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

    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.

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

    Pros

    I had a wonderful supervisor, director, and team. Telecommuting was a big plus. My supervisor gave a lot of freedom but this isn't the norm. Great name on paper.

    Cons

    A lot of bad supervisors and directors. Expected to bill for time which takes away from social service. A lot of supervisors don't care about personal comfort ie how you feel in dangerous situations. Company has an extremely high turn over rate - you're considered a veteran at 1 year. Very poor pay for work load expected.

    Thank you for your feedback. We understand that social workers would much rather be able to practice their social work skills rather than work on a computer to enter information. Unfortunately billable hours are mandated by the state and not PCA. We do strive to support the field based social workers to the best of our ability with telecommuting, flextime and mentors. We know unexpected situations can happen while out in the field and encourage employees to report them. We also closely direct and provide training for the supervising staff.

    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
