      It’s sad when management ruins a good job.

      Aug 12, 2021 - Child investigator in Naples, FL

      Pros

      The kids. Being able to help people that truly need the help. The insurance is good.

      Cons

      Management for Naples office is full of backstabbing, gossiping, micromanaging jerks. If you don’t want to get drunk with everyone you work with (yes, including your boss) you won’t be well received here. I worked 2 weeks straight, zero breaks, as a new hire. They continued to try and make me work until my 3rd week and told me to “suck it up” because they needed the help… even though I had taken a child away from their home during this time and had been in court and was running on FUMES from the lack of sleep. They argued with me about the hours that I worked and constantly shorted me on my checks. My mentor? He had only worked there for 3 months longer than myself and had no idea what he was doing, either. It was like the blind leading the blind. This job was absolutely insane. The actual job itself was great but management is the reason they have people quitting left and right.

      Great career starter

      Aug 27, 2021 - Operations Manager in Boca Raton, FL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Work life balance. Low stress. Easy to get foot in the door and gain some experience. They invest in you sending you to different classes and paying for certifications. Amazing benefits, cheap insurance, lots of paid time, sick time, floating holiday and 9 holidays. Tuition reimbursement. Great as entry level to put in resume and move to bigger and better things.

      Cons

      Hard to get anything done. Everyone needs to approve and review before moving forward. A lot of politics and bureaucracy. Low pay. Morale is usually pretty low, everyone looks miserable and they just do it because they have to, not many people look like they are passionate with what they do. Managing changes so often it’s hard to gain traction in culture change. Not a lot of room for growth.
