Benefits with the City of Denver were great. Management needs to be revised.
Pros: flexibility in schedules and flex time.
Cons: stress and trauma
A typical day at work was never the same. There were court hearings to attend at times for over 5 hours and as a worker it was expected that you attended these and at times deal with emergency situations (ie allegations of abuse/neglect, medical emergencies, etc). I learned that I can deal with high stress situations. I loved my co-workers in my team and got along with mostly everyone within my division. I was cordial with co-workers. The hardest part of my job, I must admit is having to remove children from their homes. The most enjoyable part of my job was returning children home. Even though, having to find an adoptive home for children, when it was in his best interest, it was very satisfying witnessing and being part of a successful match and adoption for a child!
