Community Outreach Rep (Former Employee) –  HSCSN-FCDAugust 13, 2015
The only thing that made this job bearable was select staff. As a rep you are expected to do multiple (20+) visit per day in all sorts of weather. The Director is one of the worst supervisors you will ever have. He used Senior Staff to community all of his messages and makes the office feel like they are on eggshells. The environment is so much nicer and calmer when he is not in the office. The are little changes for raises or advancements(transfers have to be approved by director and he does not like to let his staff go unless he is firing them!) During training one of the senior staff members in totally inappropriate (had previous complaints filed on him). Most of the office staff members are not allowed to take a lunch or leave for lunch. Very unhealthy work environment.

Terrible! Unsafe! No advancement!
Outreach Rep (Former Employee) –  Washington DCApril 24, 2014
I truly believe the mission of HSCSN is great. To help improve healthcare for DC residents is important to the success of our community. However, making home visits in unsafe environments and managers not caring about your well-being make the job tougher. Senior management has unrealistic goals for workers. They never go out in the field and experience the day of an outreach worker. WHATEVER you do, DO NOT work for Mr.Doggette! He will take advantage of you, work you like a dog, and treat you like a volunteer. He even fires employees on NEW YEARS EVE!

I learned a lot about the community I live in. Improving healthcare and educating DC families is rewarding. Unfortunately, the pay does not equal out. If you want to just have a job until you find something better, do it. If not, don't even waste your time. This organization is cheap to its workers. You have to use your own car to go all over DC and it takes 3 weeks before you get reimbursed for your gas. They want you to do everything for free, but give members $15 gift cards to Murrays & Safeway. I know the DC families need our support, yet this organization has a lot of restructuring to do. to retain their current employees.
Pros
improving healthcare for dc families
Cons
no advancement, raises, and no safety

Difficult
Care Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington DCMarch 14, 2014
HSCSN is a difficult place to work to say the least. Management has it's favorites....very "clicky" environment. You will work in an office and you will be responsible for going out into the field to see patients and families in their homes....in terrible parts of the city...by yourself (unless you find a co worker eager to partner with you for the day). No opportunities for advancement unless you are the "favorite" on your team. You WILL care for upwards of 100+ patients/families. You will be cursed out by parents....you will get little support from upper managment...and very little training that is helpful. Orientation is relatively non existent althought they pretend to have an orientation program.
The pluses are this...if you have a pediatric background...and you NEED a job right now...they do pay well and it is a job while you keep searching. That would be my advice...work so that you have the title of "care manager" on your resume and make a decent salary...that's how they keep employees...not by treating them well but by paying them well. If you do decide to take a job with them, definitely ask for the salary you deserve....you can bargain for that and you will probably get it...they are desperate for new people. The other issue is that they do not like LPN's...or RN's for that matter...the whole focus has changed and they want social workers now...Upper management will make it difficult for those they do not like....stay on their "good side". Telework is no longer an option...BE CAREFUL....and keep good records and document everything...and keep copies of your emails...you
  more... will need them. You will get through being an employee there...but do not ever get "comfortable" and always keep your resume up to date.
Take care and God Bless....
