Great experience with great people!
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – May 3, 2016
Any job done well in Child Welfare is going to be stressful. The mission of NFC is strengthening communities to ensure all Nebraska's children and families are healthy and thriving. That is no small feat, and the people at NFC work very hard each day, striving for excellence.
This work requires great support from co-workers and management. NFC is an environment focused on collaboration, building strong teams, and coaching talented leaders. There are numerous opportunities for professional development, both formal and informal. The agency also encourages team development so that co-workers can learn to support each other through challenges.
The people who work for NFC are driven and mission focused. It's an incredible place to work, whether you're just starting your career, looking to make a change, or advancing. You have to be ready to work hard, but there is support all around to learn to balance home and work and to organize the work to make your days more productive. There is also a mechanism to provide input and feedback into strategies that could improve the work environment for staff, given the stress they are under.
NFC is a place where you can go to work, find your support system, make a difference, and feel good about what you did when you go home for the night. The job will never be "complete", but everything you do will be important to someone. Not many places can say that.
Great benefits, flexibility, focus on team, value professional development
