Service Coordinator Supervisor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 31, 2017
I enjoyed the work at PCA. It was challenging and provided genuine help to older adults living in the community. The staff was amazing. Made some lifelong friends there. My manager was great with an open door policy and was very supportive to her staff. I was able to be the same for my team. Staff input for ways to improve department was limited because the State provided all requirements for workloads. Much of the required computer input from the State was repetitive or seemed unnecessary. Very fast paced environment. I learned a lot there about supervising. My department interfaced with many other departments such as Legal, Adult Protective Services, Senior Centers, Communications, etc keeping the work interesting and educational. There were many opportunities for learning from in house trainings to off campus workshops. Pay and benefits very good for a social service agency.
Fulfilling, challenging, good staff, benefits
State requirements that often were not in the best interest of our clients.

Working with this company is great but lacks a lot, such as good management. Another thing is they lack the ability to hold employees accountable for their duties. Just needs some organization and it would be the perfect job.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 17, 2012
some times a typical day at work could be off key. i learned to be patient. some times the management can be busy. my co-workers can get frustrated at times. the hardest part can some times be to get everyone to understand that the job descripture may change. the most enjoyable part about the job is seening the seniors are taken care of at the end of the day.
