Do not work here if you want to remain happy, healthy and have a sense of integrity
Family Support (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – December 12, 2014
My experience with this organization has been awful. Lack of training, low salary and proper supervision. Management does not care about it's employees unless you are in their clique. What a toxic, non supportive and "every man for themselves" kind of environment. Extreme lack of communication, having to deal with bad attitudes, having to deal with people yelling, having no formal training,working without a job description, having a director with lack of empathy.
I would like to note some of SCO Family Services values which include Excellence, – “we dedicate ourselves to the highest standards of practice and performance and strive to achieve excellence and professionalism in all we do”, Effective – “we produce results by motivating and supporting each person and family we serve so they can meet and exceed their personal goals” Compassion – “we provide deep empathy and a safe, caring environment that enriches each life we touch”.
I know this applies to the families and individuals that they serve but why not their workers? Doesn’t it start with the family, the family being SCO or lead by example. A director lacking empathy and just pure disdain for the profession and subordinators cannot be a great leader.
