    Biased, sometimes non caring management, great if you are quiet and don't make waves and generally good job security.

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation, holidays, training, a lot of friendly people, respect for your personal time. You are doing important work to help the elderly in Philadelphia. Some fun events with free meals, and some great committees. Generally good job security for most. A decent job if you have a good supervisor. You will learn a lot here.

    Cons

    If you have a lousy supervisor, can be miserable. Upper management won't support you. If you're an outspoken advocate, you can be blacklisted. They prefer people who are quiet and tow the line. There have been a lot of issues with the budget due to the state, so there is a great deal of stress for many, especially in the care management department which is now called service technicians. There are a lot of biases and gossip from upper management, many who have been there a long time and aren't interested in fresh, new ideas. Some supervisors have poor supervisor skills and are micromanagers. Some are excellent- it's luck of the draw.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that while some persons may be good in the field, that does not mean they will be good supervisors. If there is a person who is a great worker, but their supervisor isn't good, support the field worker more often. Trust who you hire. If you can't trust them, don't hire them. Assume you can trust your field workers until you have a reason not to trust them. Have respect for the field workers who are putting their lives, and their cars and their health on the line daily with limited safety protocols. Shorten the training and do more in the field training for those in the field.
