    I worked at The New Jewish Home full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the staff are friendly, great benefits good time off plan for employees. Good caring nurses, if they get the tools they need to exceed at their proffession.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional, upper directors are not professional to lower staff, pay is the worst. There is no recognition for employees who actually work.

    Advice to Management

    Happy work place, happy employees!! Employees are over worked, and not getting compensated, most non union employees would have to wait years to get an increase regardless of the work employees put in, while executives get all the raises.

    Pros

    Good union with good benefits and many assignments. When you are recruited, the recruitment staff is very professional and friendly, they treat you with respect, and are there for you should you ever need to get help with assignment too!

    Cons

    client service managers could be nicer. they are bit rough around the edges, but I do not let that bother me.

    Advice to Management

    Help the client service managers treat their aides a bit better (with more respect). Other than that your company is great.

    I worked at The New Jewish Home (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This review is for the corporate location. Awesome time off benefits. 4 weeks vacation to start (non-union), 12 sick days, and 4 PTO days.
    It is uptown manhattan so there are still many nice spots to eat but the prices are much lower than in mid town. The offices are literally 5 mins walk from central park, riverside park, and a small park that I never found out the name of. These areas are great to take a stroll during lunch or after work.
    The people in my department used to be salaried (and had to work lots of overtime/comp time in order to get things done) but it seems that someone reported them to the DOL so they made us hourly, now no more late evenings.
    I worked in finance. There was no shortage of work. If you want to learn then you definitely will. I got to dabble in different accounting roles as people left ot went on leave

    Cons

    So many "cons"
    Like most other non-profit organizations this place is top heavy. There is a director for everything. The majority of these directors have been with the organization 20+ years.
    Many of them no longer actively contribute anything but just collect a check and let the underpaid younguns do the actual work
    JHH has this stupid policy that everyone has to come to work in the event of an emergency (like hurricane sandy). This applies to direct care as well as admin staff, if you don't show up then you will not get paid.
    Well I made it through every emergency except the first 2-3 days of sandy.
    Apparently they expect admin staff to help out with patients if necessary, not on my watch. Nurses get paid a whole lot more than I do

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the overpaid people who have been there 20+ years and are not contributing to the organization.
    You can get people with vision, smarts, and good work ethic for half what you are paying these people.
    Get rid of the disrespectful finance directors.
    The Bronx division has been doing poorly for years and this is due to mismanagement. This place is being run by overpaid people with no entrepreneurial skills. Administrators and Directors have no incentive to do well because either way they get paid. Top management needs to set goals and objectives and hold people accountable
