I enjoy working here but it's definitely not for everyone.
Community Support Professional (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 25, 2019
Your advancement is based on your education level and skill and that makes some people upset. The entry level positions work well with school and dress is casual. Great resume builder but you need to work exceptionally hard and be very well liked to move up in the agency.
It was a stressful workplace and nasty people to work with
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 25, 2019
At this place I was working with the mentally handicapped; it takes a lot of patience, my managers were nasty, they stole from the clients, and it was just overall very stressful. Up until working at AHRC I had 10yrs experience in the field and I just didn't feel appreciated and felt I was being treated like a kid and abused almost.
Manager (Current Employee) – Harlem, NY – December 18, 2018
It's a solid company with touching mission. If you are lucky to work in departments like Administration, Finance, Staff Training, Human Resources- your life work balance is perfect- Monday-Friday 9-5 and no worries. But if you work in departments that actually serve people- then it is long days, double shifts or not enough pay for the hard work done. It has very Glass Tower culture. The agency tried to change it- but Main Office asks for things- and everything revolves round them. In progressive companies, it should work the other way around- make DSPs happy so they take good care of people. Most of people in higher management have been around a while- they are into mission. New comers don't stick around for long- unless they are lucky to have a good manager to inspire and push them. Also for higher management jobs- CEO, COO, CFO, VP- company brings from outside- people within are rarely promoted for those jobs - actually never promoted for those jobs.
benefits, mission, people receiving services
no professional development- either you can do it or you are gone
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 5, 2018
The job was amazing but there was no room for growth. There was an open 7-3 shift for three to four months and I was working overnight. Because of my family issues, I asked to take the 7a-3p shift but they kept that spot for the employee that was not keeping in touch. They rather use subs to fill that position on a daily basis. I wouldn’t mind working for this company again if they work with my schedule.
The job is safe but not enough opportunities to move up, grow and make more money
Employment Services Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 10, 2018
At AHRCNYC, I love the work I do every day. I am always half an hour or 45 minutes early in the office. Co-workers respect each other and the work I do is fun. The job is very overwhelming but because I possess some basic Excel skills, I am able to prioritize and streamline the different components of my overall assignments.
CSC (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 1, 2018
The "manager" at BK EBS is the common denominator for all of the negative, heard many negative things from various current and previous employees and previous management about the behavior and past actions would have resulted in removal elsewhere. One day you are the "best friend" the next day doesn't even speak to you; totally unprofessional and obviously uneducated. Needs to be checked. Informs upper management about you in any negative way and the upper management who has never worked with you or barely knows you does not take the time to know who you are and what you accomplish on the job. The main office does little to offer support and all of the boroughs are on different pages. I have never worked with people who behave this way. There is no organizational management or professional management skills. One in charge doesn't know how to talk to professional people and talks to some others as if they are children, no respect Added on duties to set one up to fail, if they don't want you there, they will set you up. The pay vs. the job duties are out of order and needs to be reviewed and adjusted; eligible for public benefits, can't even afford an apartment share . Those who work in the field are delighted not to be in the office. Do not need to be sponsored to live in the US and will not do each and everything asked since salaries are supposed to be based upon work duties and work responsibilities in the real world. Director of another department is impressed with themselves but are not "all that, ranted and raved about one question then the next day as so agreeablemore... after thought, should have been the "director" and directed. No one stands up to them and they definitely need to be checked. One has visions of other measures with the bad behavior and unprofessionalism.less

I have learned a lot working here . My shift was flexible to my needs . Working with the company in this field makes me see the world differently and notice things I’ve seen everyday but never really see understand
Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee) – homecare – February 18, 2018
Great place to work. Director constantly involving himself in affairs that did not involve him. He was a bully when it suited his need and he constantly pushed his,agenda. Made everyone around him uncomfortable. Probably still does..
