    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time

    Pros

    While working at PCA, i would like to say some of the Pros are the flexible schedule, interesting people you meet, and being out in the field all day.

    Cons

    Some days would be jammed packed to meet quota, and work environment can be a bit difficult.

    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.

    Pros

    If you are in the helping profession you will gain experience working with the elderly. They are trainings that can help you in your work or career. The work environment is pleasant. Since I've been there my supervisor and co workers have been supportive.

    Cons

    You can become become backup in your work if you are not organized

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits package (medical, script, dental and vision) Every weekend, and national holiday off

    Cons

    Expect to be constantly harassed when doing the most basic functions (I.e. use the bathroom, eat your lunch) 6 month probationary period when first starting which states (in so many words) that they can terminate you at any time for any reason. Anything short of a state of emergency in the city, and the place WILL NOT close (winter storms and a foot of snow included). Working with the most treacherous, hypocritical, uncouth people of all of North Philadelphia Terrible starting pay ($8.03/hr), lousy raises for physically/mentally exhausting work. Being made to do jobs outside of your job description. Required to become a spineless, sycophantic yes man/woman in order to flourish within the job. Poor management skills Discrimination (racial and age-related) Constant pest infestions (mice, roaches and bedbugs) Apathy towards most employees (save for aforementioned toadies under the thumb of management. Generally speaking, it's OSHA's worst nightmare.

    "Biased, sometimes non caring management, great if you are quiet and don't make waves and generally good job security."

    I worked at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation, holidays, training, a lot of friendly people, respect for your personal time. You are doing important work to help the elderly in Philadelphia. Some fun events with free meals, and some great committees. Generally good job security for most. A decent job if you have a good supervisor. You will learn a lot here.

    Cons

    If you have a lousy supervisor, can be miserable. Upper management won't support you. If you're an outspoken advocate, you can be blacklisted. They prefer people who are quiet and tow the line. There have been a lot of issues with the budget due to the state, so there is a great deal of stress for many, especially in the care management department which is now called service technicians. There are a lot of biases and gossip from upper management, many who have been there a long time and aren't interested in fresh, new ideas. Some supervisors have poor supervisor skills and are micromanagers. Some are excellent- it's luck of the draw.
