    Cons

    Some of the cases our agency works with can be challenging. You have to really have a heart for helping other and resiliency at times, when some of the families you work with don't seem to want your help, but you know you still need to help them for their well-being and the well-being of their children.

    I worked at PromiseShip full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My team was awesome and very supportive! The schedule is soo flexible and lots of opportunities for promotions!

    Cons

    I didn’t always feel like my back was covered by the higher up past my supervisor. At times it felt like the job being done was more important than my safety.

    Advice to Management

    Really evaluate your employees mental health.
