Pros

Close to home and benefits package is ok.

Cons

Management is incompetent. Corporate office is so blind and people there do not know what is going on the branches. No communication with staff. Don't appriciate staff efforts and role. No salary increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a new director

    Current Employee - Family Service Specialist in Marion, IL (US)

    I have been working at Addus Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of the work can be scheduled flexible*
    Reimbursement for mileage
    If you need time off, you can usually always find someone to cover for you
    If you have a long trip away, you'll get most of your pay from driving

    Cons

    Sometimes due to kids being in school or parents working, visits cannot be changed
    Sometimes you can have as much work as you can keep up with, other times, you won't have much
    Dangerous work environment at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend better benefits- the benefits don't give justice for the work Family Service Specialists do. Poor paid vacation time and little to no incentives, other than to try and "fix" your clients that by in large don't care to change their lives, just get by enough to get their children back.

    I also think the dangerous aspect of the job needs to be addressed better. They have trainings every year, but I don't think that's enough. Often they put family service specialists - in situations with people who have been to jail or prison, are having their parent rights terminated, or are possibility abusing drugs/alcohol, or suffering from mental disorders. This was always a concern of mine. I was worried a parent would hurt me after one of his last visits with his child, and I was told nothing could be done about it.
