      Pros

      I loved working with MDHHS because the people i've dealth with were very respectful. I also worked directly with seniors so it was my pleasure to be a helping hand to someone in need. You also get to divide the amount of hours as you like, with the agreement from the person you'll be helping, very flexible.

      Cons

      There wasn't really anything bad.

      Do not work here if doing child welfare

      May 12, 2021 - Foster Care Social Worker in Detroit, MI

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, benefits and great coworkers

      Cons

      Where do I start? Expectations are ridiculous, get blamed for problems and held accountable for others problems, court is stressful, managers are generally idiots who micromanage the living hell out of you, and the paperwork is overwhelming and relentless. I did it for almost 5 years and finally just quit with no back up plan because I couldn’t take the stress anymore. Do not work in child welfare unless you want to be put on anti depressants. Many coworkers feel similarly to me and have also quit...don’t do it
