    I have been working at AHRC New York City full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Legacy provider; veteran staff; recognized provider in industry; opportunities for growth; dedicated frontline staff- put people first!

    Cons

    Senior leadership has top down approach (even though would like to appear otherwise; whitecap agency (no diversity on top); does not promote veteran staff with achievements from within; not friendly to immigrant staff in senior leadership positions only as Direct Support Professionals; Nepotism - Executive Director brought all leadership from outside disregarding people from within; spending money on projects like publicity and branding (though agency is well known in the industry) rather then raising salaries for staff in entry level positions. Since arrival of Marco Damiani - many veteran staff left disgruntled. Agency appreciates initiative only if it comes from Marco or Elizabeth L.
