SCO is a very stress and cutthroat place to be at. I didn't learn anything there, but how to bill the patient, so the agency call get paid.
Intern (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 3, 2018
Management from the bottom up will push all of their interns and paid "employees" (which are all Per diem) to bill bill bill their patients and push unnecessary programs the patient doesn't need. The turn over rate at SCO is so very high. Working there made me hate becoming a therapist.
As a therapist you are exposed to all walks of life
Disrespectful, unsupportive and cutthroat management
Direct Care Worker (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – December 8, 2017
My experiences as a teacher, coach, adviser, and coordinator of activities have prepared me to take the next step in my career in education. I have always had a passion for extracurricular activities and working with young people. The position of Activities Director combines these two passions perfectly. My mission is to coordinate activities that create opportunities for student success beyond the classroom.
Day Habilitation Specialist (part time) (Former Employee) – Brentwood, NY – November 27, 2017
A typical day for me was to pick up my individual at their home or CR and depending on the individual, we would go out into the community for 4-5 hours and work on socialization skills or other goals. I learned a lot about working with the developmentally disabled population. My supervisor was great and understanding. She was fully supportive when I told her I had to leave the job for a medical issue. Before my medical issue, I was hoping to advance within the organization when the right position opened up.
Medicaid Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Brentwood, NY – November 27, 2017
Great place to work. Yearly Salaries are very low but it is a great Atmosphere. Management is wonderful. In my opinion some of the money is wasted and there are positions that are unnecessary. the company should take those funds and put them into the hardworking employees who are working very hard everyday. There are too many cooks in the kitchen if you will.
Community Habilitation Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brentwood, NY – November 25, 2017
IT really was a pleasure to work at SCO. Management was great, the individuals were fantastic to work with. I really enjoyed the process of setting specific goals and working toward them. It is a wonderful company that does good work. Unfortunately, the pay is very low, there is a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle.
Therapeutic Caseworker (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 24, 2017
Overworked with case notes, court reports, psychsocials, ICPC packets, and emergencies. If you enough the rollercoaster ride of your blood pressure then this is the job is for you but if you want to preserve your health don't do it.
Services RN Pediatric/Psychiatric (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – November 20, 2017
The job does not offer any raise even if you've been there for years. To move upward in finances, you have to look for outside employment for supplementation. The good thing is it is not a stressful environment. pay for RN is very low.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 18, 2017
Pay rate stays the same. Morale is very low because no one is encouraging or appreciative. If you're a quality worker the only thing you will get is more work. Communication is horrible. Management is a nightmare. Passing the buck will be your fate. Promotion isn't a possibility. Supervision does not exist. Anyone can be your boss on any given day. Your just a worker not a valued employee. Ridiculous deadlines. I had high hopes, but I was truly let down.
Low pay, too many chiefs, no support. Terrible Management
Foster Care Supervisor (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – November 6, 2017
Working for WPA was a very rewarding experience. Management can be better. I was able to advancment through the company at a very fast pace. The company was very supportive of employees that wanted to move up in the company.
Social Worker/QMRP/Residential Manager (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – November 2, 2017
Great place to work at. Learn team work, leadership and consistency. I also develop relationships with other companies due to being a liaison. SCO cared about the individuals we supported and met there needs.
