    Pros

    Great benefits, 9% 401k match, Great vacation time, great sick time.

    How well you like your job is connected to your chain of command. I am extremely lucky to have great leadership. It's not like that elsewhere.

    Pros

    The pros of this job is fair pay and excellent benefits. Because of the union the pay is better than anywhere else locally, especially if you only have a BSW. If you have an MSW, it's still the best in terms of public/nonprofit agencies. You will get to the top pay tier within 5 years automatically, not based on performance. For CPS workers, the flexibility of scheduling and using flex time for personal appointments is a great perk, You will not be micromanaged if you meet all of the deadlines and due dates (though doing that is not always easy, but worth it to avoid micromanaging).

    Cons

    The top down pressures to perform at a constantly faster pace, with more work without any real support is what causes the burn out more so then the difficult work with clients. The system is not set up to support workers (so it's not a problem of individual bad managers, as much as it's a systemic problem) and it's not a place where you can thrive long-term, either professionally or personally. If you are okay working a job with no real appreciation or support from administration, but good pay/benefits you may like it here.
