      Great for gaining experience but not supportive enough for long term employment

      Jun 8, 2021 - Treatment Coordinator 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      These position is salaried and they cover some mileage. You aren’t stuck in the office all day due to the requirement of home visits. You get a work cell and laptop.

      Cons

      This position requires a lot of after hours work without over time or additional compensation. They claim to be Christian, yet offer very little support to employees, foster children, and families. They’re only concerned with money and the compliance. 7 day on call rotation is required without any training on how to handle the situations.

      Supportive environment.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Local supervisors are supportive and attentive, flexible work schedule, boots on the ground staff really care about helping families.

      Cons

      My view is that national and leadership felt very disconnected from what happens within some of the programs; priorities can be somewhat confusing (recognition vs. actually helping families).
