    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Morrison Child and Family Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed the laid back environment with supportive coworkers along with generous schedule flexibility. The work with the families was rewarding and it was good work experience. The CEO is outstanding!

    Cons

    There is little to no room for career advancement. There are erratic budget and program cuts- I never felt my job was secure. Positions were cut to save money at the expense of overworking remaining staff. Some locations are in unsafe neighborhoods. The pay is insulting- seriously, most starting pay here is what HUD would classify as low income or very close to it, but the positions require bachelors or masters degrees...

    Advice to Management

    Rather than looking to the Sanctuary Model to address turn over issues, pay your staff an actual living wage. No one should have the qualifications that they're required to have at Morrison and be struggling to make ends meet.

    I worked at Morrison Child and Family Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They offered a lot of hours, thus could rack up a good amount of overtime. Nice people to work around, enjoyable culture.

    Cons

    At times they’d hire people that really didn’t help the team at all.

    Advice to Management

    Not much really, possibly hire better personnel.
