    A Human Services organization with a mission and a heart

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNHS provides a wide variety of services with job opportunities at every level. They provide a comprehensive orientation and continued opportunities for professional growth. There are several lines of service offered by the company expanding the options for your career path. Job satisfaction, great relationships with peers, and strong friendships were just a few of the perks I enjoyed while employed with NHS.

    ConsAs with any human services organization, salaries are partially dependent on funds received. This means highly qualified staff are not always paid what they are worth. For me, the lesser salary was balanced by a nice benefit package and a high level of job satisfaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSimilar positions across the state are not given equal weight by title or salary. This could be balanced. Keep the community ties strong. Keep providing high quality care to those who are in need.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is a great company to work for except for the benefits compensation.

    NHS believes in promoting staff who display the core values and who show initiative

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA (US)

    ProsCompetitive salaries, great benefit package, leadership development and advancement available, numerous support services available, and a high committment to compliance and integrity. The mission of NHS is to provide the highest quality of care to individuals in need. Staff who truly believe in this mission are extremely successful in building their career at NHS. Staff who work in direct care are capable of working their way up to corporate positions, if they have patience, determination, and very good work ethic.

    ConsLarge diverse company makes it difficult to communicate effectively. However, there are other opportunities for employees to obtain information and happenings around NHS by visiting their website or Facebook page.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to develop employees by sending them to leadership development and encouraging them to follow the NHS mission and core values.

    Great expectations for all their workers, yet realistic and reasonable in making tools for success available.

    Enhanced Case Manager (Former Employee) Stroudsburg, PA (US)

    ProsThey have high standards and help you develop into a better worker. Managers give plenty of helpful feedback and resources to their workers while also listening to the workers and implementing their ideas. If you work for them you will grow as a worker and as a person.

    ConsThey have high standards and expect you to have the same. You work very hard at NHS so don't apply if you want an "easy" job. You work with people constantly and your customers have real problems that need to be addressed. Don't apply if you don't like working with people or solving problems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep setting the standards high. People need to be pushed to perform at their highest level not the status quo.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
