I worked at Upbring full-time

Pros

This company provides excellent opportunities to work with children and adolescents most in need of your support. It's wonderful to meet so many foster children who are thriving in their home, despite having faced terrible situations in life. LSSS offers opportunities for personal and professional growth, as well.

Cons

It's not an easy job and is certainly not for someone who dislikes traveling for work. The one frustration I came across was a seemingly constant change in management of different departments. This made it difficult to know who to report to. I feel the pay could of been much higher, though this is a common trait in the social work field.

Advice to Management

I think it would be helpful to get to know your staff - no matter what their job title.

    Pros

    FSWs really do care about the children in their care. The retirement communities are taking good care of senior retirees.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about all of the lower paid workers. They do not manage by example but by instilling fear in the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the turnover - a lot of really good people have been leaving the agency. Morale is at an all time low,

    High turn over rate will continue until big changes are done.
