Housing Works provides excellent services to its clients.

ProsThe best part of working at HW was interacting with other employees and contributing to a wonderful mission.

ConsThe Executive Director Charles King was extremely controlling and although he espoused management by consensus, this could not be further from the truth. Employees became a slave to the organization. If an employee did not want to take part in advocacy, he/she would be penalized on their performance review. Personally, I did not agree with the philosophy of harm reduction as it related to drugs and alcohol. In order to get well from the disease of addiction one must abstain, not be taught how to budget your money so you have enough money for heroin and food.
