Current Employee - Case Worker I in Bronx, NY (US)

I have been working at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau

Pros

This job has given me nothing to list as a Pro, besides being able to help children. :-/

Cons

I spend all of my waking hours either thinking about work, or doing work. My life has now been tormented with thoughts of what my clients are doing, when I have to call to check up, and how I am going to learn and get all of this work done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management has a no-care attitude towards their employees, and they show you this attitude from the start. If this job had a training period, then maybe I would respect and appreciate my work there more. On top of that, they threw me into the job with 20 cases and no working knowledge of what I'm supposed to do and/or say in court.

    I have been working at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Agency gives you all major and Catholic holy and holidays. You get vacation, personal and sick days.

    Cons

    You get NO cost of living increases, no salary increases, no bonuses......When it come to salary, the.money you made in 2005 you are still making the same amount in 2014. This agency cares nothing about its employees, most employees cannot pay their bills because of the low wages. The moral is very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking about yourself and help the employees get a decent cost of living increase

    I worked at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    experience in dealing with all sort of crises and on going problems

    Cons

    understaffed, underpaid direct care staff is the downfall o the entire company. these people need to be better paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase the pay rate from the bottom up. The people on the front line (direct care staff) are the most important yet the least valued. If they were paid more and appreciated more, the rest of the problems would be solved. as a previous manager, all of the issues I dealt with came from a lack of feeling valued by my direct staff. Had they received a more fair wage for the work they do, the rest of the company would run smoothly.
