    I worked at Centers Plan for Healthy Living full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, good PTO days, supportive coworkers and SW managers

    Cons

    I worked here for 2 years. Only 1-2 working elevator in the whole building. The stairs and some part of the building are always dusty due to ongoing renovation in other parts of the building. High workload, micromanagement, favoritism. No to little use of social work skills. New social workers will question whether you got in the right profession. Senior management does not accept suggestions. Communications between the...

    Advice to Management

    Your company won’t go far if you don’t hire experienced MLTC senior management staffs to lead. Also fix the heat and hot water in that 3rd floor bathroom and kitchen. There are human beings who work there.

    I worked at Centers Plan for Healthy Living full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A paycheck, that is all. And when you receive it, you will ask yourself, was it worth it?

    Cons

    Loss of integrity, a nagging feeling of desperation. Owners appropriately chose for its Staten Island headquarters the isolated, broken down and creepy former Bayley-Seton psychiatric hospital (Google it). It’s a perfect setting for this aggressively for-profit insurance company with a shady past (a recent $1.7 million fine for Medicaid fraud - Google that, too). The Centers’ Plan appears to be to make a Healthy Living...

    Advice to Management

    And now a direct word to the owners and upper management - take my words seriously because without the support and appreciation of good, knowledgeable and happy staff, you are nothing.

      Pros

      The salary is not bad and the hours are flexible. Not too much good to say about this place. The benefits are not bad either My manager was great Can’t find anything else to say because I would be lying.

      Cons

      High case loads Upper management does not support High turnover rate Money driven Don’t value their employees at all Steal your vacation time Always forcing you to sign documents that does not benefit you in the long haul

      Advice to Management

      You won’t last if you keep treating people like they don’t matter

      I worked at Centers Plan for Healthy Living full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I had worked this company (Care Solutions) for over 3 years as a SW manager. I enjoyed working with my SW team and colleagues that we supported each other despite of hectic workload. Without them, I believe I would have left this company millions years ago.

      Cons

      The company is heartless to their staff. They are unprofession, play favoritism and micromanage their staff. The upper managements don't know what they are doing. They only care about profits. They don't care about their staff. They treat SWs like the second class citizens and never appreciate our work. They micromanage their staff and closely monitor/controll the work of their staff.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your staff and trust them Appreciate their work Appreciate the work of your SWs Fix your elevators and hot water issue at the 3rd floor before the Dept of Building comes behind you
