    Pros

    minimum 5 words - none.

    Cons

    The managers here are extremely UNETHICAL, unprofessional and unorganized. The company lacks integrity and is very poorly managed. Leadership is busy covering things and practicing abuse towards their already toxic culture and constantly micromanages their employees to a point that it is illegal or harassment. Immense lack of trust, and RACIST leadership even though they call themselves "diverse" (its a power game here)....

    Advice to Management

    Please work on being ethical as a company, respecting employees and treating people fairly. Terms and conditions do not change based on a person's skin color. Improve your toxic culture + senior management and work life balance. It is the absolute worst - this is 21st century and your 19th century orthodoxy does not apply in today's age. Don't hide things under the rug and tell people you are a "family owned" business...

    Pros

    Early departure on Fridays are the only good thing.

    Cons

    Cameras watching employees at all times. CEO. HR. COO and others have TVs watching every angle in every building. Owner who micro manages every single person, decision and move. Most toxic work place imaginable. Whatever you do - don’t trust a word they say to you. They lie and cheat at every level across the business to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly they don’t listen, so there is nothing to say. Other than, Joe needs to see what the other half of the family does and how it impacts the effectiveness of any possibility of success

    Pros

    You may leave early sometimes.

    Cons

    The biggest problem with this company is that they can't win employees trust. They hire you and give you high hopes of having a great career, but you get to know the truth in a few days. They provide no job security as you can be pushed out of the door any time. The management thinks a lot of itself and has no interest in what others have to say.

    Advice to Management

    People have financial responsibilities, understand that before you fire anyone.

      I have been working at VCNY Home

      Pros

      Leave early on Fridays. That’s all there is.

      Cons

      A constant revolving door because they have a terrible culture and poor management. Since they can’t keep an employee long-term, the works gets dumped on the employees still there with no compensation or direction. There are zero processes and procedures. The CEO is loco and spends his time complaining about employees eating food that offends him. Upper Management has zero ethics and treat employees like the scum on their...

      Look elsewhere unless you are ok with working somewhere you fear that you could get let go day to day on top of being treated poorly.

      Pros

      fair pay.. flexible work day

      Cons

      This company is known industry wide for having a revolving door of employees.. both by choice, and because the owners don't value their employees.. They use them for as much information as they can pluck from you, and then turn you out on your butt! No consideration of what they do to families, or career paths. These people lack ethics.. Your job responsibilities are ever changing! They have no vision or plan. The...
