    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits only. Pay is okay but not worth what you go through on a regular basis

    Cons

    Chiefs and some supervisors look to can inspectors. A lot of racism from white inspectors toward black employees while black supervisors look the other way All chiefs and some supervisors never look to uplift other inspects. They wait until they mess up and start policing and ready to fire them even as far as pushing to get authorities involved to make arrests. This job is a police force against its own inspectors putting themselves on the line each and every day in the roughest neighborhoods and some of the most unwelcoming apartments and buildings.
