    I have been working at AHRC New York City full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none. Apparently this is a required field.

    Cons

    I currently cannot afford to live independently as a data entry clerk. They are depending on their disabled employees to be complacent with their wages and never ask for a raise or benefits. I have been working here for almost a year and due to the rise in taxes they take from my paycheck, I am actually making less now than I did when I first started. I worked in a former department and got let go due to budget cuts. Was unemployed for five whole months and starving myself before I was hired again. And I was using THEIR services!

    Advice to Management

    Your autistic employees are not children or animals who want to be dependent on their families. Some of us would like freedom to survive.

    Pros

    Promotions are easy to accomplish once working with a great team.

    Cons

    Low pay, short staffed, and sometimes the house budged conflicts with the need for the people we care for, benefits can be better.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take the job if you can commit. It's bad enough to not get paid for being overworked.

    Pros

    Don’t work there if you don’t have to. Good as part time or temporary work.

    Cons

    Modern day slavery! No intergrity! Rude Supervisors!

    Advice to Management

    AHRC NYC is too big to fail! There is a cancer in that organization which if not taken care of will lead to serious problems in the long run. Particularly MSCs are over worked. The caseload given to each MSC is too much for any one person to handle, therefore there is no work/life balance. People work from home and stay late in the office to meet deadlines with no over time and extremely low salaries (modern day slavery you’re literally working for free, easily over 40 hours!) Supervisors are extremely unprofessional blatantly disrespectful to their subordinates. Subordinates cant report their supervisors because it’s a cliquey environment. Which brings me to the next point. Some employees get away with murder because they are shielded by supervisors. If you’re in the in crowd aka supervisors and “approved memebers” you can get away with anything. The training and supports needed to be a successful employee are highly insufficient. Because the workload is so intense, and the turn over high everyone is always playing catch up and covering for mistakes created from the back log of work. Supervisors are willing to throw the blame of unfinished work on a new hire because they know you’re clueless and you’re probably too busy with the immense work given to you for you to even bother and defend yourself. I once witnessed a supervisor speak so rudely to a parent. It was so sickening and shameful.

    The interviewing experience was a window into the dysfunction I would encounter day in and day out! They asked no relevant questions. They pretty much blabbered among themselves briefly what the job was about. One supervisor asked me if I really wanted the job and if I knew how much it paid. They asked why someone like myself with my experience would want to work for them. They pretty much bashed their own agency to an outsider. After that initial experience I prayed they never call me again! But they did and I was desperate for work. Anyone reading this, if it’s management you have a Herculean task ahead of you in defusing the ticking time bomb that AHRC NYC is. Clients and would be clients... you’re better off trying another agency. Potential employees find something else if you can.

    I worked at AHRC New York City full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super flexible, quite fun, and great management team. The guys you support are awesome and the hours go by quickly.

    Cons

    Terrible co-staff and high turnover, difficulty implementing plans due to low-trained staff and poor scheduling. the program is extremely crowded and under-funded.

    Advice to Management

    The quality of care suffers significantly when you cram as many clients into a program as possible. It's also less safe in the community when there are 3-5 people needing support.
