    I have been working at Archdiocese of New York full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The staff is nice. Some of senior management are nice. They have a staff cafe. Work building is located in a nice location. They help alot of people.

    Cons

    There is no growth. There is too much politics. The mission of the organization does not trickle down to all departments. Little appreciation to staff. They love to overwhelm staff with extra work and long hours with no compensation.

    A very friendly work environment, but they could be more pro-worker.

    I have been working at Archdiocese of New York full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy. Generous vacation leave on top of Catholic holidays. Staff are friendly.

    Cons

    Very minimal benefits package. Salary increments do not foster motivation or loyalty. Little room or interest to move up in a slow-to-change environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more honest and direct interest in employees. Skim off some of the less competent and jaded employees who fail to change with the time. Provide better pay and benefits for the amount of work provided.

    Pros

    Entry level positions get paid a living wage. Decent number of paid vacation days. They hire internally, so it is possible to get a promotion.

    Cons

    The culture is bureaucratic, and their health benefits do not cover reproductive care, nor do they recognize domestic partnerships. Also, no dental or vision coverage.

    I worked at Archdiocese of New York full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with children who enjoy being in a classroom, coworkers were fantastic and made life easier, consistent and good schedule.

    Cons

    Poor benefits and weak pay relative to other school systems, system is constantly downsizing and eliminating positions: was laid off and not placed in a new position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most can accept making less money than their peers, but also being asked to take on a tremendous amount of additional tasks beyond the regular 8 hour day is not something that should happen.

    I worked at Archdiocese of New York full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I was able to work with many mental health clients with different needs and I was able to build my knowledge of Supported Housing Programs in NYC area.

    Cons

    Management runs like a dictatorship. I was expected to wear many "hats" but not given the adequate time or resources to do so. I was not given a "heads up" about the work completed before I had arrived which caused me to question the validity of my paperwork, important documents etc.Salary was the minimum required for my degree. My salary was higher than employees who had worked for the company for almost a decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask questions do not assume. Be involved on the inside not just the outside. Embrace the cultures and values of the Agency's mission statement. Honesty is the best policy. This is not a Fortune 500 company where numbers are key. Remember we are working for people in need, not working against them.

    I have been working at Archdiocese of New York full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Catholic values, Holy Days of obligation off of work, positive religious influences, great mileage reimbursement

    Cons

    Not all offices are the same as far as support, no tuition reimbursement, supervisors tend to higher based on who they know and who you know a little more over qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better supervision and guidance to employees

    I worked at Archdiocese of New York full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Poor pay, teachers expected to exceed New York State & New York City standards for half the money. Poor school leadership, in that the leaders don't live up to values intrinsic to the faith they espouse. .Why should the superintendent make so much more than the teachers and principals. The average teacher makes less than $50,000...the superintendent makes over $250K...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees better. Treat them like professionals..
