Pros

I have had the opportunity to experience several of Seneca's programs and have been amazed every time. Each program offers its own unique spin on providing children and families with the most effective services possible, but all the programs were the same in that they housed intelligent, dedicated, giving staff who strive to provide the most efficacious service possible while always giving 110%. Seneca's broad scope of services allows families and children to be served that otherwise might not have been able to as they offer many services, including, but not limited to community based services, school services, psychiatric services, residential based services, crisis stabilization services, foster care services, and kinship services. I am humbled each and every day I go to work because I am surrounded by people who have dedicated themselves to supporting and working with some of the most under-served children and families in the community and it makes me proud to be able to give back to communities I grew up in, knowing they are getting the best quality of service possible when they receive services through Seneca! Seneca is the reason I am a better clinician and administrator as I have had several opportunities to grow and advance in my career, starting off as a clinician and now being a director.

Cons

I cannot think of any cons I have for Seneca Family of Agencies. Seneca Family of Agencies is an admirable, thoughtful, amazing agency.

Advice to Management

Please keep doing what you are doing in showing your employees that you value them.

    Pros

    I am constantly humbled by the level of dedication and intelligence our staff bring to the table. This is one forward-thinking bunch on a mission to support kids, their families and each other. In my experience, supervisors are genuinely invested in their supervisees, and welcome opportunities for growth, feedback and appreciation. Seneca provides pathways for staff to grow professionally and emotionally and find their true fit within the organization.

    Cons

    In true non-profit fashion, many of us find ourselves trying to do more with less. Although most of us would say its worth it, the work can be exhausting at times.

    Advice to Management

    On multiple occasions I've overheard someone say "Seneca staff are the nicest people." Please continue to keep the bar high as we invite new hires into our family...its these positive, creative, intelligent colleagues that continue to motivate us and validate the hard work we do.


  2. Fabulous place to train and grow professionally while working with children and families!

    Pros

    Seneca's culture and values are apparent from your first day in basic training! The unconditional care approach it takes with the children/families served differentiate this agency from others. There is room for training and professional growth within the agency and the social service sector as a whole. Seneca values working together with the family and child to form stability and success in the home, school, and community environments.

    Cons

    As Seneca stays abreast to the many changes that occur statewide and federally in regards to mental health service delivery, this could sometimes cause quick changes in policies and procedures. Seneca could also improve upon providing mental health services in other threshold languages.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to create times and spaces to have staff communicate the pros of working for Seneca and give feedback regarding the cons of working in Seneca. Increase acknowledgement of the hard work that staff members dedicate to the agency.
