    I have been working at Federation of Organizations full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Been with this agency for 10 years and can't imagine working anywhere else. Staff very cohesive despite challenging work. A lot of room for growth within the agency for those that demonstrate skill and desire for advancement. Agency is constantly expanding, opening up new programs and positions all the time.

    Cons

    Starting salary is not as much as it should be, but competitive with the field. People don't get into this field for the money and if that is their aim, they will not be satisfied. Agency rewards longevity with great time off.

    I worked at Federation of Organizations full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good stepping stone job. Nice people.

    Cons

    The more work you do the harder case load they will move you to.
    Some clients are so disrespectful (alcoholics/drug addicts) and the agency continues to give them money and help them despite the continued use of alcohol and drugs.

    Advice to Management

    Management should not overwhelm employees by pushing them with harder case loads.

    you are over worked and not compensated for your worth

    Pros

    Being able to help those in need...The consumers make the day go easier even though they have a metal diagnosis...They are very perceptive as well and know what staff members are really willing to help and those that are just collecting a check.

    Cons

    High turn over due to Management not knowing how to deal with the staff members that do not have a diagnosis. They tip toe around the staff with a diagnosis and expect those that are not diagnosed to do the work of three people. The staff is very clicky and back stabbing. There is no comradery among staff and management unless your are related or a friend of the family.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn how to deal appropriately with staff members that do not have a diagnosis. When there is a staff member that has stolen, caused conflicts, etc. more then once they need to be let go not coddled, diagnosis or not.

    To grow with the company and learn all aspects of what the job entails.
