Very stressful work environment.
Dependency Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Palm Beach County, FLMay 7, 2018
I enjoyed working at Children's Home Society of Florida, but the work load was excessive and unrealistic. Management has unrealistic expectations. Management at Program Director through to supervisor level were often inexperience, lack supervisory skills, not supportive of employees, like to cover their backs and shift responsibility. Moral was often low due to the lack of support/encouragement/
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
Excessive/unrealistic work load

Avoid this place
Case Management (Current Employee) –  FloridaMay 2, 2018
Senior leadership at corporate too detached from the real work being done. Leadership is retaliatory if you express your opinions or are not in agreement with changes.

CEO asks for input but doesnt really want to hear it....instead he is too caught up in his weekly emails.
Pros
Vacation hours
Cons

I loved my clients
Counselor (Current Employee) –  Pensacola, FLMarch 26, 2018
These people will stab you in the back the first chance they get and smile at you while they’re twisting the knife. I had a excellent employee evaluation, withdrew some money from my 403b, and next thing I knew I was being asked to resign.

A horrible place to live and many lives destroyed
child (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FloridaMarch 8, 2018
As a child living at the Jacksonville, Florida facility we children were housed and fed; that was about it. Many lives were destroyed because of the lack of love and caring for we children. Many children later became homeless, sent to prison, became drug attics, alcoholics or committed suicide.

Front lines care

Opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the foster care and court system. helping children directly is very awarding and also can be taxing emotionally. self-care is very important.

Great organization, poor management
program support (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLFebruary 1, 2018
The staff and mission of CHS are wonderful and the people who work there genuinely care about making the world a better place and are dedicated to doing a great job. However, the management lacks good communication, a cohesive vision, and does not set a good tone for the organization. Often one manager would ask you to do something and then another manager would contradict it. Very difficult and confusing to get straight what you were expected to do.
