    Edwin Gould Foundation

    Executive Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsNonprofit foundation with an endowment that helps poor and underserved NY city kids by supporting organizations that line up with their mission to close the education achievement gap

    ConsNot much employee interaction in this closed enviroment of only 5 or 6 employees. Management has prying eyes into your computer use and will confront you about sites you visit if they feel they want to. There is no visual or audio privacy for admins who sit in the midst of this inner sanctum surrounded by higher ups who have offices. Admins and staff are preferred to be much younger because CEO is a "mothering" type who prys and offers unsolicited advice. Be prepared to add domestic duties like serving lunch, cleaning up break area and after board meetings (loading dishwasher) and restocking pantry to your administrative duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSave the judgmental and busybody mothering for your own children...not appropriate or appreciated in the work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This agency is really committed to helping families.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Brooklyn, NY

    ProsThis agency is genuinely committed to helping families and they are good to their staff. The executive management regularly communicates with staff and makes everyone feel respected.

    ConsThis is a non profit organization so the salaries are low. Also, this is a small agency so there are few opportunities for advancement.

    Cliques and Politics Get In The Way

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe team that I worked with was small. So the possibility of exchanging thoughts and ideas on how to improve our work as a team was could happen.

    ConsThe flip side: since the team was small, cliques formed. Manipulation and politics still prevailed. It appeared that the supervisor was ill-equipped to effectively deal with this, or simply refused to see howmembers of the team were increasingly dismissed and isolated ....despite great work.

    Also, the benefits package and pay really suck!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
