    Great mission, poor treatment of staff, poor management.

    I worked at Harlem Children's Zone part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The kids are really what makes it all worthwhile. Working here gives you an opportunity to push yourself and gain more experience than you might otherwise be allowed because there isn't much structure or guidance. The company culture can feel like a family, but that has its darkside. Overall, you work with people who love kids and care. That feels really good. Even though I left, it was with a heavy heart and I still believe in the mission and its potential for good. Im glad I worked there despite negative experiences.

    Cons

    Part-time employees are treated as negligible. If the company feels they are spending too much one month, they tell part-time employees they're not allowed to come in. No warning, and no pay. Sick time: no pay. They also get no benefits and are expected to do 'whatever it takes' to get the work done- without much compensation. Depending on the site you work at, hours can be difficult: staying 'till 9pm for high school sites. Management has been known to flat out lie to employees to keep them there. Offering raises and trainings they never intend to deliver. Also, the HR process to get started can take over a month, and if you request a check for something to do with students, make sure you have at least two months before the event. Otherwise you won't get the funding. Overall, the job was exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make clear rules and orient new employees immediately. Make sure they know what they're getting into. Set up promotional opportunities.
    Make sure that goals are set at the beginning of term, and if they are changed (this shouldn't happen often), make sure ALL EMPLOYEES are notified.
    AVOID MISSION CREEP: stick to the mission of getting kids to college- don't add other initiatives half-heartedly to get funding.
