Casa Promesa- Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 23, 2018
I truly believe that although the environment may present a positive environment, it can be misleading. The lack of maintaining professionalism is a bit alarming, including the lack of proper management in knowing how to resolve disputes should be a priority to those in higher positions. What I also found is the lack of proper training manuals or anything to provide a new employee.

Acacia is an agency that allows for the opportunity to grow and succeed and learn many lessons in the field of counseling. First and foremost you learn to work with a diverse population and people in need. If counseling is what you love to the do. Acacia will afford you the opportunity to learn and grow.
Direct Care Worker (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 2, 2018
Easy face paced and slow paced at times. It was pretty quiet and decent place to work. I worked at a residence with 7 individuals 5 men 2women. I worked overnite so it was kind of slow depending how the day was. everyday was different.
Paid lunch break even though your never really taking a break.
Case Manager/ Housing Specialist (Former Employee) – Harlem, NY – September 1, 2018
At Acacia I worked as a case manager, operations shift supervisor, residential aid, and assisted the housing specialist. My time in Acacia peaked my love in social services and molded me professionally.
RISK MANAGEMENT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 28, 2018
Very bust working in Risk Management. Learned critical thinking techniques. VP of Risk Management was the best and most knowledgeable I every worked for. The inconsistency & unattainable setting of goals by management. The most enjoyable was working with then VP of Risk Management who was able to help maneuver through the pitfalls of the culture.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 26, 2018
Highly pleased with the Director of the facility and surrounding facilities. Although clearly a business, those clients with the right intentions and drive, will adapt with great relations to clinical and administrative personnel. Highly recommend for those looking to establish a relationship with the greater Bronx area.
Representative (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 14, 2018
Human Rights will be informed of the operation of the call center. Very unprofessional and I fear for future employees. They are very petty and childish. The supervisor caters to a child and instead of creating a professional environment they in fact create tension within that small space. The child there is cut-throat and need to be investigated for multiple of things, HR is not helpful so its time it goes to higher level of care.
most part if you are Spanish
If you dont like their favorite, petty complaints begin!
Housing Specialist (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – June 30, 2018
First I believe this agency needs to be investigated by human rights commission for their abuse to staff. The upper management isn’t being properly managed therefore they misappropriatly treat staff with no repercussions because that behavior is acceptable. The queens hotels are a mess and most staff with integrity are leaving. If you’re not in the in crowd you will be forced to resign. You’re yelled at, Belittled and harassed nothing was done.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 16, 2018
Depending on your site you get a different experience. I personally love what I am doing for the clients but staff makes it unbearable. We have case managers who are have no degree whats so ever that are paid more than those who hold a degree or two. Management is so afraid of losing funding from DHS they let these clients "get away with murder"... Upper management contradicts themselves on a regular basis, and allow for their ASSUMPTIONS to cloud their judgment. Gossiping from not only regular employees but upper management as well. An incident can happen at one site and the entire organization will know about it before 24hrs.
Sadly poor management and unfair paid rates cause for this organization to lose its value.
People who work in Human Resources NEVER respond to emails or calls but let them need something from you and you don't respond in a timely manner.
Those that are in higher positions have an issue with respect and boundaries.
Operations Supervisor / Fire Safety Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 12, 2018
promotions are based on who your friends with an not your work ethic or experience. Human Resource never respond to calls or emails. Don't work here. There are way better companies under DHS that treat their staff more respectfully and also are ran more organized and structured.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – May 28, 2018
It once was a great place to work, however I noticed that employees did not stay long due to work being piled up when administration changed. I would have loved to continue working with Acacia however I had like 3 different supervisors and each one had a different agenda and what that did was confuse me.
Management (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 21, 2018
This company would do better if they do what they say and say what they mean.They hire anyone without really screening them and they allow workers to go toe to toe without really getting to the matters at hand. I dont see myself growing with his company.
