Decent for Entry Level; NOT to stay permanently
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – April 7, 2018
Expect to do way more than just your job description. As case manager, you will be required to do intakes and outreach (both specialist positions that they can easily hire for). Management is inconsistent in that they never stay on the job or they can't keep up with all locations. Administration is even worse. They will listen to feedback, but they won't take any of it into consideration, especially if employees are providing said feedback for the sake of their clients. Clients are easy to work with, and you are part of a good team of fellow case managers/therapists/part-timers. Work environment varies, depending on the location you are sent to work in. It's difficult to decide whether working for Comunlife would be recommended because it goes both ways: the experience is actually very rewarding, and it's perfect for anyone fresh out of college, looking to get their foot in the door with their psych/socio/education/social work degree IF they are willing to put in the extra work and put up with a heavily disorganized administration. Definitely not something permanent if you seek higher prospects. Or, maybe you can be the one to fix it all, move up within management/admin, and restructure the entire program.
Rewarding experience, perfect entry level position, great team
low salary, inconsistent mgmt, disorganized admin
