Making the best of a bad situation
Assistant Head Teacher (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYNovember 9, 2013
Pros: free lunch
Cons: no breaks
At the risk of being too honest. My current work situation is a challenge because I work for a "day care center" that is not truly geared towards the development of the mind. What, do I mean in this situation? I mean that I work with those who do not have a true understanding of pedagogy as it applies to the child, nor do they have the life experiences that are needed to help booster the child. I can make this assessment based on working one on one with those who constantly present a challenge to anything that is "out of the box" or that is not the norm. I love the students and what they want to learn from me and what I want to give them and most importantly what they teach me. However, because I must constantly defend my decisions around cleanliness, duty, obligation and the best interest of the child, it makes it hard for those student to get what they need. I often feel that because I am a self starter and willing to do anything or as my students say: "Go hard" for them I shine the light on those who are "half-stepping"

These things make it hard to come to work. I tend to stay in my classroom and totally engage the children. That is the blessing in the lesson. The children.

My take away from this experience is that I will not work in a place where I am not respected, and compensated properly for my experience, intelligence and wherewithal again. I have learned the in's and out's of what not to do as a direct result of being here. This will help me because I truly believe that I am an agent of change and paradigm shifting, those not just words in my cover letter that is the creed in which I live.

White Glove is a very good put together home care agency. However, there are times where duties of clients are not made clear by coordinators. There is also miscommunications between clients and home attendants.

Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYJune 4, 2013
Pros: extra vacation and sick days
Cons: no stability or areas for growth
What I like most about Brooklyn Community Services is its commitment to making a difference in the lives of people in need from children to seniors, from the handicap to the homeless. However, the lack of funding for all programs has created a stressful environment.

Wonderful Co-workers; supportive environment
Social Worker (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYOctober 16, 2012
I feel like BCS is a second family. Our work is difficult, but it is made easier because we have top-notch supervisors and staff for support. I have greatly enhanced my clinical skills while at BCS.
