The work place was productive and fun. Management and co-workers were good. It was family oriented.
Pros: free in-services lunches provided by different home health agencies, paid days off for ceu's, off and paid for all major holidays, 12 sick days, flexed hours, good salary.
Cons: poor dental plan, swiping in and out
The work place was definitely productive. Each Social Worker was assigned to a particular number of patients. We still found time to vent our concerns. It was a family atmosphere. We laughed, cried and had disputes, which was settled in a professional and loving way. I had no problems with co-workers because we communicated with each othe if there were any problems or concerns. Each day brought about a different challenge a hard to please patient, a difficult supervisor on one of the Nursing Units or a difficult employment outside of the Social Service Office. As a Social Worker, I had to manage all patient cases in a timely manner. I managed the office when the SW Director was absent. SW Director was great! As long as we did our work, she did not bother us. The hardest part of the job was finding appropriate services for some of the patient, due to lack of insurance, prior criminal records or service cuts. The most enjoyabal part of my job was being able to help people and teach them something new, watching their faces light up because the understood what you are teaching them and realizing that you are able to help them.
