Pros

Its mission is to help people throughout the New York City area and, in some programs, nationally. Atmosphere is relaxed in general. Its relatively large size for a social service agency provides opportunities to move around and up. It has an excellent training department that provides many opportunities for learning and career advancement for mental health and other professionals. Management is actively concerned with equal opportunity and fighting racism.

Cons

It has not escaped and will not escape the economic downturn. The uncertainty can affect things, but while it may experience layoffs or cutbacks it is relatively unlikely to experience the "selloff" or closings that have plagued banks, investment firms, etc... As a nonprofit, it can't offer the salary levels of for profit firms (but, as per preceding, may offer greater stability in these times).

Advice to Management

Stay the course.

    Pros

    A great deal of on the job training and professional development through their in-service training. Staff were motivated and dedicated. Agency was willing to look at how racism impacted service delivery and staff morale. Outstanding reputation in the social services world. Variety of programs that serves a wide wide of people with multiple issues. The agency stayed on the cutting edge of what is current in terms of treatment modalities.

    Cons

    Low salary which doesnt match the output of work the staff performed daily. No room for growth. I felt like my colleagues and I worked very hard and most were never was promoted. The benefits package, including the 403B option is mediocre compared to other agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and acknowledge the hard work of staff more. Pay staff (on all levels) well for the work they are tirelessly performing.
