    I worked at Family Service Agency full-time

    Pros

    You get to set your own schedule

    Cons

    Management has no sense of direction - very unorganized - no formal training at all and they expect you to teach yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Dont get rid of your best office in terms of service and numbers. Listen and understand what Parent Aides need.

    I really enjoyed the people that I worked with at Family Service Agency. They were very kind and flexible with scheduling.

    Keep up the good work! You are a lovely example of what can be accomplished if people pull together and work toward a common goal.

    I worked at Family Service Agency full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Very nice work colleagues. The location of the building and parking availability is also a plus.

    Cons

    The wages could be increased. Sometimes newer technology and training could have been useful and made work more efficient.

    I worked at Family Service Agency full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    nice staff, flexible schedule, team building

    Cons

    no raises due to non profit struggles

    Advice to Management

    Work in some sort of bonus or raise every once in a while. 5 years with no increase is tough.

    Pros

    The people are all there for a variety of reasons, but what really impresses is their mutual goal of servicing the community.

    Cons

    There appears to be somewhat of a discrepancy between senior management and lower-level employees. Quite a high turnover rate reveals that perhaps the growth opportunities at this company are limited.

    Advice to Management

    There are many of you who care greatly about the status of the agency and resolving any issues. But there needs to be a little more cohesion when it comes to collective management.
