I have been working at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau full-time (Less than a year)
The best and most important reason to work here is that you are respected and supported as an employee. I receive so much support from my supervisor and director, they are always there when I need to contact them and I am free to come by their office when I need help. The company has a great work-life balance, they encourage you to use your vacation and comp. time. They offer great benefits and my co-workers are amazing. They actually care about the population that is being helped and it is the first job I have in which the employees are not complaining about their job nor the salary. My co-workers are constantly encouraging you to further your education and genuinely help you when you need assistance. Catholic Guardian offers so much training (you are required to take a certain amount of hours of training every year) and certification that prepare you for your work responsibilities as well as your every day life. You will never feel lost at this job nor have a lack of support. You will also never just be thrown into your position and given a caseload without the proper training and guidance. I spent two months shadowing and attending week long training's before working with my designated population. They really care about their employees and value them.
There are no cons so far.
Advice to Management

Keep hiring great people!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau (Bronx, NY) in February 2017.
I had initially got called for an interview for the administrative assistant/home finder position back in January 2017. The director of the program called me and informed me that he had picked up my resume online and that it matched some of the things he looked for in a candidate for this position. The interview lasted about an hour and a half, it was very laid back and we had a great conversation going. I asked when I would hear back and he told me that I might hear back in about two weeks. I gave it an extra week and contacted the director and asked him if the position had been filled, he informed me that he had been in a lot of training and that it had delayed the interview process, but that they should have a decision by the end of that week. A month in a half after that interview, I received a call from one of the supervisors under that same director, they wanted to interview me to work within the same program but as a case manager instead of an admin. assistant. At the interview, I met with that same director and he said he thought the case manager position would better fit my career goals. I was so shocked at how this director never forgot about me even though he did not hire me for the first position I had interviewed for with him. He kept me in mind for future positions within his program and I appreciated that greatly. The interview was with him, and my supervisor. It was a short interview because most of the things that needed to be covered in this interview were covered in the first one. They told me I would hear from them soon and that same week, I got a call two days later asking me to come in to fill out paperwork regarding my references and proof of my degree. They told me the process could take anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks. A week in a half after that I received a call from them informing me that they wanted to extend an offer to me, which I gladly accepted.
