    Pros

    Job security is top notch. It's extremely hard to get fired unless your actions are criminal or you just stop showing up to work. This organization gives you an excellent look into public service and all of its factors within New York City.

    Cons

    Management and leadership does not consist of forward-thinking, inspirational individuals. This is manifested all throughout the organization and is evident in the attitudes of most employees that are indifferent to the mission and vision of the organization. Everyone comes to work simply to work and most are simply waiting for retirement. This organization is not condusive to self-development, and it can only occur after decades if you are ambitious enough to navigate the social structure effectively to get promoted into higher management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people that make up your organization. Leadership and management practices are extremely important in this manner.

    Pros

    The company offers great pay and health benefits for the employee and the empolyee's family members, including any children up to age 26. This is an old relic that still offers a pension plan! The location is perfect in lower Manhattan and just a short walk to the promenade on the West Side Highway.

    Cons

    There are no flexible work schedules so if you hate the 9 to 5 you will hate this place. For starting a career its ok, but many employees have been there for 20 years plus and their negative attitude about everything can rub off. Most offices have no windows. Also, the clients were frequently difficult to work with making the job experience stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to upgrade the way they do things to make processes more efficient, but unfortunately they don't really seem open to new ideas. It would be great if younger talent could advance further and faster.

    Pros

    Laid- back, nice to interns (but not employees), freedom, great coworkers

    Cons

    Arrogant leadership style toward employees, condescending, no promotion unless your friends with the right person (regardless of incapability for job).

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right employees and check leadership of each department because not everyone does the job right.
