    I worked at Project Renewal full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great supervisors, work as a team, lenient (supervisors really trust their team), vacation time, sick time, etc.

    Cons

    Salary is okay but no raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is incredibly supportive. Encourage you to take time off when you need.

    I worked at Project Renewal full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great vacation days and other benefits
    Invest in their employees through training (great if your heart is in social services)
    Generally pretty lenient

    Cons

    I have never felt more uncomfortable in a work environment. I was asked when I wanted to have children, why I wasn't married, etc. I'm pretty sure that's actually grounds for a law suit but I was too focused on getting out of there to care. Upper management isn't better and there are zero ways to report your concerns without being outed as the concerned party. From what I've heard, it's one of the better organizations in nyc for social workers (vs a shelter) but I couldn't stand it. Their policies are arcane and not based in science. We kicked out a client for using K2 (synthetic pot). I mean, the guy was a recover HEROIN addict for christs sake! Anyway, if you're okay having your entire life on display to your coworkers and being put in incredibly inappropriate situations in exchange for great benefits (but stagnant pay), go for it. But you've been warned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try creating a more professional environment and create channels for criticism.

    Pros

    Employee benefits and physical work environments are okay.

    Cons

    Directors of housing programs are very incompetent as evidenced by poor leadership and low staff morale. They can use a lesson on ethics as they have been known to use discrete surveillance devices to record their staff. When performing poorly, directors are bounced from program to program as opposed to terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your staff. Get rid of bad apples that are contributing nothing to the improvement of your programs.

  10. Intern: Company does great work, but supervision lacking

    Former Intern - Legal Intern in New York, NY
    Former Intern - Legal Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Project Renewal as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn about all aspects of the business, friendly work environment and does provide great personal satisfaction to be contributing to a business that does important work for the community. I learned a lot about the housing needs of poor communities in NYC and saw innovative solutions implemented. Interns were invited to visit sites throughout the city and participate in events. Opportunities to go to court and observe hearings.

    Cons

    Little supervision results in interns learning less than would be ideal in a summer position. More substantive assignments with multiple review and feedback opportunities would improve the program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The legal department was disorganized and could use some attention from management.
