OCS can be a great place to work
Family Reunification Worker (Former Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIOctober 19, 2017
OCS has employees who have great job satisfaction, a wonderful work/life balance, and fantastic supervisors. If you are lucky enough to be hired into one of their programs, you will love your job. That being said, there are also not so fantastic supervisors who do not allow for a good work/life balance and make the salary feel insufficient. Orchards is a wonderful agency who does great things for the communities that they serve, and the right supervisors also take great care of their employees.

Management Sucks
Social Worker (Former Employee) –  Southfield, MIAugust 12, 2017
If this company had better management, I think this place would be hard to beat in child welfare. They have some qualified people doing work but they also have some unqualified people doing work that makes others upset. They go out their way to upsetting others instead of getting down to the root of the problem, which is management. I think if they were a little more "human", the work place would be a lot less stressful for the workers
