Pros

The pros of working at NYFSCGS include meaningful work. The organization assists some of the most vulnerable citizens of New York City, who would otherwise be profoundly at risk. You will make a real difference in the lives of some really interesting people.

Cons

I strenuously recommend against working at New York Foundation for Senior Citizens Guardian Services, Inc. The work is difficult, and there is limited employee support, including no Human Resources department to which complaints, concerns, etc. can be escalated, and absolutely no career development opportunities. Additionally, the pay for most employees is extremely low, while upper management (VP and above) earn substantial salaries that are inflated given the budget of the organization and out of line with industry best practices.

Advice to Management

Management is not interested in hearing feedback from employees, former employees, or even paid consultants!

    Pros

    You get a paycheck every two weeks, and it's flexible work, and provides a good work/life balance. You are not mandated to stay till 5:00pm

    Cons

    I had a great supervisor, who was supportive as much possible and very understanding of life obligations. Depending on the department and building, you will find some interesting characters from superintendent stealing money for tenants, or requesting to get paid in tips for taking garbage down to staff taking two weeks vacation without the knowledge of higher up. Also, the pay is low as full-time and when working part-time the pay is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more involved and really check on their staff because the under handed things that occurs in some of the seniors building is terrible.

    Pros

    Helping the clients is the best part about this job.

    Cons

    No direct deposit and when you receive your check on a Thursday you cannot cash it until Friday. Upper management only cares about money and that is it. For this organization to be named the New York Foundation for senior citizens, is a joke. They offer medical benefits at no cost to the employee, dental cost, but not that much, vision is cheap, ER Visit is $500.00. No tuition reimbursement, no retirement plan, no personal days only 10 sick days, 10-15 vacation days, no other benefits. Salaries are not good even with experience for front line staff. Stressful work, with at times stressful clients.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management, revamp the organization. Starting promoting staff, offer direct deposit, this is 2014 after all.
