    Pros

    I worked for BRC for 5 years and received 2 promotions within that time frame. It is a great place for those who want to grow and although there is some favoritism in some programs, it's not all programs.

    Cons

    BRC can sometimes run more like a Fortune 500 company and not a Non-profit organization. They really don't treat staff great and HR is more concerned with protecting supervisors than the subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better. They are the heartbeat of your organization

    I worked at Bowery Residents Committee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BRC offered a great opportunity to learn about program management, administrative skills, QA protocols and working with other likeminded employees. Good benefits package, with FSA, 403B and fare as well as bonuses for Program Directors who make their goals. There is an opportunity to earn LCSW hours.

    Cons

    Your experience will largely depend on your deputy or supervisor. There is a lot of favoritism with senior staff/directors supporting and promoting sycophants who are loyal to them. Work/life balance is appalling as you are on call 24 hours a day/365 days and you are obligated to be tethered to your phone reading and responding to emails or calls. Calls during vacation, holidays and sick days from Deputies. Must work on Thanksgiving Day/Christmas for 24 hour programs. Programmatic outcomes are often unrealistic to attain and there is great pressure to achieve them. Not all staff are clinically trained and have other degrees or no degree at all.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all of your staff in the manner staff are expected to treat clients. Address favoritism with deputies and who is promoted and or pushed out.
