Positive atmosphere in the agency but job is a burnout.
Case Planner/Preventive Services (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 26, 2017
A typical day at work is usually punching in logging in all your cliental visits completed or attempted the day before. Writing a note based on all visits completed or attempted, referring client to services contacting clients to complete home visits or at times office visits. The child must also be seen so school visits are required if child is not home. Monitoring their progress in services. Contacting the children's' schools or completing home visit, or daycare visits if the child has not yet been seen. Recording every interaction made with client, or clients children, or outside agencies/schools/daycares. Recording info by typing a progress note. Completing multiple Assessment forms for the families.

Everyone in the job usually stays positive it can get a little loud once in a while but generally calm. Everyone is pleasant to one another.
Pros
You're helping people. Employees stay positive, friendly. Everyone helps each other out with resources.
Cons
Its a burnout, very demanding as far as what's required, and what a case planner is exposed to.

An environment where you take pride in your job. I learned patience and how to deal with stressful situations. The most enjoyable part was making sure the children were well taken care off.

disorganized, stressful and unfair
Employee (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYApril 15, 2017
The company doesn't protect its employees. Instead of having investigations on complaints they just fire you. Taking lunch is not an option in the department I worked in. Turnover is high and staff moral is low.
Pros
health and dental insurance are good but cost is slightly high
Cons
job security is low

Mental Health Clinician- Bonding Links Clinic (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJuly 12, 2014
The most enjoyable part of the job is watching families that have completed their treatment be reunited.

It is a highly fast paced and stressful environment where one has to work with multiple systems to provide necessary care and after care for children in foster care.

Fun summer days with 7-14 year old kids.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJuly 1, 2013
Most of the time the kids will just have fun and lay back and watch a movie, or they will be making bracelets. It's amazing how in summer camps people really get to know each other and get so close over the short period of time.
