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.

The hardest part of my job since I am often pulled from – more... 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. – less

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 – more... without having time to take lunch and dealing with bureaucracy. Most enjoyable is the gratitude from the clients. – less

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.

Management expect staff to work beyond their schedule due to inadequate staffing.
NUTRITION PROGRAM COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Bronx, NYAugust 12, 2012
Pros: staff is very supportive and caring.
Cons: inadequate funding of many programs, benefits are inadequate, too much micromanagement.
The agency provides an myriad of services to the population in the Bronx primarily. The staff works selflessly for the most part due to the empathy and values that they have. Administartion however, does not provide adequate support especially financially to adequately staff many programs properly. Many clients who are in dire need of many services – more... can not be helped due to constraints of the funders and are turned away each day. There are staff members who are supervising areas in which they have no exprience or education in and this may jeopardize the clients and staff. – less

Cons: contractual assignments, turnover rate high, focuses on hiring bilingual individuals
Bronx works is a non for profit agency which has contractual work in public schools assisting the Board of education with some of their most difficult students( attendance, behavior and academics) The hardest part of the job was learning not to get emotionally attached to the students who came to you for counseling that had major issues at home.

My team worked well together the management staff was reachable. – less
