Pros

Helping out the HIV/AIDS clients was rewarding, as well as the creativity of the marketing department.

Cons

Very low pay, as expected of a nonprofit. Manager who was bad at managing people and gave extra work that didn't contribute to any reasonable end goal or result.

    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.

    I worked at Housing Works full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers, donors, employee discount, healthcare benefits

    Cons

    As the other reviews stated, if upper management doesn't like you, beware. They will set you up to fail, they will blame you for things that are not within your job responsibility, they will write you up for petty things, they will spread rumors about you and blame others when confronted about it, and they will do anything in their power to try and make you quit. If you don't quit, they will fire you and they will try to prevent you from getting unemployment (even though they inevitably won't be able to prevent you from getting unemployment because they fired you for no real reason other than they didn't like you).
    I was a manager and witnessed this happen to several of my staff members. When I refused to cooperate with writing staff members up for "offenses" that were either petty or fabricated, I became their target.
    This place is bad news. There is no regard for creating a happy workplace with happy employees, and that will be the downfall of this place.

    Advice to Management

    Housing Works upper management should read the reviews on glassdoor...there's a reason so many current and former employees are saying such similar things. Things need to change, the stores could be even more successful than they are, employees need to be treated with respect.
