"You are expected to save the world but not given the tools to do so. You are sent to the homes of children to assess their safety and well being but ultimately, your supervisor makes the calls and you are forced to go along with their decision even if it is not in the best interest of the children. Supervisors and management are not focused on the families; they typically just make decisions that will cover their butts in the event something happens."
