    Pros

    Telecommuting, parking and benefits are benefits

    Cons

    PCA is only concerned about upper management. They are extremely top heavy for absolutely no reason at all. Half of management don't even know and understand the job but continue to receive a big fat check but on the other hand laid off so many of the "little people". So interesting how so many SC were laid off (to cut back) but not one upper management staff. Too top heavy! Also no room for growth.

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pension, ample holidays off, occasional raises, telecommuting.

    Cons

    Top heavy management that doesn't respect or appreciate their employees. Poorly ran and managed long term care department, chaotic/hectic environment, high levels of multitasking required causing clients and their service coordinators to suffer, very high turn over of employees, long hours and no overtime pay despite work load requiring past 8hrs of work, unrealistic expectations, high caseloads that are very difficult to manage, non- supportive environment, notorious for overworking and overwhelming good staff members causing them to leave, listed as non profit but operates as for profit. Corporate greed.

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time

    Pros

    Option to telecommute, good PTO and benefits.

    Cons

    PCA can harbor a toxic work culture. I experienced sexual harassment in the office, as well in the field but was never supported by management. The organization has little care for employee's safety, and often places employees in unsafe situations, particularly for women. Management was ineffective and instead of focusing on creating a healthy and positive culture, they focused on putting employees down. They put no effort into helping employees develop their skills and talents, and at times bullied employees. It was clear racism and sexism was a part of the culture that kept many employees from advancing.

    Pros

    Some good supervisors. Slightly more days off than most places. Parking is ample.

    Cons

    When they learned about managed care coming in 2019 they had two choices. Keep the masters level, licensed SCs and attract contracts from the MCO's, or be secretive, petty, and focus on protecting the jobs of the higher level management and hope for the best. Well, guess which one they picked. The board of directors needs to get involved here and determine why this was done.
