Internship (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – July 11, 2017
A typical day at work included time sheets. Then we would go over what we need to complete for the week as in home visits, school visits, meetings, etc. It is a great place to work if you want to give back to the community.
Foster Care Case Manager (Current Employee) – Macon, GA – July 31, 2017
Like any company, it has its ups and downs, but I love it because NECCO celebrates individuality and truly executes it's brand. I've worked for agencies that talk about "building families" but only tore them down. I love what I do, the children and families I serve, and my team! They are the best.
Chilled work atmosphere, training opportunities, community events, bonuses
Assembly Line Manager (Former Employee) – Revere, MA – July 13, 2017
This company was great to work for but the layoffs were too often. I liked my position and the people that I worked with. It was a great environment and I would be willing to work in the same position although it was not originally what I was looking for.
case worker (Former Employee) – Kentucky – July 11, 2017
Biggest mistake of my life leaving my previous job to work here. No training, and the workers were immature and talked about coworkers, social workers, and the foster families they worked with. Very inappropriate conversations took place in the office. I am embarrassed to have worked here and am seriously thinking of leaving them off my resume. The other offices in the community won't even work with them due to lack of professional curtesy on behalf of Necco. Some workers took off over a week every month while others couldn't leave to take their children to the doctor or for themselves for one day. A lot of lies and deception goes on in that office!
Did get free lunch sometimes, actually seen upper management
Therapist (Former Employee) – Florence – June 7, 2017
This office is often very cliquey and difficult. The culture pits employees against one another instead of encouraging others to support one another. No two days are the same, however if you are overloaded and not in the in group, you receive no support and are left to your own devices. The clients are amazing, however they can be needy because boundaries are not encouraged. The hours are flexible, but it is often looked down upon if you take time for your personal relationships.
Flexibility, you make your own hours
Unhealthy Culture, Healthcare, No maternity care, promotes weak boundaries, little support, no room for growth
ASO Case Manager (Current Employee) – Huntington, WV – February 11, 2017
The work occurs in the home working to build families through appropriate parenting education and adult life skills training as well as behavior management of youth and adults. Therapists and mental health professionals are integrated into the program and work closely with direct staff. Management gives fair latitude to do your job, This program has a program of self-care of takes time to have fun together as a team. Co-workers are very supportive.
Employees are encouraged to put forward good ideas that help the operation of the business.
Very long work hours in a salaried environment. No overtime pay.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – October 11, 2016
I have worked for this company for a little over a year and think it's a cool place to work. I believe it needs more of a new hire training and better structure to the policy and procedures. Management is not the best but i have had worse.
Management could be more structured and better new hire training.
Therapist (Current Employee) – Huntington, WV – November 14, 2015
Necco is a family friendly company that I truly believe has the community's best interest in mind. The employees in the agency work more like a family with a common goal of providing the best services possible.
Therapist/Case Manager (Former Employee) – Owensboro, KY – October 2, 2015
If you want a relationship outside of work, do not work here. I can only speak for the Owensboro and Bowling Green office though. Also, the pay is very low for the amount of work required with no training.
free lunches; ability to plan own schedule at times
typical day we work and play with kids with many different type of mental illnesses. we make sure they are safe and others are safe as well. my co-workers are great its a team effort sometimes you never really feel alone. hardest part of the job to me is restraining don't like doing it but i understand the need. the most enjoyable is watching a kid learn something or doing something they never done before.
