    Meaningful job, not enough pay

    May 17, 2020 - Military Family Life Counselor in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work itself is meaningful and enjoyable, great deal of autonomy, somewhat depends on individual rotational placement

    Cons

    Pay does not compensate fairly with regard to geographic location/cost of living, years of experience, or individual skill level. It is a flat structure, where everyone is paid equal regardless of performance.

    School MFLC

    Dec 14, 2019 - Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC) 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    School schedule/calendar year, school administration, faculty and staff can be awesome to work with. Working with school-aged children can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    You only get paid during the school year (no pay/work over summer). Organization lies about amount of pay you receive, limits PTO accrual to 10 days per calendar year, requires MFLC's to meet performance metrics, and only provides a HDHP as a medical plan option.

    Intrinsic Reward

    Pros

    The opportunity to support those serving our country. Fantastic supervisor, but her hands are tied ( she's to professional to ever say that though).

    Cons

    The company does not care about the employees. When hired they mislead you into thinking you will have a full time position all year. The health insurance is horrible. If you have a question about your health insurance there is no human resources, but health advocate who often do not know the answer. They have to ask VERN, the computer program and then wait to get an email response. So it takes days to get basic information. But it gets better. If your question is complex this could go on for days to weeks back and forth. No one will call you from Magellan human resources.
