Pros: opportunity, variety of projects, mission to help new yorkers in need
Cons: poor planning on the part of the executive staff
During my time at United Way of New York City I held many positions. It afforded me the opportunity to learn and advance my skill set. I really enjoyed the fact that I got to do so many things and was given leeway to move forward on various projects.
I felt management was opened-minded and I was rewarded financially and given recognition. I also had some flexibility in my various positions as to how to handle various work assignments.
My favorite position was as a Researcher and Instructor for C.A.R.E.S (Community Access to Resources) which was a proprietary database developed within UWNYC that I helped market and promote to in-house and external customers.
