    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.

    Certain departments/health clinics seem to be overworked, struggling with funding and receive shorter end of the stick.

    Pros

    The office that I interned in was small and friendly. The supervisor was very open.

    Cons

    Open plan space of the office was tough, especially with the amount of noise from other areas of the room.

    Advice to Management

    Sound dampeners, if possible.

    Pros

    Paychecks were on time, and tax forms were sent on time, as required by law.

    Cons

    Very difficult to access HR protection from management as a contractor through PHS. There is no way to air grievances that result in fair representation of contract-based employees. Management is assumed to be right, and is defended in grievance process.

    Advice to Management

    Your contractors deserve the same opportunity to have HR protections from abusive management that are offered to other PHS employees. No exit interview was available to me to explain the bias toward management.

    awesome opportunity and happy for the chance to grow as a professional
