Social Worker, CFSA - September 16, 2015
CFSA does good work - ensuring the safety of children and helping families help themselves. The work itself is rewarding and front line staff are almost all great. It's a large organization and it's wonderful to interact with other disciplines - nurses and lawyers, for example. The problem is upper management - they simply do not care in the slightest about their staff. They only care about benchmarks. They don't care how staff accomplish things, as long as the job gets done. They threaten staff and publically embarrass people. They apparently think this is good management style. A large number of people have left recently - with a pay cut - to get away from this. The problem isn't the clients or the work. It's the way the agency is run.
