I have been working at YAI National Institute full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

In depth trainings, reasonable policies and procedures that provide a good structure when followed, career growth for those interested, good medical benefits, life insurance, Benny card, vacation time (4weeks) can be taken anytime after a year, 12 sick days a year, decent employee discounts( working advantage etc). When you have a good team, the work is easier.

Cons

The pay is barely livable, especially for NYC. Plenty of opportunities for OT but then you end up exhausted. Poor quality of staff, uneducated, unmotivated, and treat the work place like their home. The workload can be overwhelming especially when dealing with bad staff. Management is useless, they too are underpaid and don't support staff. Very unprofessional environment, alot of nonsense is tolerated and often encouraged. This is not a place to stay longer than 5 years, take the knowledge and move on. You will perform many tasks here, from custodian to nursing but will never be properly compensated.

Advice to Management

Better salaries bring better staff, there shouldn't be such a disparity between upper management and everyone else's salary. Treat all employees with respect, meetings are peppered with insults about Dsp's intelligence and work ethics. Work will improve when dignity is brought to the work place, starting with attitudes then salary. If you respected your workers you wouldn't pay them as you do.

    I have been working at YAI National Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers; mission; good vacation/sick time & benefits; training; very eager for you to pursue further education; very supportive of family & work life balance

    Cons

    Low salary for living in NYC; high Direct Service Personnel turnover; high workload; large gap in pay between executive staff and every other worker at the agency

    Advice to Management

    Please find a way of decreasing the disparities between executive pay and everyone else who works at the agency; try not to place such a high workload on management and DSPs without increasing salary/benefits
