Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 15, 2018
Trying to teach significantly cognitive impaired individuals with multiple emotional and behavioral needs along with middle-school type cliques and back-stabbing among supervisors and staff is mentally and physically exhausting. It's all about the money here, not the kids. Once the primary leadership left after FEDCAP replaced Easter Seals, everything went downhill.
Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 2, 2018
Just not professional or ethical. Management lacks communication. Seems like someone is hiding something based on the lack of answers/ responses to questions asked about particular things. Worst agency I ever worked for-
Independent work environment; Lot of great programs available
Case Manager Intake Specialist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 26, 2018
This company did not give the employees the appreciation they deserved. This company morale was always down. The hardest part of that job was the blatant disrespect. People talked about each other like dogs. This company even thought it still exist no one reported the stuff was bad. We were over worked. They used give raises and they stop giving raises and they started being mean.There were a lot of bad things going on there. There's a lot more but ill stop here.
Senior Intake Specialist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 3, 2018
Fedcap is a good organization to work for. The members of staff are compensated as deserved but there is the need for more staff audit from time to time. I paid a visit to one of the clinic site and I was surprised most of the staff I left were gone because of lack of job satisfaction because one of the Front desk personnel was terrorizing the medical as well as the Case management team or so I was informed.
Adequate break time and humane treatment of staff when I was there.
Supplies are always available, constant absent supervision
Maintenance Worker (Current Employee) – Bedford ave mens shelter – January 29, 2018
Overall a great work environment. Very helpful staff members when it comes to problem solving. My appreciation comes from learning more about Fedcap. Providing shelter for the homeless is no easy task so maintaining a clean environment is extremely necessary when housing people in those numbers, Which may vary day to day. It's very important to keep a leveled head and be understanding when dealing with the less fortunate. Some are agitated by the process others might be having a bad day. A clean shower and living area can help ease tension
A constant learning experience. There is always something new to learn
Program Aide (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 27, 2017
We administer a series of assessment testing to determine job readiness for people with disabilities and learning barriers.The class is one to two weeks long. At the end of the time with us the clients move on to job placement or a training program within the building.
Vocational Case Manager (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – October 10, 2017
If you need a job and have no issues with an administratively top heavy social service position, servicing 85-125 clients on your caseload, then you will fit right in. It is good for a temporary means to an end of unemployment; however professional development and advancement, No. There is no tuition reimbursement nor are they supportive of those choosing to attend graduate school (i.e.: flexible hours, assistance with field placement or supervising your hours). Line Staff tend to be supportive of one another because of the stressful work environment.
