    I was an intern at NeighborWorks America.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NeighborWorks America as an intern

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Paid Internship
    End of Summer NeighborWorks Training Institute

    Cons

    They allow their employees (including intern supervisors) to telecommute several times a week. This means there are days at a time where your supervisor isn't there.

    Many times where you feel like you have nothing to do.

    Payroll can get really messed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to foster the internship learning environment more. It can be very boring at times.

    Don't work hard at your job because it never pays off here

    I worked at NeighborWorks America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are for the most part wonderful people to work with.
    They pay for you to travel once or more a year.
    The benefits and additional days off are pretty nice.

    Cons

    Management likes to talk out of both sides of their mouth.
    They make big promises but rarely follow through.
    They reward people that screw up their job and punish the hard working people.
    They preach work life balance but rarely let you practice it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a deep look at the Division Managers. There are several weak ones that need to be removed. Major changes in HR are needed to restore confidence in the Department.
