    Former Employee - Education/Program Coordinator in New York, NY

    I worked at Homes for the Homeless full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fellow co-workers (that are somewhat equal to you in job responsibilities).
    Very little competition among colleagues.
    Fair work-life balance, depending on your position.

    Cons

    A company-initiated fear for all employees that they will or can be fired at any moment (especially due to the number of people fired on any given day).
    Lack of caring and sympathy needed among employees and leadership for work in homeless services.
    Very poor salaries and benefits, particularly for a non-profit organization.
    On that note, salary and wealth distribution is completely skewed - a coordinator who makes $30k, compared to his or her supervisor who makes $80 or $90k? Or a CEO who makes $450k? (Check the 990 of the organization on GuideStar for confirmation)
    Little room for growth and advancement, including raises (employees who have been with the organization for 5 years and haven't had a raise in 3 years is not uncommon at Homes for the Homeless)
    Favoritism runs abound here.
    Very little trust from management towards its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the attention given to your employees, and focus on advancement and growth opportunities for staff who have been there for years. Implement clear goals and guidelines for employees, and do not spread a "fear factor" among staff so that they live in continuous trepidation of being fired or let go. Distribute the wealth and promise in the organization more evenly, so the top 5% of earners aren't the only ones seeing raises and stability. Recycle the employees who have stopped caring, have become biased and indifferent so you can see real change in the populations you work with. Direct attention to your culture and values and train management to have some so they can then pass it along to junior employees.
