First impression
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 20, 2015
A typical day at work required answering phones, checking clients in for appointments, updating the billing department with any changes in a client's insurance, etc. I learned how to deal with clients who had various mental health issues and to treat them with the respect they deserve. Management and co-workers work together to meet the needs of the clients and to address any issues the client may have outside of their counseling sessions. The hardest part of the job was making sure all clients made it to their appointments on time during our busiest time of the day (3:30 pm - 7:00 pm). The most enjoyable part was making sure the clients made it to their appointments on time during the busiest time of the day.

An agency-based learning environment for supporting the "non-traditional" student
Tutor (Former Employee), New York, New YorkFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: well-established institution open to new programs.
Cons: lack of space, lack of sustainable funding for expansion.
Northside strives to grow its clincal practice to support the student who struggles within the culture of a school he/or she attends, for reasons not limited to academic difficulties nor functional behavior, as its net is widely cast througout the Harlem community and is inclusive of a bilingual population who is en route to dual langauge acquisition, as well as students for whom language acquisition and adaptive daily living prove challenging. The agency, working through a medical model, is dedicated, through its best practices, to the understanding of underlying issues interferring with successful outcomes resulting in the greatest possible life achievement for whom it serves.

Great Experience
HBCI worker (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: appropriate caseload, organized work environment, supportive staff, great experience
Cons: intimidation from working within a client's home environment
A typical day at work would be filled with paperwork, meeting with clients and families under your case load and occasionally meeting with professional services that are connected to your client and families.
I have learned a great deal about social services and that working with families is more essential than working with clients. Management works with staff in creating the best work environment possible. The combination of the staff create a supportive work environment. The hardest part of the job is working with families that are resistant to change and it is the most enjoyable part when families take on their challenges and persevere.

very nice work environment
Home Visitor (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYDecember 5, 2012
Pros: the people are very nice
Cons: positions still not filled, causing the soc. ser. department to work in classrooms
Not a very secure place to work. The people are very nice, however many are frustrated and plan on leaving. I believe the company is trying to do their best, but fall short on paying qualified staff members.
