      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Fulton County DFCS full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Vacation time, paid holidays (12 annually). Most work occurs from the field and you're not stuck in the office all day. The ability to move up if you're interested

      Cons

      You have to create your own work/life balance. The work pace is really fast and you're performing more crisis management vs. real social work. The average work day is between 8-10 hours.

      Advice to Management

      Hire more people faster. Eliminate the 16-week on-boarding/training.

      I worked at Fulton County DFCS full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      No dull moments Cool co-workers Benefits Interesting cases Interesting clients Nice work space Company computer and phone You're helping others

      Cons

      Overwhelming case loads Lack of support from administrators Overworked Underpaid Favoritism Recidivism Unattainable requests from supervisors On call Unknowingly thrown into cases

      Advice to Management

      When this agency realizes that the way they overwhelm case managers is a momentous reason for faltering retention rates, nothing will ever change . Not even a raise can convince some of the employees to stay .
