    Not so good

    Jul 23, 2021 - Intake Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Get to meet people, travel around, decent-ish pay, government benefits, decent-ish training, maybe, rarely even help people, was sometimes interesting

    Cons

    No work life balance, hostile clients, hostile, terrible, non-supportive management, racist coworkers, often seems like not really helping but just punitive, penalizing poor people, and especially, people of color.
