Fast-Paced Team Enviornment
Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – December 11, 2017
Not for the faint at heart, days can be long and stressful, but the work is rewarding! Starts slow, but moves fast one your caseload ramps up. Depending on your particular program you can offer a lot services in-house, or you may need to outsource within the community.
Great sense of community among other staff, who are very supportive of one another. Excellent training and presentation opportunity for staff who take advantage. Management is supportive of staff moving on and up within the agency and often refer to other management.
Hours can be long as you schedule your own meetings with clients, and sometimes if you're collaborating with outside agencies schedules can be a tight juggle. There is a pretty dense medical records data base you have to learn, but once you get familiar with what's necessary for your particular job/unit it becomes second nature.
Flexible schedules, supportive management, great training opportunities
Long hours, stressful deadlines, a lot of paperwork
