    Pros

    Fellow coworkers are great support. You will definitely need them through rough patches. Good case management experience, especially if just starting out. Average pay.

    Cons

    Worst management I've ever experienced. Very little support from upper management. Quick to throw you under the bus because frankly you are expendable. The turnover rate is extremely high. Upper management is only interested in hiring their pals, even if unqualified. It's amazing this company stays afloat. HR does not really care about your concerns. Work life balance is horrible as this type of work is consuming. Can burn you out quickly if you are not truly passionate about the work.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure they care to hear any.

    I have been working at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services, Inc full-time

    Pros

    Love my job but today was disappointed and offended that politics reared it's ugly head into an all staff email!!!!! Very unprofessional!

    Cons

    It was suggested that all staff, on the own personal email of course, give non-support to our President and ask us to sign a petition to support refugees from Muslim countries; they care more about the bottom dollar than about Americans being safe! So offended that my employer would do such a thing!

    Advice to Management

    Keep politics to yourself and not try to sway opinion and suggest signing a political petition or trying to make others believe what you believe, or what your agenda is, like the crooked media does!

    Pros

    The people you work with daily in the office are great and feels like family setting. The staff is very supportive of each other.

    Cons

    The expectations are much higher than what's described. The senior management team doesn't interact with the staff when they visit the offices.

    Advice to Management

    Look at providing opportunities to retain quality employees which can include benefits like off-site trainings and growth in other areas within county.
