    Something new, something old, & yet I'm grateful.

    Current Contractor - P311 Consultant in Brooklyn, NY

    I have been working at New York City Department of Education as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like the pay, the hours, & my coworkers. The location is great, I don't have to travel long to get to work & it's located in the middle of great places to eat, shop, & hang out after work.

    Cons

    The lateness policy is kind of harsh, but that's par the course when working on the phones. I do wish we had a Friday dress down day as well.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management as management gets their orders from the mayors office. You can write letters, but it may take long to get response.

  2. I have spent the major part of my career implementing new programs for at-risk kids.
