Great for the youth not the adults that take care of them
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 15, 2014
Good Shepherd was a great place to work, but recently, management doesn't manage. Days are scheduled to be structured, but in actuality, they are not and the environment is chaotic. Directors do not direct. This is as of recently. Money is either missing or there isnt any, co-workers date laterally supervisors/line staff. They promote "Sanctuary" but that's all it is promotion. It isn't a belief. I learned that when the top dogs leave the directors and division directors really are clueless as to what is REALLY going on. The hardest part is no respect for your own time. You are volunteered or expected to stay. People should have been fired but are still there and that's because they kiss butt. Gossip amongst adults where truth is thought to be a lie and lies are taken for truth. Stay away from the detentions and placement.
Good Shepherd looks good on your resume
Poor leadership and communication. Low balled on pay

GSS is the best decision I ever made. This organization is a true force in the non profit sector. With a clear dedication to the service of the youth and the support of their families GSS makes me proud and eager to come to work.
