Pros

Laid back environment, you work in a 17th century Villa!, you work in a park, great group of people who love Prospect Park.

Cons

A bit disorganized, very understaffed.

    Pros

    Gem of a park and wonderful mission. Offices are located throughout the Park which makes it pleasurable to have a stroll on a sunny day.

    Cons

    Senior staff believes staff is incompetent and outsources tens of thousands of dollars to consultations, when that money can be used to train and give appropriate raises to those who deserve it. Some haven't had a raise in over 5 - 7 years. They think a simple pat on the back will pay your bills. All senior staff are compensated well but not the "unsenior staff."

    Advice to Management

    Create a better work environment, pay fair wages, and remember Brooklyn is a diverse community so cater to all demographics.


  2. Not the Central Park Conservancy.

    Pros

    Great Staff, talented and wanting to make things happen. The staff pulled out all the stops during two major storms,

    Cons

    Tries to cater to Brownstone Brooklyn. Multiple moving parts of the organization, some are ignored at the expense of the other. The park has a variety of users.

    Advice to Management

    A sense of clear strategy for all the moving parts. Allow individual parts to fundraise separately for specific projects.
