    Pros

    You'll get some great entry-level experience in the social service/care coordination field. You'll also learn a lot about how the public sector functions. There is also free health/dental insurance for singles so that helps a lot.

    The compensation is very low, so be prepared for that. Especially living in NYC.

    Advice to Management

    More consistent training should be available. Also, less micro-managing would be helpful.

    Pros

    SKIP of New York is by far the hardest working case management agency across the state of NY. The agency will never turn down a family that is in need of services. SKIP is not the type to take no for an answer and will stop at nothing to provide necessary services to the individuals they serve. The fact that the founding members who started SKIP over 30 ago are here everyday fighting for the families everyday is a testament to the agency's dedication and overall mission. The jobs done at SKIP are by no means easy however seeing the children at home thriving, going to school, parents going to work and family units staying together makes the job all worth it. This is the place you want to be to learn a lot about real life and what real life families go through on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Every experience in life is what the person makes of it.
