    Pros

    Get to work with kids and make flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Absolutely unorganized from top to bottom. People are constantly having issues with getting paid and you have to check your own pay every pay period. None of the higher ups take responsibility for their mistakes and it gets thrown onto the other workers. Never in my life have I worked somewhere where the supervisors and directors actually yell at people like they're children. It is horribly organized and people quit the first chance they get. Half of the workers are extremely lazy and never complete what's required of them which makes your job that much more difficult. Such an embarrassment of an agency.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and hold yourselves accountable for all of the issues that happen. This place is going to fail at the rate it's going. Never seen a more unorganized agency from every aspect.

    I worked at SCO Family of Services full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are pretty awesome to work with.

    Cons

    Upper Management creates a hostile environment. Nepotism is obvious. Push numbers to exhaustion.

    Advice to Management

    Value and invest more in your employees. Stop being so obvious about the thing you care about most, numbers... at least learn how to fake it. Sad.

    Pros

    People on the ground work hard and legitimately care about those being served.

    Cons

    Pay does not match up, as people at the top seem to hog it up due to bad management maybe?

    Advice to Management

    Get it together, give your workers the pay and benefits they really deserve. Then maybe you won't see so much turnover.
