Current Employee - Assistant Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Assistant Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at Housing Works full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Your coworkers are generally good people.
Surprisingly good benefits. (PTO, health care)
For the retail aspect, it's pretty well paying. For anything else, you should try to get out.

Cons

If management hates you, they really hate you. They don't like to be wrong and if they are threatened by you, they will do whatever it takes to keep you in the same position.
Upper management is completely inept.
Pay checks bounced.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    More lax environment where you can come and go more easier than other places. This can also be a big con when trying to communicate with staff and move work tasks forward.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay employees consistently, high stress, poor base salaries, poor healthcare package, poor management, lack of basic job amenities like direct deposit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees work so hard for so little money the least you could do is pay them every two weeks.

    I have been working at Housing Works full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They offer an exceptional benefit package if you are willing to spend a few extra bucks out of your pocket.

    Cons

    The management team can never agree on goals and procedures; decisions constantly shifts, just like the employees: 4 District Managers within one year period. When complaints come up, they get ignored; when things breaks to the point becoming hazardous, nor repairs or mendings take place until someone gets hurt. It is the perfect example of survival of the fetus. If you have complaints, it will go one deaf ears to the point that you will soon learn the motto within the HW employees, "who cares, did you forget, this is housing works?!?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chain of commends: a way of evaluation without company favoritism or politics; better policy management; better training.
