    Pros

    You are able to help children that were in a neglectful or abused environment. The benefits and pay were good. You are able to create and manage your own schedule.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, overworked and burnout, stressful, wear and tear on your vehicle and not supported by your Supervisors(everyone is out for themselves). Workload and timeframes are unrealistic and working 7 days a week a minimum of 12 hours. Paperwork!
