I have been working at Housing Works full-time (more than 5 years)

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.

    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.
