    I worked at Women In Need full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, really helpful with the medical plan.

    Cons

    No support from manager at all. Absolutely no growth or guidance. Manager would always be complaining about the company and job to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please support your employees and let them work from home. Which century is this company living in?

    I worked at Women In Need full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Depending on the role you have within the organization, you will feel like what you are doing makes a difference in the life of the homeless families you choose. There are a lot of great resources that our families can take advantage of, and you get to be part of the message of de-stigmatizing homelessness.

    Cons

    There is no room to grow. This is an organization that values how long someone has been there over what they have accomplished or would be able to contribute. There was a lot of staff turnover because they didn't believe in raises or professional development. Additionally, depending on your relationship to certain leadership levels, you were allowed more time off, pay or opportunity. They didn't care about work,... just if you were "on their team".

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees who want to grow and advance the organization. Be more transparent with those seeking those opportunities too.

    Dedication. Believe in helping the vulnerable to be able to bounce back.

    great place to work and grow as a professional. Great staff, Training,

    Cons

    not paid for overtime; receives comp time instead.

    Advice to Management

    increase the salaries of the case managers; they go above and beyond, look out for them, because without employees and their tireless efforts and outcomes, There would be no WIN. its hard to keep good employees with minimum pay. After all this is NY and everything is inflated, why not salaries.

    Pros

    It's a growing organization, well known, respected, they are doing a lot to service the homeless population in NYC

    Cons

    Lack of structure at times. Supervisor unwilling to share information in order for you to do your job effectively. Difficult to report things to HR if the person that you're complaining about is friends with HR. Lack of professionalism stemming from the top of the organization that wouldn't be allowed in other places.

    Advice to Management

    Structure and proper protocols need to be put into place. There has to be some neutrality in the way things are in handled in order to make employees feel confident that they can go through the proper avenues for help without fear of repercussion.

    I worked at Women In Need full-time for more than a year

    Not a good place to work

    I didn't have a positive experience working with this agency, you may have one.

    Advice to Management

    Higher supervisor that know how to do the job so they don’t have to learn on their staff and then take the credit for the work. Also make sure they have compassion for the work they do with these families because it impact their lives.

    "Client Care Coordinator/LMSW"

    I have been working at Women In Need full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great healthcare and salary. Great coworkers. LMSW program is pretty new so if you are more of a self-starter, that might be appealing. Clients are awesome and the work is, for the most part, fulfilling & gratifying.

    Cons

    No paid holidays off (comes out of comp time) and must work some weekends. Shelters are located in unsafe/desolate areas, and there are some safety concerns both in and out of the shelter which could be taken more seriously. LMSWs currently get little/no supervision. Work load not realistic, many staff burnt out, very high turnover. A lot of uncertainty about LMSW program, doesn't feel like it was implemented in... the best ways. Some tensions between case management and other staff. General culture of working against rather than for the clients. Put too much emphasis on their metrics/$$ and will discourage workers from spending too much time with clients for the sake of getting numbers up, paperwork done.

    Advice to Management

    It's not enough to listen to (or feign interest in) the concerns of staff, you have to make changes. Most of all, listen to the clients and ask for more feedback from them. We should all have the same goal of not just getting them out of shelter, but treating them with humanity.
