureaucracy, long hours during the school year, very high and unreasonable productivity expectations, under lots of pressure from supervisors/managers to meet the unreasonable and unattainable productivity, productivity is tied too much to salary and most of the time productivity is out of the therapist's control, redundancy in paperwork

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to understand how difficult your employees' jobs are and what it's like to make such little money but having such an important job and an expensive Master's degree to pay off. Try to find a way to have a reasonable salary instead of low salary + commission; the stress in not being able to control our full salary is very difficult at times.
