    I worked at SCO Family of Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at SCO for almost three years. The work was fast-paced and demanding, but rewarding. I developed strong clinical and assessment skills and feel that the experience here was extremely valuable. My-coworkers, supervisor, and director were also great and very supportive. The time off and benefits are an additional plus!

    Cons

    The pay was low and the position required a lot of field work.

    Pros

    Nothing positive happens here at SCO

    Cons

    The higher ups are sneaky. They don't pay you accurately. You have to check you stub every pay period to make sure you were paid correctly. Your voice and/or opinion is useless as no cares what employees have to say. The higher up know how to work the system and steal time. We are over worked because the last bullet of everyone just description basically says "and any other taskes assigned." So you could be a teacher doing the director job or a receptionist doing the janitors job. Can you say over worked and underpaid/not paid any louder.

    Pros

    Get to work with kids and make flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Absolutely unorganized from top to bottom. People are constantly having issues with getting paid and you have to check your own pay every pay period. None of the higher ups take responsibility for their mistakes and it gets thrown onto the other workers. Never in my life have I worked somewhere where the supervisors and directors actually yell at people like they're children. It is horribly organized and people quit the first chance they get. Half of the workers are extremely lazy and never complete what's required of them which makes your job that much more difficult. Such an embarrassment of an agency.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and hold yourselves accountable for all of the issues that happen. This place is going to fail at the rate it's going. Never seen a more unorganized agency from every aspect.


  10. "Administration"

    I worked at SCO Family of Services full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are pretty awesome to work with.

    Cons

    Upper Management creates a hostile environment. Nepotism is obvious. Push numbers to exhaustion.

    Advice to Management

    Value and invest more in your employees. Stop being so obvious about the thing you care about most, numbers... at least learn how to fake it. Sad.
