I have been working at Safe Horizon

Pros

Good start if you are interested in a career in victim assistance / social services in general

Cons

Treatment by middle management i.e. some of the AVPs and Directors to with respect to the day to day staff that do the work. There is no appreciation for the work they do. Foster more of a closed door policy in which employees are not comfortable approaching them on issues effecting their daily workflow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The individual contributors of the organization is the most important asset in the organization. They are the ones who carry out the mission of Safe Horizon. Need to focus on being more transparent and follow suit of our CEO.

    I have been working at Safe Horizon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you truly passionate about helping people, the feeling of knowing that you are helping victims of abuse makes the experience worth it. I love the company's mission. Employees are eligible for benefits.

    Cons

    Very stressful... long hours... pay isn't great... Management doesn't value their employees. I ended up resigning because management was not professional and very dishonest. We were told overtime, bonuses or raises was not in the budget.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
