    Great opportunity if want to be in the client services field.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsIf you are just starting out, MBHP offers great experience in the non-profit/ client services field.

    ConsThe organization itself is great and really helps people. But the work is tedious, boring and stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure to recognize and appreciate your employees' hard work and dedication.

    Stressful with bare bones benefits and awful wages.

    MBHP (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsFree coffee, public transit accessible, and they also pay for trainings.

    ConsLousy wages for everyone except senior staff. They require that new employees speak a second language so that you can do translations, this is in addition to your regular duties with no extra compensation or insentive. The insurance covers barely anything so if you have an illness, having a baby or expect to be in the hospital a lot get alternate insurance, because they will leave you with a 4 figure medical bill without batting an eye.

    Advice to Senior Managementif your going to offer garbage insurance atleast provide a decent living wage. You are paying us only a few dollars above the maximum to qualify for any government assistance which is like a slap in the face. They also show no staff appreciation, only to those who kiss up but are clearly incompetent. Keep sailing this ship the way you are it wont sail for much longer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsExtensive training program. Very team oriented. Hours are decent.

    ConsManagement is clearly inadeqaute at their jobs. Salary and benefits are awful. Don't expect any credit or support for all the hard work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn the work that your employees do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    staff feedback

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsThe opportunity to assist families in need of housing and related services

    ConsYou pay for insurance that does not cover your normal annual physical ( they bought the cheapest package); no raises in two years- and with people leaving in droves we are all working twice as hard for half as much. And as always- chronies...if they like you , you don't have to be competent. I left in order to keep my sanity. Their standards for staff are too low for me.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your mid level managers, provide better pay scales ( like the kind YOU get) and allow your mid level managers to support and supervise their team

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great work/life flexibility

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, great flexibility between work/life obligations

    ConsNot a terribly supportive senior management staff. Failure to communicate on key strategies or expectations

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen in doubt, over-communicate to staff so they don't draw wrong conclusions about policies or procedures.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
