They do good work. Great for building experience. Pay:work ratio not always accurate
Waiver Service Provider (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 10, 2017
I enjoy the freedom, I have in creating my own schedule. As long as I meet the budgeted hours for the month, I can work on any days I choose. Some fore sight and planning are required. The workplace culture is very supportive and staff is always willing to listen and provide guidance. The hardest part of the job is the tedious paper work(no matter how long it takes you to complete you are paid 15 mins per document). This job also requires you to "meet the families where they are" This means mentally and physically. In short you will be spending a lot of time in public transit (Employee travel not reimbursed). Overall its a good company, they do good work and have a mission that everyone who works here truly believes in. Graham wants to make a difference and is flexible in its approaches to family intervention and progress, something I appreciate.
Primary Case Planner-Adolescents Division (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – September 5, 2017
Unfortunately I did not stay at Grand Windham very long. I started working there after being laid off. Eventually I was called back to work at my former job and left GW. While worker at Gw the staff was nice and friendly.
Task orientated, celebration at all levels, and inclusion sensitive.
TFFC/ FPPS Supervisor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 11, 2017
Overall a good company trying to balance work and wellbeing of staff. However, more force is on clients and not staff's health. Long hours to accomplish workload assignments. Celebration of staff to goes beyond the call of duty, holiday celebration, fun Fridays and inclusion consciousness.
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF TREATMENT FAMILY FOSTER CARE (Former Employee) – New York, New York – March 2, 2014
It was a learning experience working within a foster care system. Workers tend to try and bond pending on the department your in. the hardest part is not being able to provide the resources needed for the families you service. Most enjoyable is the look on the families face.

Foster Care/Preventive Case Planner (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 18, 2012
In starting this particular job I was never sure how long i wanted to remain in the position of foster care case planner. From the start my then supervisor made me feel comfortable and would give constructive criticism when needed. This job was a job which I did out of feeling good that I was possibly making a difference in a family's life whatever the outcome. I would say the hardest part of the job was trying not to get personal emotions involved. The best part of the job was my co-workers no matter how bad of a day i was having they would always help bring out the best in it.
sense of community, comfortable work environment
low pay for so much work, lack of support from administrative staff
My experience at Graham-Windham was gradifying as a first time work experience.

As noted this was my first employment in the social service field. I gained an understanding of how to work with families and caregivers that assisted me in developing a wor style in my later employments. If not for the lack of benefits I might have remained in empoy there longer.
