I worked at Henry Street Settlement as an intern
Pros – Henry Street Settlement is a small non-profit social services organization. Its people are all very nice and I could always ask them questions, knowing they will be able to help and the atmosphere is very informal. You can switch from area to area to get more exposure.
Cons – Work gets pretty mundane for summer interns and there's not a whole lot to do. But if you really want to learn, there's nothing stopping you from asking for other things to do. Since it's so small, you're mostly by yourself in the corner doing work in the office and it's mostly silent.

I have been working at Henry Street Settlement full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – exceptional potential for growth within the company and beyond.
Cons – highly micro-managed due to lack of knowledge on the behalf of management. it is more important to meet certain funding benchmarks than actually create longterm growth and change.
Advice to Senior Management – be less controlling. allow for independence and creativity in getting results. the populations we serve are unconventional and need unconventional services 9-5 win't work for them so why should we work 9-5?
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Henry Street Settlement full-time for more than a year
Pros – Great benefits; smart, committed colleagues; professional atmosphere; structure; excellent management from mid-level to highest levels (in administration - can't speak for program); strong HR program
Cons – pay was not as strong as it might be at the same level with other employers; not enough room for upward mobility; too much junk food around and not enough places to get a decent meal
Advice to Senior Management – Keep up the good work - but consider our compensation more carefully
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
