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

    Care Manager I (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementRealize 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.

    If you have a great supervisor, it's a great place- if you have a bad one- you have a problem...

    Care Manager (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    Prosgreat benefits, time off, respect for hours worked, doing good work for the elderly, great trainings, generally nice co workers. Teams and committees.

    ConsSome very poor supervisors, biases against certain people and favortism, some people in higher management haven't done social work in decades. Can be authoritarian and hierachal. Lots of budget cuts and changes- especially in the care management departments. sometimes very poor morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen and respect the field workers. Have better safety protocols for those in the field. Think about why men get promoted much easier than women do in a mostly female dominated field. If a supervisor is poor, take action and allow workers to change teams if it's a poor match but if the worker is a good one.
