family oriented agency and a great place to work
Medicaid Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – December 13, 2018
I loved my 6 1/2 years at Schenectady ARC and only left because I had the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. I still keep in contact with my former supervisor, director and some co-workers. I stop in and visit when I am in the area. I would go back and work there again if they had something available in my desired salary. I felt it was a very supportive work environment as I felt comfortable going to anyone in upper management, including the CEO, and asking questions. It was started by families of people with developmental disabilities to help provide services that were needed and I feel that it still holds that family feel. The hardest part of my job was meeting with families and telling them that the services/supports they needed were not available (usually for fiscal reasons). I loved the flexibility of my schedule and the relationships I formed with the families I served.
supportive work environment, flexible work schedule, good benefits
low pay (as is true in this field)
