Review for FEDERATION EMPLOYMENT AND GUIDANCE SERVICE INC , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have worked for FEGS for over 10 years and have worked for various capacities. I can truly say that this has truly been a most rewarding life experience. FEGS is committed to helping individuals attain self-sufficiency by assisting the hard-to-serve population with skills training and employment services. FEGS has afforded me the opportunity to extend its agency mission through the meaningful work that I and so many contribute day-to-day. The measure of its success is witnessed everyday when individuals report to work and are able to provide for their families. FEGS could benefit from engaging in more professional development trainings and strongly encouraging employees to obtain higher education.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Making a positive impact in the lives of so many by simply offering to listen and provide guidance in dealing with life and coping.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

some of the nicest individuals I have ever met.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide much needed additional staff and consumer needs through continued program support.

Ways to make it better...

more emphasis is placed on employee development.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of qualified people in the right positions to handle the level of consumers' needs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I cannot imagine new york without an FEGS...
