Pros

If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all I'll leave it that. Beware though.

Cons

Lacks communication and diversity at top management. There is a serious mission creep at this place and not room for growth if you're not liked there are better places to work.

Advice to Management

House cleaning has to be done at the top level and hustling clients into services you don't provide isn't good.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best part of working at HW was interacting with other employees and contributing to a wonderful mission.

    Cons

    The Executive Director Charles King was extremely controlling and although he espoused management by consensus, this could not be further from the truth. Employees became a slave to the organization. If an employee did not want to take part in advocacy, he/she would be penalized on their performance review. Personally, I did not agree with the philosophy of harm reduction as it related to drugs and alcohol. In order to get well from the disease of addiction one must abstain, not be taught how to budget your money so you have enough money for heroin and food.

    Advice to Management

    Start really listening to your employees and clients!

    I have been working at Housing Works full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    More lax environment where you can come and go more easier than other places. This can also be a big con when trying to communicate with staff and move work tasks forward.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay employees consistently, high stress, poor base salaries, poor healthcare package, poor management, lack of basic job amenities like direct deposit.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees work so hard for so little money the least you could do is pay them every two weeks.
