Worst Parts of the Job:

1. At times you are dealing with high pressure, volatile situations. There may be no roadmap for these situations. Grace under fire is necessary.
2. Prospective clients are calling during a terrible time of life, so they often have a lot of negative emotions that they unload on us.
3. Sometimes (rarely) caller dissatisfaction is unavoidable. Some people are in situations that will have bad outcomes no matter what we do. We can always make it better but not necessarily good. So, you will be in situations where you cannot make someone happy.


Best Parts of the Job:

1. We save and transform people’s lives. The work we do meaningfully helps or even rescues people. How much would you value another year with your parent before they die? How much would you value being able to see your child graduate high school? These are examples of what we are privileged to do for our clients.

2. Our crew is amazing. We care for each other. We laugh together. We cry together. We cannot overstate how fortunate we are to have a crew that is, not only highly skilled, but just good human beings.
