I have been working at Housing Works

Pros

Helping out the HIV/AIDS clients was rewarding, as well as the creativity of the marketing department.

Cons

Very low pay, as expected of a nonprofit. Manager who was bad at managing people and gave extra work that didn't contribute to any reasonable end goal or result.

Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Wonderful, supportive HR staff
    Great benefits
    Diverse Staff
    Everybody is relaxed and real, people are working toward great goals and trying to have fun while doing it
    not a fake, stubborn, overly formal environment- I love it!

    Cons

    Lack of growth and development-it's pretty much impossible to be promoted and move up
    Insecure office-things get stolen all the time
    Low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more money into HR staff, it is horrible to watch these people burned out like that. It does not seem like senior staff understands the importance of HR. And maybe, if they had more people in that department, they could fix the problem I mentioned?

    I worked at Housing Works

    Pros

    If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all I'll leave it that. Beware though.

    Cons

    Lacks communication and diversity at top management. There is a serious mission creep at this place and not room for growth if you're not liked there are better places to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    House cleaning has to be done at the top level and hustling clients into services you don't provide isn't good.
