Good Starting career but wouldn’t stay without an advancement
Social Worker (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYOctober 11, 2018
SCO isn’t a horrible agency from my perspective. But it is easy to get overworked and underpaid. And beware they won’t bring up your salary until you ask when hiring!
Pros
Hour breaks, good healthcare if you really need it, vacation time
Cons
High Co-Pays, high stress environment, understaffed, no overtime

It’s a decent place to work depends on the facility but here is no raises.
Youth Specialist (Current Employee) –  Queens, NYSeptember 17, 2018

Pros
Trips, no lunch time but can eat whatever they have in the facility depending on your diet.
Cons
No lunch time, no raise.

Case Worker
Foster Care Case Worker (Current Employee) –  Brentwood, NYAugust 29, 2018
I am a Case Worker for SCO Family of Services. You start at $36,000 and WILL stay there unless you have a masters, then you will earn $40,000 and then will STAY there. You will not receive a raise at all, it's not in the budget. You are required to only for 35 hours a week, but will end up working overtime and not getting paid for it unless it's an "emergency" and you are expected to work until you get your work done, even though you won't get paid for it.

You get 12 sick days when you work there for 3 months. You will get 20 vacation days after 6 months of work. Which is extremely generous and trust me, you will need to use them because this job is extraordinarily exhausting.

Traveling is mandatory and much more than you are told when hired. You will be expected to travel to the boroughs multiple times a week/ a day no matter what.

Caseloads are extremely high and unfair. You will be worked until you quit. People tend to cap out at 6 months - 12 months.

It is a great experience and the children and youths you work with make it worth it, but beware.
Cons
Never get to take your break, no over time, high case loads, low salary, no advancement

Stressful Environment
Child Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYAugust 20, 2018
You have to be mentally strong to work at this place because the young youth will test you and be prepared to not be treated fairly by managers and supervisors. They only give you 15 cent raise every 2 or 3 years.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Staff are not treated fairly

They don't always do what they claim they do. A non profit who concerned with profit. Sometimes their environment can be unsafe for staff and client alike.
