    I have been working at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    12 paid holidays, benefits package that is decent for a non-profit, & vacation time is great. Ability to telecommute after 1 year of being employed. Independent work. Supportive supervisor. Employee events & activities. Given an i-Pad and i-Phone for field work. Gas reimbursement for using own car. Large parking lot for field workers. Ability to meet kind, interesting consumers in the community & feel as if you are contributing to their need for assistance. Expands one's knowledge of city driving. Being that it is a non-profit, pay is low, but still higher than most other social service agencies. Increase in pay the longer you stay with the company, as well as pension with 5 years+ at company. Getting to network with some great staff. Tuition reimbursement (although it is measly). Great mission statement for company, which some employees are very passionate about. You can excel with great writing, observation, & organizational skills. Stable company that should not be in trouble of going out of business, d/t its involvement with the entire city of Phila., as well as having over 700 employees.

    Cons

    High quota leading to high turnover, as many employees become so over-stressed. There is so much paperwork to write up, that often times employees are working late nights and weekends at home trying to finish their cases within 24 hr deadline. Lots of wear & tear on personal car. Having to go to unsafe neighborhoods alone, and sometimes having to walk blocks d/t limited parking or bad weather. Having to see 3 clients in one day in 3 separate regions of the city, leading you to not be able to write up any of the cases during regular business hrs. Incredibly unfriendly CEO. Certain Supervisors are very catty, rude, or micro-manage, making it feel like high school all over again. Low morale among employees. Consumers yelling, arguing, or being plain rude to you when you are trying to complete an assessment in their home. Having to go to dirty, bug ridden homes at times. Having to visit nursing homes with most nursing staff not wanting to provide assistance to you, or they give you attitude when you ask a simple question. Technology can be unreliable sometimes. Sometimes PCA does not close when there is a significant amount of snow on the ground, yet they expect you to be able to get your car out & if you can't, if comes out of your personal time (although they did improve this in the past winter).

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    On-site office parking, paid federal holidays, vacation time, and sick time, pension after 5 years of employment

    Cons

    No paid overtime, PCA is a scam, unrealistic deadlines. Company makes money off of completing assessments, the more an assessments that an Assessment Worker completes, the more money they get paid. If you want to grow within the company, you have to know someone in management. If you speak up for yourself or question anything, management will retaliate against you. I had a male supervisor who was racist and got away with talking down to his subordinates even when going to HR. The 6 month probationary period is too long. The CEO herself is not very friendly to her staff. She does not even bother to say hello when in the elevator. They also expected you to use an iPad to work on in the field but needs to use windows programs which would not function properly.

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Half hour of your full hour lunch time is paid. Pension with company after 5 years of work.

    Cons

    Was lied to about taking work home during interview process (working overtime without the pay). Assessment worker supervisors always encouraged you to take work home.
