Camp Counselor (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 28, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: short breaks
A typical day was very tiring but it wasn't a boring job, I always had fun. I learned that patience is a virtue and that you will face situations where you just want to scream but you just breathe and everything will be fine. The staff was always as friendly as they could be. The hardest part of the job and the most enjoyable part of the job was working – more... with kids. Kids are so innocent and they made the job much more enjoyable for me, but they always would have tantrums and that made the job harder than it needed to be. – less

Far too Large to be truly effective
Program Coordinator (Current Employee), New York, NYSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: reputable company with great reputation in the city.
Cons: archaic structure
Not advised for millennials seeking innovative and creative approach to human services. very encumbered by government mandates and beholden to grant provider whims. it's very difficult to advance as policies don't allow advancement for at least one year. pay is moderate but not exceptional compared to the work/life balance that is lacking.

Pleasant on the surface
Employment Coordinator (Former Employee), 99 EssexSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: the community loves and needs you
Cons: the management is out of touch
Cut throat in reality, middle management runs the show and senior management is usually out to lunch. Line personnel work well with each other and try to achieve for all the participants. As far as quality of life balance, expect to work late and not be recognized for it, except for maybe the clientele which will be very appreciative- but never internally. – more... Honestly, I had high expectations and was very disappointed in the overall experience – less

Crisis Counselor (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 19, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: the program only last for a year
A typical day at work as a crisis counselor was to make sure there was enough tissues with you because you will hear stories of what people did to survive Hurricane Sandy some sad, some happy. What I learned being a crisis counselor is people will do anything in time of need. Management could be okay. Co-workers were okay, very supportive. The hardest – more... part of the job was really none. The most enjoyable part of the job was to make sure when we began the program and to have enough places to go and not the same place all the time. – less
