    I worked at Archdiocese of New York full-time (More than 5 years)


    Colleagues are inspiring and work is fulfilling. If you are dedicated to the mission, you will impact many lives for the better. Many bosses are flexible and accommodating of scheduling, as long as the work gets done. The org has a great reputation in the community.


    Travel reimbursement is extremely slow and employees are required to put out their expenses (travel, postage, etc) in advance, a huge burden when the pay is so low. HR has taken a turn for the worst, cutting vacation days for new employees and firing linchpin personnel who need to take family leave. Bosses are nearly impossible to access because they carry more responsibility than they can humanly manage. Various positions no longer offer travel reimbursement or compensation for time traveled, so be sure to consider those factors when interviewing. The service area includes all over NYC and Lower Hudson Valley. It becomes quickly exhausting, especially when it doesn't count towards working hours. Salary negotiation at initial hire is the only time to ensure you are fully compensated your worth. Whether you have room to negotiate depends entirely upon the grant under which you are hired and how badly they need to fill the position. Considerable raises after hire are rare, so don't accept an initial offer expecting an increase soon. Promotions, even for the most talented staff, are so slow that many of the best employees leave before the promotion paperwork is processed. If you apply for a position outside of NYC, consider that the entire organization is metro-centric and more attention is paid to city programs.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Stop requiring non-exempt employees to put out so much money when your reimbursement process is so tedious. Offer better tuition assistance. Offer dental and vision (Aflac doesn't count when it is over-priced and under-insured). Stop letting media attention get it the way of the needs of the clients.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Archdiocese of New York (New York, NY) in June 2016.


    I thought the interview went well, but it was very unprofessional how she never respond to my emails (2 of them) just to follow up on the job position. She even stated she will let me know if I got hired or not.
