Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 2, 2012
-A typical day at work is difficult, challenging, sometimes deflating but sometimes very rewarding. -I've learned more than I can type in this summary during my time at BAS. They are getting better at training staff. -Management have their hearts in the right place but have room for improvement. -Co-workers are the reason i've stayed so long. It's an unspoken partnership to get earch other through the day. -Hardest part of the job is feeling underappreciated and underpaid for the time and effot you put in to what you do. -The most enjoyable part is OUTCOMES! When you help a client reach a goal, there is nothing like it. It helps remind you whey you do what you do.
Non-For-Profit Organization with a genuine love for community issues.
HIV Health Educator, Test Counselor (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 26, 2012
On a typical day, it is pleasant to work at Bronx AIDS Services. The management is stern but fair therefore it is not a uncomfortable or tense environment. As in every workplace there are what we will call "personalities" to deal with, however overall, my co-workers are easy to get along with and we come together as a team when its time to unite for community efforts. The hardest part of the job is having to give someone an HIV positive diagnosis. Although it is difficult I find that it is also important for our community to know their status and seek medical treatment in order to live healthier lives. My most enjoyable time at work is brainstorming and watching a positive outcome when our plans come together.
4 week vacations a year, as well as 3 personal days.
COBRA Case Management Technician (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 11, 2012
Bronx AIDS Services is good program for clients receiving its services. Many of the employees go above and beyond what is asked about them for their clients who are getting serviced. Some of management(Case Managers mostly) on the other hand do not know how to treat and talk to their subordinates. In Cobra Case Management you have to be proactive from 8:30am to 5:30pm to finish your work event though you will only get paid for working 9am to 5pm. The most enjoyable part of this job would be assisting someone with their medical, mental health, nutritional, housing, and educational issues. Co workers on the other hand are very helpful as some of the other case managers.
Coordinator HIV Educ. and Training Program (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 7, 2015
Management does not provide direct support and guidance for staff to excel. Too much emphasis on personal connections and friendships instead of the best candidate for the position. Salaries are menial considering the excessive amount of work expected of each worker. Organization is in dire need of strategic planning and an overhaul in senior management.
Close to home. Organization is well known in the community.
Poor and unsupportive senior management team. Too many chiefs and not enough indians.

EBI Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 26, 2012
BAS is a long standing CBO dedicated to the care of people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS Working at BAS can be challenging but the reward of helping people stabilized their lives is the best part of the work. As all jobs within the Social Service field the vast amount of documentation can at times be overwhelming, but if you don't document it --it never happen.

the building too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer

Internship (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 30, 2012
I learned a lot at this company as an intern. there is no such thing as a typical day. Non-profits have to work with what they have and sometimes they dont have much. The coworkers are great and it is an energetic environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you made a difference in the lives of the clients.
