Excellent at Helping Clients
Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLDecember 17, 2018
CWS is a place where a lot of people find great information and everything is done to help in any way possible. I learned many things about immigration and other resources to help immigrants. Management is now using very unfair practices while downsizing because of grant cuts by the Federal government. The best part of this job was all the people you can help and the hardest part of the job is the lack of appreciation and fairness after many years of service.
Pros
Help many people
Cons
Unfair managing practices

This was a great place to work. The office is filled with like-minded folks with a clear goal in mind. Despite the different departments, the entire office worked as a team.

Most Rewarding Job
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCJuly 5, 2018
Flexibility is the name of the game as a case manager at CWS. The rewards are great when it comes to making a difference in someone's life. Case managers spend 20 percent of time in a data base and reporting. The rest of the time is spent in direct client care.

The clients are amazing. Interaction with the coworkers is another pro but unfortunately there is lack of a good management and workers are overworked and underpaid.

Refugee Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCFebruary 13, 2018
Nothing much to say about this working environment ‘and it’s good place to help some one new to the country by welcoming them and assist them by helping them getting their basic necessary needs as soon as they land to their last destination.Part of the hardest part of this position I should say would be getting clients benefits on time which is not in our control .

Temporary Job
Volunteer/Resource Developer (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLFebruary 7, 2018
Working for a non-profit comes with a lot of responsibilities and little benefits is all I can say, If sitting in a cubical is your thing by all means go get it. It wasn't for me. You need to be nice when people are working for such wages. Just saying.
Pros
Helping the cummunity
Cons
Long drive, minium wage and cut thoart director at the time

American Culture and English tutor (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCJanuary 20, 2018
Nice people dedicated to helping refugees. They are supportive of eachother and open about the stresses of the job. If their funding source is going to go sideways, there's no other set of people I'd want to be with while life went side ways.
