They have high standards allaround
Clinical Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 29, 2017
I worked for CUCS right out of school. each program has their own culture, but they also strive to have an agency wide culture of respect. The have very high standards for staff, but I think that's a good thing, because it means everyone works hard, not just a few people. Those high standards also mean that clients receive quality care and as a staff member you feel good about the work at the end of the day.
There is a lot of complaining about the health insurance, but honestly it's fine. And they have other good benefits. The employer contribution to retirement plans is low, but otherwise the benefits are above average for social services.
They put a lot of value on staff development. That said its very hard for someone without an MSW to move up past a certain level. But there are scholarships available and they support employees doing their internships at work.
good culture, nice benifits
have to move up if you don't have an MSW, 24/hour on-call hours in many roles
