Pros: training employees on various evidence based programs, evaluate multiple programs, conduct client and staff surveys
Cons: no room for advancement, no raises or bonuses, i had to learn how to do the job by myself by researching other agencies, journals, and colleagues.
I learned alot about Government, State, and Local grant requirements, objects, and how to write grants.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to get feedback from the supervisor or co-workers because this position was new to the agency.
I learned how to develop my own data base system and data analysis program to monitor, evaluate data quality.
