Pros

BFS has passionate employees at their school and community sites. Many of the co-workers at the main office were very kind. The location of the main office central and less than a few blocks from Penn Station; making the commute for people who lived outside the city easier.

Cons

All departments seemed extremely disorganized and very reactive instead of proactive. There seemed to be no method of healthy conflict resolution and several of the executive management used yelling as a way to communicate to their staff members.

Advice to Management

Hire HR staff that is more proactive and doesn't just throw parties once a month and shows more appreciation for the hard work of the teachers, community managers and the administrators.
