Medical Receptionist/Front Desk (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 20, 2016
The best thing there is the clients and therapist, some staff members. No benefits, no vacation or sick days. no advancement, promotion. Once your hired at a salary, that's your salary for life. No supervision what so ever. Very Unorganized. Not safe. My self and others where attacked a few times by clients and nothing was done. No security at all. Your job is never safe here.
Great for flexibility, terrible for compensation and growth
Therapist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 23, 2016
I worked here for two years. If you are a recent graduate and need to gain clinical hours and experience to get licensed in the mental health field, a job with CCM can provide you with the hours and supervision that you need. If you are looking for those things AND to grow within the company...look elsewhere. The rate of pay that you agree to upon accepting a job offer will be the same, regardless if you obtain licensure, or stay for 10+ years. There are NO raises, time or merit based. The vacation time is good, and the flexibility is nice especially if you have other obligations, but don't expect to see a dime added to your salary.
Vacation time, flexible schedule
Poor compensation, no raises, no room for growth, hostile work environment
Great for college kids looking to gain some money and experience
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 7, 2016
CCM offers a lot of experience with dealing with mental health patients, the foster care system, insurances and dealing with the in's and out's of non-profits. However, there is no room for growth, hourly positions are not offered health benefits and those that do, the health insurance is not a great one. This job is most valuable to those beginning in the human services field for the invaluable experience you gain in the field.
Case Planner (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 29, 2015
This was my first social service job,it was challenging,but i learnt so much.I apprecate my supervisor to this day.I enjoyed working here. The hardest part of my job was working with the teens in the program The most enjoyable was seeing a child return home or being adopted. I learnt so much working here,my skills that i have to this day are rooted here,i have only developed and perfected them. A typical day is lengthy,not a 9-5. Co-workers were supportive .
family oriented culture
management was not always supportive, high turn over rate

LMSW (Former Employee) – BK, NY – February 22, 2013
At CCM, the majority of people, fellow workers, were not respected by the supervisory staff.
The supervision was not provided consistently.
Many times LMSWs received no support at all pertaining to clients', or their own, needs.
Also when I was hired, stipulation was 'no work with children' and that is the primary population that was assigned to me. when it was questioned, I was told to 'take it or leave'.
Also, I was not paid for 2 months work because I submitted the time sheet a day late ( even though that was due to a blizzard).
I am not sure where or when the people that posted positive reviews worked but they certainly did not work at the same time or place I did. No one I worked with stayed there long-term and there was nothing but unhappiness of the staff.
Administrative Intern (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 10, 2012
A typical day at CCM involves communicating with clients and assisting them based on their individual requirements as detailed by ACS. This for me is the hardest part of the job yet the most enjoyable. There is a level of satisfaction involved with helping families so that the children do not end up in the foster care program. I work on a daily basis with a very supportive and dynamic team; the same can be said for management.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 13, 2014
This place was a great place to work with because myself I love to work with children and teaching them the basics of reaching higher placer and learning new things because young children are like sponges and they obsevers each and everything that you do or what they see around them..my co workers were cool a typical day was awesome went to field trips and got to know each child personal.
