    I worked at HeartShare Human Service of New York full-time

    Pros

    Heart Share takes pride in establishing a team environment. All the team members employed with the agency has a passion for the field and the individuals they work with. One of the many things that attracted me to the company was the longevity of all of the staff.

    Cons

    Due to cut backs, there is very little money to provide raises to the staff (administrative mainly). This is no fault of the company, its just New York and the government as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Try to stay out of the politics and drama.

    I worked at HeartShare Human Service of New York full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with the foster care division in Queens. The director there was always professional and did her best to accommodate and help the staff's workload. The supervisors there are also as helpful as they can be. Pros about the job also include a flexible schedule as long as it does not interfere with your workload. you get to help children and families which teaches you so much and makes you feel like you are making a difference.

    Cons

    Unfortunately higher management was not always the most helpful to us as we were a small division. High stress environment. Not everyone is cut out for this type of job. The pay is low for the amount of work that is done. Alot of pressure coming in all directions.

    Advice to Management

    Always work together and help your staff feel supported in the workplace as well so they are motivated to continue.
