Horrible.
Preventive Case Planner (Former Employee), Bronx, NYMay 13, 2015
Pros: The pay is nice for a non for profit.
Cons: No support whatsoever from higher management staff.
The Family Enrichment Program (Preventive) is horrible. There is a huge divide between the staff and the supervisors/ directors. They pile work on the case planners and do not take into consideration any suggestions or complaints given by the case planners. There is a huge turn over and burn out rate. They generally do not care for the case planners who are out doing the actual difficult work.

Senior Counselor (Current Employee), Bronx,NYFebruary 12, 2015
Waking up and going to work, knowing that you love your job is an amazing feeling. Being able to communicate with your co-workers without any drama or conflict is also something that I didn't have to deal with when entering the workplace. Everyone was very professional and cooperated well as a team.The hardest part of the job would be dealing with the different personalities of the students. As time goes by , you get to learn each and everyone of the students and they even begin to get closer to you and trust you. My boss is very understanding and flexible . Shes a big help when it comes to the difficult students as well. Overall, My co-workers and I are a great team and I'm proud to be an employee of Bronxworks.

BronxWorks
Senior Counselor (Current Employee), 1130 Grand Concourse Bronx NYDecember 9, 2014
A typical day at BronxWorks is picking the children up, feeding them dinner, then teaching them either a life skill value, or math, reading, and design squad. My co- workers were a great help when it came to dealing with the children. There are about 65 children and no one worker can handle all of them alone.

Human Resources Specialist II (Current Employee), Bronx, NYJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: able to drive to work
Cons: currently no opportunities for advancement
I currently provide support in all areas of Human Resources Relations, to include, but not limited to compensation, employee engagement and professional development. I have learned so much ranging from employments laws, how to manage my time effective, multi tasking. My co-workers are awesome! The hardest part of my job since I am often pulled from investigations, staff grievance, day to day contact with employees is that there isn't enough time at my desk to complete paperwork. The most enjoyable part of my job is receiving employees gratitude and them reconizing the work we do.

Awful workplace, plenty of favoritism and racism, unprofessional working area with no clear respect for the clients.
Case Manager (Former Employee), Bronx, NYAugust 20, 2013
Pros: company vehicles
Cons: unqualified superiors, excess papaerwork with no clear reason on th eimportance of it.
Typical day of work is unorganized, learned not to be a team players as others do not recipricate and you are chastised for being too helpful. Management is bias. Job security is good if you carry gossip to the superiors and become a favorite for manipulating the other employees. Coworkers are somewhat selfish. Hardest part is getting through the day without having time to take lunch and dealing with bureaucracy. Most enjoyable is the gratitude from the clients.

Challenging place to work
Tenant Services Coordinator (Former Employee), BronxSeptember 3, 2012
Pros: getting to do activities that i loved like photography, visiting museums, and attending sporting events.
Cons: clients with drug and alcohol dependancy, clients with mental illness.
Manage Computer Lab for clients living in a transitional housing unit.
Develop activities to occupy client including teaching photography, going on trips to museums, concerts and sporting events.
I learned not to develop personal relationships with the clients of this organization.
Management was very supportive of my efforts.
My co-workers were enjoyable to work with.
The hardest part of my job was dealing with individuals suffering from mental illness, drug addiction and alcohol abuse without any formal training in social service. I was recommended for the position by the Assistant Executive Director of BronxWorks because of my caring operation of an emergency overnight shelter that received guests from BronxWorks.
