    Pros

    Vacation and sick time. Able to set own schedule with clients. Able to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Discourge reporting MA fraudio due to procedures. Family of client abuses program and treats it as an employment program. SC are often gives in to family demands and doesn't reduce unnesscary hours. Billing of units are not monitored. It doesn't take 8 units to do a annual evaluation and then anothere 18 units to write it up.

    You learn a lot about bureaucracy and the status quo.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place for a young worker getting started in the social service field. Over the past 12 years I have gotten a lot of wonderful experience and gained vital skills.

    Cons

    Low morale due to company and funding changes etc. Very high work load and not enough time with work load to provide social work and help people as I want to. Very unrealistic deadlines for paperowrk and 40 hours is not enough time in the week to keep your head above water in this service coordinate position. I often have to work outside of work hours....very hard with other responsible outside of work.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Philadelphia Corporation for Aging has been a leader in the field of Social Services for Seniors. Its significant historical role in the Aging Network both in Pennsylvania and the country is undeniable.

    Cons

    The agency faces increase competition in the market and is constrained by statutes that do not apply to new and more private entrants into the environment. Management is having trouble keeping up with the times. The company policies are archaic and the implementation more so.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Telecommuting! Oh my God!so convenient. I get such done in my own space. Nobody distracting me and I'm close to some of my cases. I have the privilege 2 times a week. Benefits are good. Vacation/sick/personal time.. and all holidays off. People say the pay isn't enough. .let me just say this. While we do a lot and it could be a bit more. PCA pays well compared to other places. I know that from interviewing with other places. I have a great supervisor who doesn't micro manage and is very helpful. She critics when she needs to but she isn't rude about it. I'm lucky and I mean that in the most literal way. I likely would have quit if I had some other supervisors. Overall I'm proud to be apart to the PCA family. It's a great environment. My co workers are awesome and parking is provided. The work you do is so rewarding ..it is great experience.

    Cons

    I've been at PCA for 3 years. I have a love hate relationship with the company mostly due to management and the constant changes but I guess that is what comes with the territory. It's very different depending on who your manager and assistance director are...some are competent and some aren't. Some show favoritism or blacklist you if you have a opinion that doesn't match there's. There isn't much room for growth.you can become a supervisor but again if your name isn't tarnished already. Other than that there isn't much else..some of the upper management have been there for decades too so opportunities don't come up that often. Units. .. I have a quota I have to meet daily..it's annoying it takes away from tell time that could be committed to being detailed with some activities but if you need to get units you can't focus on things that aren't billable. It really is a problem but I see it isn't going anywhere so.

    We are so glad there are so many things that make working at PCA a great place. We do acknowledge that there is always room for improvement. We understand that it is frustrating for social workers to do billing. Unfortunately this is a mandated procedure over which PCA has no control. PCA has initiated a Cultural Change Task Force that includes employees from all departments and all levels to better understand how we can continue to improve the communication and environment of the company.
