    Pros

    great coworkers flexible days off This is not a terrible job as a starting nutritionist. They do take nutritionist with no licensure depending on the site. Therefore, it's a good job while you are looking for an internship or continue education

    Cons

    low pay poor environment Depending on the location, the environment may not be too great. It has a lower pay compared to other programs

    I have been working at Public Health Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good experience with high needs clients, metro card reimbursement. Work life balance is wonderful - because we're a non-profit there's no overtime, everyone is out the door at 5 and then you're off the clock (no contact with clients) until the following morning at 9am. Starting PTO is fair.

    Cons

    No supervision towards licensure, pay is the bare minimum, middle management is incompetent, working in the field is pretty awful - going into peoples homes alone is dangerous and not really worth the meager pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop just promoting the most senior case manager - not everyone is cut out to be a supervisor.

    I worked at Public Health Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The starting salary is great for a recent college graduate and you get to help families that really needed the services for their child/children.

    Cons

    The management micromanages your every move, you are given a monthly unit quota that at first is manageable but during your last months of orientation are extremely ridiculous, you aren't appreciated as an employee and have no one in a supporting position to turn to for help. Managing the families, and all the deadlines that come with the case, is extremely overwhelming. I would not recommend this place to a friend.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of assigning your staff ridiculous quotas, step back and examine the duties that each case needs. Promote communication with management and your staff.

    I worked at Public Health Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in Brooklyn office for about 4 years, its very relaxed, flexible and easy going environment unless you make mistakes or you don't make you productivity then the director will be on you. This job is more for independent people who have good organization skills, who can manage tons of paperwork, meet with families, and maintain billing for the company. They teach you everything at first and give you some time to adjust, but not too much time and you better learn fast because nobody will be putting too much time in to helping you out. It can be sometimes rewarding helping families and children in need. Benefits not bad, insurance, paid holidays, and lots of vacation days, probably the best part.

    Cons

    Billing = productivity, you have to make it, otherwise you will be screwed, you better have good writing skills and imagination because you will need it to create good billing notes. The amount of work you will be putting in, in no way compensates the poor salary this company is offering, especially after you learn how much they get from DOH from your billing, you getting maybe 10% from that...Also, not much room for grow, I saw a lot of favoritism from directors and upper management, there are people who work for over 5 years and will never be promoted no matter how good they do their job, but if director likes you, you might get promoted after 1 year or so, also if they set their mind on someone for promotion don't even bother to apply for the position, they upper management decides who the job will be given to, you will not see equal opportunity as widely advertised in this agency.

    Advice to Management

    Get ride of useless directors, you really don't need 1 borough director and one deputy director in one office if the actual director is doing her job. Give raises to hard working Service Coordinators who you company survives on, to prevent them from leaving and create company stability.
