    I have been working at AHRC New York City full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great learning environment in terms of working with different people of various backgrounds. Salary is not that great, but I fell in love with the population I work for and therefore each day is a fun. The agency provides lots of opportunities for trainings. Room for professional growth. Benefits are very good full time employees.

    Cons

    Lots of constantly changing regulations from the higher ups and the state. Tons and tons of paperwork to keep up not to fall out of compliance. They also recently cut the budget for tuition reimbursement for the employees who go to school.

    I worked at AHRC New York City full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers are much nicer than management. Not much else...

    Cons

    Management did not care much for employees' welfare, such as myself. Very poor pay rate - basically taking advantage of students, especially international students who are paid little to nothing, instead of hiring proper professionals to perform the role of a nurse.

    A seriously MIXED bag with mostly bad stuff....

    I have been working at AHRC New York City

    Pros

    Great health benefits. In a world where these are scarce, AHRC, does provide excellent benefits across the board. My direct supervisor is a good person and does what she can to help me and others but seems burnt out on her job and has uttered as much in from of staff on at least one occasion that I heard personally.

    When you leave for the day, the job DOES NOT follow you home.

    Cons

    Terrible culture overall. We used to have great paid time off but that has been decimated over the years.
    Awful pay and ZERO monies for real supplies and tools to help our population. Perks? None.

    There are possible promotions but I decided to not stay due to the overall culture I spoke of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people with respect and pay them even a little bit more.

    Pros

    Your monthly medical and dental payroll deductions can be as low as $1. The work can be fun and rewarding.

    Cons

    Low wages and disgruntled staff who would rather stay and complain than find another job.

    I worked at AHRC New York City full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many training sessions to keep you updated.

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork done by hand and gets lost when passed along to management. Its time to update the technology so that everything can be done electronically so there would not be issues of lost documents and management looking for scapegoats when things go south.

    The management has no clue what is going on. They point fingers and demand the employees to do certain things that are impossible to be done within our abilities but are very quick to blame the team for inefficiency while they sit behind their computers on facebook all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your technologies so you cannot blame the team when you lose their paperwork.

    I worked at AHRC New York City full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The kids are really smart, motivated, and energetic. A few excellent teachers in a sea of bad apples

    Cons

    The staff acts like contestants on a game show showing off excessively to win a prize (childish antics you would expect from kids). Aggressive behavior towards difficult children is absolutely unnecessary. Teachers tend to overreact far too often because they do not understand the child's needs. Most situations can be resolved with a different approach/mind set but negativity and intimidation tends to rule with an iron fist. Consumers (students and adults with disabilities) are labeled/thought of as having a disability and treated unfairly or poorly. Professional development seems to have no effect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The minority of great teachers that you do have need to be upheld to a higher esteem. They should be rewarded and praised so their skill and practice are emulated. More oversight is needed at every level. An impartial eye is required to really see what is going on within your schools/homes/organization. A visit every few months, announced or not, does not give the total picture of the day-to-day interactions between staff, consumers, administration, and students. Think "undercover boss"!
