Horrible work environment, intimidating management, unfair workload, no employee satisfaction whatsoever
Family Reunification Specialist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 21, 2019
I can go on and on. All the staff in SAFEty programs are overworked and unappreciated. Most staff do not take break. The expectations are extremely unrealistic. Family Reunification Specialists are constantly targeted for "not doing what they are supposed to do" when there are a hundred things to be done in just eight hours and ninety nine are done, they will be yelled for one that couldn't be done. Management does not listen to the staff, make their own rules and can be intimidating at times. The stress level is so high that employees feel that the job will negatively impact their overall health. Constant burn outs lead to high turnover. There is no good amount of training. You have to learn by your mistake and beware when you make one mistake they will be all after you. Workload is excessive, especially during influxes and other times too. Management will never hear you and expect you to work like a super human. All shelters under SAFEty have terrible work environment. Management tells you to work according to priorities but there are so many priorities that one cannot complete all of them and it will be hard to even start tasks that may not have priority. Family reunification specialists also have to help with residence a lot and it impacts their goal but Management will not care. This company is very dysfunctional and needs help.
You get to witness great impacts in some vulnerable children's lives
terrible management, unjustifiable workload, very low employee morale
