Non-For-Profit Organization with a genuine love for community issues.
Pros: 4 week vacations a year, as well as 3 personal days.
Cons: there is room for health care improvement.
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.
