The Brooklyn location is better to work for than the Bronx location. There is not a lot of support for the workers and no case aides.
Pros: many jewish holidays and breaks, consistent paycheck, and an interesting learning experience
Cons: treated as a workhorse, minimal support, minimal guidance
Work typically was very difficult and stressful, like most human service positions, however, support in the office I was in was minimal.
I learned a lot from this job, and as a result, became prepared for any other job that I will receive in life.
The management showed favortism and often times was not supportive with the social work and case work – more... staff.
The hardest part of the job was not being supported enough and being thrown into situations without adequate guidance. Also, balancing time management with the demands of the agency with the paperwork. I had an extremely difficult caseload and was often asked to do work beyond the requirements of my job descriiption.
Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the positive progression with the families and the trainings. – less
