    I have been working at BronxWorks

    Pros

    BronxWorks' strength is providing very real, very needed community-based social services to its population. From homelessness to childcare to rent support and much more, it makes a big difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    The internal politics and unwillingness to learn and adapt how things are huge barriers for progress. It wears out any employees trying to make things better or suggest improvements. Program data and impact reporting are almost nonexistent.

    Pros

    You will learn a lot in this role. It is great entry level job. Great for professionalism and growth in the workforce.

    Cons

    Big caseloads and a lot of work expected from Case Managers. If case loads were smaller maybe the services would be of better quality. It’s hard to be client centered when paperwork is priority too.
