- Cabinet for Health and Family Services19.Mar 2019
Overall a good experience, one which has shaped my life.
Suggestions for improvement
- It would be good to have more opportunities for training, even after having been with the agency for many years. Often the public and the agency are looking for someone to blame when something goes wrong. It would be good to feel supported, rather than targeted when in a crisis.
What I like about the company
Working for the agency allows me to give back to the community and help those in need. Although the work is sometimes emotionally draining, it is absolutely good to know we are helping the less fortunate and those who are at risk of abuse or neglect. I have had the opportunity to travel and network during training sessions. I have been challenged and offered the opportunity to utilize the skills I have learned over the years.
What I dislike about the company
Working in the field is very difficult and carries with it some risk of physical harm and terrible secondary trauma related to the things workers are exposed to. Although current policies cite the need for support services, they are seldom utilized to help workers cope. Compared to the private sector, the pay scale is quite a bit lower.
