Depends on why you are here
Caseworker (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 9, 2014
If you are looking for experience then it's great. The benefits package is not that great and there is a disconnect from the administration and the people who actually do the job. Co-workers make it worth going to work if you have the right team but you will get burned out very quickly if you are not careful

Great Position to Impact Urban Youth
Youth Specialist (Current Employee), Far Rockaway, NYJuly 22, 2014
Pros: acting as a guide and mentor to youth in need
Cons: unorganized
The position has been unique and rewarding in the great impact that the job has on the young adults on a regular basis. Due to the various threads of management however, the job can become very unorganized with different messages being sent from different governing groups.

Do no work here if you want to remain a happy person
Foster care caseworker (Current Employee), BrooklynJuly 2, 2014
Pros: fantastic and loving coworkers who support you 24/7, and i wish i could work with them for the rest of my life. they are lovely people.
Cons: lowest pay among nyc caseworkers, very stressful, zero support from upper management, paperwork is enormous
I made a very big mistake taking this job. The case loads can be very demanding, especially if you have cases in different boroughs. Management does not give a single dam about the stress levels of their caseworkers, and flat out ignore legitimate concerns/complaints. The turnover rate is very high, but I have been told from the older workers that it – more... recently got very unorganized and bad only this year. Do not work here. Work anywhere else. Stay far away from this place. "It is a place of shrieks. It is not happy." – less

This job is not a good one in the least bit.
Caseworker (Current Employee), Brooklyn, New YorkJune 21, 2014
Cons: unorganized, zero support from supervisors, long hours and no extra pay, just horrible!!
I just started working at SCO and I hate it already. I already started working and have yet received an email from HR explaining salary and benefits in order to get paid!! But they waste no time giving you a caseload WITHOUT TRAINING YOU in the least bit. So you're literally figuring out everything on your own. Its long hours and they don't pay you – more... extra for them. If you don't have a car please don't do this to yourself and start this position. You will always have to travel in order to do home visits and supervised visits and travel back and forth between their agencies This place is HIGHLY unorganized on all levels. Let's just say I will be looking for another job really soon. – less

"Horrible place to work "(Shelter Services)
Program Manager (Former Employee), Shelter ServicesMarch 15, 2014
Pros: none!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: none!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't leave your day job ! Horrible place to work, unethical practices and poor management. My experience working their was the worst; I would not recommend this agency to no one. I received no support the entire time of my employment with this agency. Management don't know what they are doing and staff don't know what they are doing; it's a failing – more... and no win situation in all their shelters ! – less

Shelter program is the worst!
Social Service Manager (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYFebruary 2, 2014
Pros: do as you please. ...there's no structure!
Cons: unpaid & overworked
The entire staff needs to be remove! There's no compassion for the clients. Cliens are viewed as a burden and do not receive the services paid for by the City of NY. Major unethical acts occur on a daily basis. The program manager is involve in fraud and there's no professional boundaries between security and the clients. Security is too involved in – more... the clients personal affairs! The program manager falsified documents to show that she is making her mandated move out targets. Clients are illegally locked out of the shelter if they disagree with staff, especially security and the program manager. The program manager is uneducated and usually uses other staff to do her paperwork! – less

Casework overload
Bilingual Foster Care Case Worker (Former Employee), Queens, NYJanuary 9, 2014
Working at SCO was a great learning experience. However, the case load was a bit much. Caseworkers are assigned from 20-26 active/inactive cases. Cases are very variable which allow you to work with all types of clients and each family have different needs. The agency requires caseworkers to perform the same level of management with all cases including, – more... but not limited to supervising agency family visits, complete and submit mandated paper work and progress notes within a short deadline. In addition to all the responsibilities of a Foster Care Caseworker. – less
