    I have been working at Action For Boston Community Development as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good work/life balance, management supports professional growth, great relationship with various community service programs in Boston, great internal communication, excellent senior management

    Cons

    funding issues take away good city programs, sometimes coworkers can be very rash with clients, such a systematic routine, "paperwork" way of helping the community, sometimes there's people you just can't help and have to turn away, which seems contrary to the mission
