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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementTake 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Catholic Charities Community Services

    Disaster Case Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Working in a school was brilliant but the leadership was unbearable.

    Teacher (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

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

    ConsPoor 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 Senior ManagementMost 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    horrible

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosnot many. lots of days off.

    Conseveryone overworked. mgmt has more infighting and does not know the processes which are needed to enact goals. literally sat in meetings where one boss was screaming at another.

    Advice to Senior Managementhave the leadership of your corp do the rounds. let them be open. try to do their job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Social Services Should Not Be a Numbers Game.

    Case Manager (Former Employee)
    Bronx, NY

    ProsI 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.

    ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementAsk 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a bad organization to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementBetter supervision and guidance to employees

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    If you want rewards in Heaven, take a job here.

    Educator (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat people to work with.

    ConsPoor 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 Senior ManagementPay employees better. Treat them like professionals..

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
