    I have been working at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    There are no cons so far.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being passionate about what you do and treating your employees right!
    Keep hiring great people!

    I worked at Catholic Guardian Society and Home Bureau full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Catholic holidays and 4 weeks vacation

    Cons

    Where do I begin?.. I started with a new program in the Bronx. The supervisor that over saw the program did not interview. Which is what should have happened. She seemed to dislike me. I was later informed she has been racist towards other black and AA staff. I was micromanaged even to my rear room breaks. I was terminated after being out few days to take care of a sick family member. I don't even think that is LEGAL. All Hispanic staff at the Bronx site. No blacks or AA in certain departments. Racism, favoritism, disorganized

    Advice to Management

    Do things lawfully

    Pros

    Extensive vacation and comp time.

    Cons

    Not enough time to use vacation, administration are unupportive, staff is not appropriately paid however administration make over 6 figures, there is constantly work being trickled down which entails more work than is possible to complete and the clients suffer as a result. Management does not require staff to act professionally at all times because many staff members act inappropriately.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job so underpaid and overworked staff doesn't haven't to carry the entire load. Also actually supervise what your staff is doing.
