Flexible schedule, but high pressure to meet quotas
ADULT CASE MANAGER (Current Employee) – Logansport, IN – July 14, 2017
I love most of my coworkers. They are a great bunch of people that enjoy working together and help each other succeed. I love seeing my clients grow and become independent. The job is pretty rewarding if that is what you are wanting out of a job.
The downfalls are that you don't get promoted unless you are a either a pushy or bossy person or if you are a yes-man regardless of experience, education or performance. Once you show you are a productive case manager, you kind of get stuck in that role. Another problem is that there is no "one way" to do things. One person tells you to do things one way and another tells you a different way, which makes things confusing and difficult to do the job efficiently.
The so-so, the pay isn't horrible for an entry level position, especially if you have clients at all ends of the county and can rack up your mileage check that way. Other companies do pay more per hour, but not as much for mileage so it kind of balances out. But like I said, it is difficult to move up.
Overall, it's one of the best places I have ever worked. Most of the time I feel like it is worth it, but sometimes I don't feel like the one's dealing one on one with the clients are as appreciated as the management.
flexible scheduling, coworkers that help you succeed, feeling of accomplishment
lack of mobility, management that contridicts each other, not feeling appreciated by management
