Toxic Work Environment with Ineffective Management
FACs demands a significant amount of your time and commitment to a job that extremely demanding and workload that is consistently excessive with little workplace support.

A team environment is encouraged and there is a heavy reliance on peers for support as management is focused on the numbers and the statistics rather than outcomes for families.


Benefits are award standard and there is no overtime or compensation for the additional hours worked. If you work to your assigned work you're given more, if you work below it you're performance managed.


It can be a rewarding job in working with families but the office and department culture for the way they treat staff are insidious and disgusting, staff are considered expendable.


Which is why the department has ongoing recruitment.
Pros
Working with families for better outcomes
Cons
Ineffective management, lack of support by management, heavy caseloads, no compensation for additional time required
