    Pros

    Per title this is a high dive into the direct service social service sector. For this experience Bronx Works provides ample salary and the ABCs of the proffession

    Cons

    This is place to learn, if you want to advance an LMSW is required--this is a good and a bad thing

    Advice to Management

    A powerful Non profit with real hunger for expansion and the ability to hire consistently bright candidates still ought to make it a priority to hold on to those with a gift for the work, advanced degree not withstanding

    I have been working at BronxWorks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow employees are great to work with

    Cons

    DO not give accumulated vacation time back when you give 2 weeks notice, they expect at least one month notice but do not tell you until you quit that you are not getting your accumulated vacation. Caseloads to large and expect you to do outreach on your own, do not like you to team up..

    Advice to Management

    Be honest up front with employees like tell them you expect 4 weeks notice in orientation instead of telling them when they give the usual 2 weeks

    Lower Cms case load so we can provide quality work to our clients

    I worked at BronxWorks (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Able to learn new skills at administrative development meetings. Also an opportunity to leave the desk. I can not really think of anything else.

    Cons

    Social workers are taught to look down on their clientele
    Low energy co-workers
    Revolving Door, in and out
    Older employees could care less about basic technical skills such as typing.

    Advice to Management

    You don't need to go to an ivy league school to do work at BronxWorks. Also, a lot of the older managers are afraid of data and technology
