    Pros

    Gained extensive experience in working with different populations

    Cons

    The daily/monthly unit requirement was unrealistic because of all of the other paperwork that is involved. This put a lot of pressure on the employees which caused a lot of discouragement on the employees and did not allow for employee to do their job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new staff.

    Pros

    Good work environment and decent pay. Reimbursement for transportation. Decent health insurance. Good stepping stone for recent grads but not those with higher degrees.

    Cons

    Micromanagement lack of cooperation from supervisors. Feels like lack of confidence. Gives you a false impression that they are on ur side but in reality u don't have any support from management. Supervisor are less informed than staff. Keep adding last minute rules as if one is a child. Extremely disappointment. Would not recommend. Plus they change u to cases in places that are possibly dangerous. It feels like a high school more so than a job and when you stand up they ignore you or accuse you of being someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Better training and cooperation from management

    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.
