Day Habilitation Specialist (Former Employee), New York – April 16, 2014
Pros: health benefits
Cons: management, work life balance, salary, job culture
FEGS is a miserable place to work. Job security is at an all time low. Salary for a degreed position is barley livable. Management is terrible and moving up the ladder is impossible. In addition work/life balance is nonexistent. I believe that FEGS hired people to write positive reviews on Indeed.
Employability Specialist/Assistant (Current Employee), Bronx, NY – January 3, 2014
Fegs is a fast paced environment where I wear many hats. I meet with approximately 10-13 clients a day assessing them and entering them into the system. I also work closely with my supervisor generating reports and other Excel spreadsheets. I also provide excellent customer service to irate clients who need assistance. I enjoy this job assisting clients – more... to get off of public assistance and into a full time job. – less
Residential Habilitation Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NY – October 10, 2013
A typical day at work would consist of teaching adults with physically disabilities independence in their residence. Some of the duties would be cooking, cleaning, showering basic learning skills for example; time, mathematics, washing dishes and doing laundry.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to teach and take care of people that are – more... less capable then myself. – less
Social Worker (Former Employee), Copiague, NY – August 27, 2013
Pros: birthday celebrations. staff lunches, great supervison, set hours
Cons: very short breaks if any
FEGS taught me alot about working with individuals who have diagnosed mental health issues. I learned how to complete discharge plans, personalized recovery plans and so much more. The individuals who worked with me were warm, loving and supportive. The hardest part of the job was trying to help clients establish life goals and help them achieve those – more... goals. – less
Director (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NY – June 26, 2013
I worked for FEGS for 14 years-attained 4 promotion. my last position was as director of B'klyn CDT program(moved to Ex-spouse's place of birth). I found FEGS to be superior in their ongoing search for" evidence based best practices". We wre the first non-profit mH program to have a neurocognitive track. in addition , we implemented DBT in the early – more... 1980's prior to its internationally broad acceptance as a very effective treatment intervention for srvicing our most troubled clients. it is thanks to the inspiration of FEGS that I attribute my passion for continued research-my latest treatment adaptation is related to Interpersonal Neurobiology , my adaptation of the neurosciences in the treatment of clients carrying multiple diagnoses – less
Peer Specialist (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NY – May 29, 2013
Pros: free gym membership
This company was a nightmare. The hiring process took two months benefits were good the pay was not that great, (I've had Retail jobs that paid more) Joining the union was mandatory and the dues from each paycheck were ridiculous. Staff didn't communicate effectively, never answered e-mails and rarely worked as a team. No training what so ever and just – more... overall not that supportive – less
FEGS programs are great and they really want to help people. However the majority of the line staff is overworked and underpaid. To offer a pat on the back for a job well done would push these great workers to a level where they feel appreciated.
