Unhealthy Work Environment
Administration (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 7, 2015
It is a shame that an organization that serves children and teens could be lead so irresponsibly. The CEO / ED is a fearful, unqualified gossip who leaves the staff leaderless. This directly impacts programming, fundraising, board management and hiring. Forward momentum is absent and will remain so until this CEO is removed. Administrative staff are resigning monthly due to a chaotic work environment and sloppy leadership. Staff unhappiness and anger is palpable and those who resign move on to title promotions. higher salaries and competitive benefits.
This organization appears superb on paper but changes dramatically once you become an employee. Healthcare and retirement benefits are not competitive and the reason this does not change is because the CEO and HR don't advocate for their employees. This is a wealthy organization pinching pennies and it is both mean-spirited and anti-employee. Meanwhile the CEO is paid far more than the industry standard and he doesn't deliver.
Beware of the interview process, it is not honest. Ask for details on salary, bonuses, benefits, raises and the review process. Then ask for all of this in writing before you accept a position.
DO NOT sign the Employee Policies Manual. You are under no legal obligation to do so. This manual benefits BCNY.....not you!
Provides a safe place for boys to go after school.
Terrible benefits, poor communication between leadership
