    I worked at Episcopal Social Services of NY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its a job and you work with people, students, and families who have challenges.

    Cons

    Absolutely unorganized, lack of communication, little to no room for growth. little professional developments that are meaningful and helpful. I would not encourage anyone to work here if they want to grow as a person and in there career. Its a great starter because its easy to get a job here. But once you have a year under your belt do not ; I REPEAT do not waste time here.

    Advice to Management

    BETTER COMMUNICATION TO EMPLOYEES, NEED AN OPEN DOOR SYSTEM SO PEOPLE CAN LET YOU KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR ORGANIZATION , DO POP INS AT YOUR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS; INSTALL MANY CAMERAS; GIVE MEANING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTS, LET EMPLOYEES KNOW YOU APPRECIATE THEM; ALOT OF DIRECTOR TRAINING; MORE DIRECT COMMUNICATION TO EMPLOYEES NOT FROM DIRECTORS ONLY!

    Pros

    I would recommend others to come work here because it has been a great experience for the past three years that I have been here. I have learned so much and enjoy assisting families in need because its a great feeling to be able to make a difference in others lives.

    Cons

    The challenges of working here is having to explain to a parent that their child is delayed in a specific area and may need to be evaluated .

    Advice to Management

    For upper management I think they should consider supporting the staffs more frequently as well as showing how the staffs that they are appreciated.
