- 3.0Nov 8, 2023Case PlannerCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearStaten Island, NY
Flexibility is the main pro for this job as long as you do your work.
Supervisors have a condescending tone and way with words at times which is very off-putting. There is also a huge learning curve from training to actual work which someone without experience may find jarring. There is also a lack of organization in some aspects.

Program was not being effectively executed or managed. Emphasis on quantity over quality. The caseloads were very large and no training on how to actually do the job or locate resources. Very low pay.
