    Pros

    Free health insurance, families are great, job offers great experience, mission of company is awesome.

    Cons

    Where do I start, the director of the company along with HR show very little interest in the well-being of their employees. Office supervisor does not have the educational credentials to do the job she has. Other supervisors are lazy and unwilling to assist staff. The work environment is completely unprofessional. Horrible mileage reimbursement. HR loves to sweep incidents under the rug and there is rarely any follow up. If complaints are ever made be sure management will turn it into an issue with staff and not supervisors. Management is unethical and dishonest about business practices. There are too many personal relationships within the office that affect the professional relationship. Overall SKIP is just plain shady.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe listen to you employees once in a while, promote people based on merit and not favoritism. Honesty is the best policy always.

    I worked at Skip of New York full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked there for couple of years.Both Directors are terrible, they love to micromanage people and they love to have written notes for everyone so later they can easly fire them. Its easy to get job there. Most of the people work there around year and leave beacuse of terrible managment situation. Everything what you can read on glassdoor about skip is true.

    Cons

    Only way to help this company is fire both directors
    This company is non for profit organization, but only not for profit for regular employees,
    whole director family is working there for great profit

    Advice to Management

    stop micromanaging and trust your staff; you hired them for a reason.

    Pros

    Great place to start after college
    A lot of experience
    Beautiful Office
    Great Neighborhood
    Great amenities within the building
    You will meet some great families and see their growth through your efforts
    Some flexibility with working hours- work life balance
    The actual owner of the company awesome !
    Helpful training and resources

    Cons

    A lot of work
    Little Pay
    Clicky
    Uneventful
    far from nearest train
    freezing during the winter
    redundant writing
    A lot of Deadlines
    There aren't enough open availabilities to help the family, so most of your time goes in to placing ppl on waiting list and wishful thinking.
    Some of MSC Supervisors are rude and not helpful. I usually had to do to a co worker or the person above her in order get more help.

    Can you give names? If so , I will

    Pros

    -Whatever good there were, was slowly torn away from the employees.
    -You don't pay for insurance directly out of your check but you pay a lot in co pays.
    -Good entry level job, get your experience and build your resume.

    Cons

    -No ice machine (4 ice trays, over 100 employees) (oh and pack your own coffee too)
    -HR Allows harassment of employees while sweeping incidents under the rug.
    -More focus on billing than quality output of work.
    -No attempt to send condolences (cards/flowers) to families of deceased clients.
    -Upper management puts an extreme amount of pressure on supervisors, which leads to them pressuring case managers, leaving them overwhelmed and disgruntled.
    -LOW LOW LOW PAY on all levels
    -Pay discrepancies, where individuals in promoted positions and signing off on the case managers work were making less than the actual case managers. (Given the reason that some departments weren't revenue generating departments)
    -Upper management never keeps staff abreast of upcoming changes. You will learn about things when things hit the fan, with no advance warning.
    -Forget about having your own voice, you will get called into the office and scrutinized
    -They will pile on as much work as they can on you with no pay increase. As per the executive director, "people must learn when to say no"
    -When it comes to SKIP, "Just say no"

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee retention and less on filling seats and billing.
