More community need than resources

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bronx, NY

I worked at Episcopal Social Services of NY full-time for more than a year

ProsSolid people who do the heavy lifting and are willing to put in long hours, many challenges to solve in learning how to do more with less, training offered in some areas, real outcomes changing families when things work out, real services given to children in the centers and programs, management offices close to transportation.

ConsLow salary and long hours for a lot of staff puts stress on relationships between staff and management, high expectations in field increase and put stress on management as funding is cut and outcomes are set ever higher. Some of the programs have so many restrictions from external entities (e.g. state or fed) it is hard to innovate and very heavy in paperwork and documentation. This would not be an easy place to work if you expect a 9-5 but a good place to work if you want to dig in and do the heavy lifting.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut down on the number of managers and divert resources into supporting workers in the field, they're the life of every program.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
