Support from management

AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!

Gender Equality

Women have great career opportunites. In fact, probably greater opportunities than men, which is actually typical in the social services field.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I haven't seen many senior workers hired, but the senior workers who have been there for a while are treated very well.

Career Development

There is ZERO training. I was literally thrown into the position as a Case Planner with no prior experience. I was in awe that a company would do this for such an important position. There's also no real room for growth unless you've been with the company for years and years.

Overall compensation for your work

The company actually has pretty decent benefits. The PTO is awesome: 4 weeks vacation, 6 personal days and 8 sick days per year. In addition you get the major holidays and the Catholic Holydays off. However, the salary is very low for the work and the workload. Many other agencies offer more. I was recently made an offer for $8,000 more annually to do the same job.

Work-Life Balance

The work-life balance is awful. Going into the job, you understand that you may have to unexpectedly work long hours, but you would think that you are going to be compensated. The company refuses to pay overtime and forces you to take comp time. However, when it comes time to use that time, they don't allow you to freely do so. Then they will force you to change your schedule to avoid gaining the comp time because they don't want to give you days off; so now a job that you were supposed to be working 9-5 for, they force you to come in late and work 12-8 so that you don't gain the comp time.

Company Image

The image is great on the outside, but it does not reflect the reality. Employees generally don't have too many positive things to say.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company is much more welcoming to Hispanics than other races. While other races will be hired, it's predominantly Hispanic and Hispanics are typically promoted on a larger scale when promotions are made.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Higher pay. Additionally, invest in your employees. Train them! Lastly, show care and concern about them.

What I like about the company

I love the PTO. That will honestly be hard to get at any other company.

What I dislike about the company

They are not very caring about the employees. I lost my grandfather, who I took care of, and the first response wasn't one of condolences from my supervisor or director, but rather a response of "you need to make sure you have someone cover your work while you're out" and then "let me make sure you're actually entitled to days off for this".
