Child Development Aide (Former Employee) –  Cumberland, MDFebruary 5, 2019
The Family Center is a fun and calm environment. It is slow paced but there is still a lot of excitement. The staff is friendly and social and very inviting. A typical day consist of children development task, helping pregnant teens graduate from high school and fun trips for parents and their children.

Challenging
Advocate (Former Employee) –  Wisconsin Rapids, WINovember 24, 2018
If you are passionate about helping others and understand the complex dynamics of domestic abuse and/or sexual assault, this may be a great stepping-stone in your career.

Be aware of the lack of leadership, inability to show respect or empathy, dishonesty or lack of transparency, unrecognized strengths of staff, knowing the staff is key to the agencies success, lack of empowerment, wrapped up in the politics of the community rather than the needs/protection of its clients, and lack of collaboration within the agency
Pros
Flexible schedule, no accountability
Cons
No accountability, low wages, no health benefits, no self-care

Counselor (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 31, 2017
My position at The Family Center was my first exposure to the social work and mental health field. The work environment was collaborative and positive. I was advanced to an afterschool counselor with one of the Grant programs my direct supervisor got approved for students that had experienced abuse at home.
I also worked directly with donations for another program helping homeless families and low income populations in the school system.
Pros
paid counseling sessions.
Cons
administration changed.

Caring staff, great community
Clinical Psychologist (Current Employee) –  Falls Church, VADecember 18, 2017
One of the biggest clinical psychology private practices in the area -- certainly one of the few that still takes health insurance. Well-established, great history. Staff is comprised of genuinely good people. There is a mixture of seasoned clinical psychologists and residents earning their footing. The administrative team is also great. The work tends to be challenging yet rewarding. Great sense of community, and work-life balance.
Pros
co-workers are great; mission is helping people improve quality of life
Cons
work is challenging but rewarding

Great Starter job for someone out of college

This is a great place for someone fresh out of college that needs experience.
This is a very highly stressful job. The most enjoyable part about this job is its flexibility in scheduling. With a poor training system, you must be a self-starter otherwise this job isn't for you.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
No health benefits, retirement package

Although the job is alright, the benefits and hours aren't exactly the greatest. At the time, there were zero benefits other than a 10% discount on some items.
