"Run far away!"
Former EmployeeSupport Coordinator
Constant turnover so everyone is recent graduates. We're given a case on day 2 without training, management cares about the money only, productivity and when you're called into the office they mentally abuse you. They are unethical, fruadulant and will pull out all stops to make money. You'll learn a lot because they give you a case load of 100+ on your 3rd day and case management is hard without training. The reviews are positive but, the agency requested employees to fill it out for a free lunch. It's not the truth or the current way the agency is.

"Intake and Support Coordination"
Current Employee
As an Intake Coordinator I process any and all new incoming clients that have Medicaid. They are usually set through the county and you call the parents to remind them of the appointment and make sure the day and time is still alright with them. Hardest part of doing intake is sometimes parents will not answer the calls after the intake or will not answer the call for the intake. The best part of being an Intake Coordinator is getting families set up with the services they need. As a Support Coordinator I check in with parents twice a month to see how services are going and implement new ones or take away any services they do not want or need anymore. If needed you send out engagement letters to parents who did not answer calls after trying to make contact with them three times over a month. The most difficult part of Support Coordination is keeping in contact with families because they either do not answer the call or phone services run out and they get new numbers without being able to tell you. The best of part of Support Coordination is being able to know you are helping the families with getting the services they need.

"Learning Experience"
Current Employee
Working at PsyGenics was a learning experience. The staff are hard workers. The population served was a pressure to work with. It is a fast pace job with a lot of changes. It's a great starter job for someone in the field of social work. The agency offers a lot of training opportunities.
