I worked at East Harlem Tutorial Program full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Entrepreneurial Atmosphere. I had the chance to work on some exciting projects. I also met some really supportive people while I worked there and everyone is generally intent on helping each other out. The office is close to public transportation and there are opportunities for training and growth.

Cons

Low compensation, not the right fit for me. With all of the great things going on, it's still an organization that is run very much haphazardly, and is still reactive instead of proactive. I felt the Senior Management leaders could do a better job of connecting to the community. Bias training would also greatly help the leaders of the organization.

Advice to Management

Understand people's inherent strengths and weaknesses before placement

    Pros

    Their mission is great and they really strive to help the under-served children of the East Harlem community by providing high quality education.

    Cons

    It's tough to put into words because it's difficult to imagine that this can still happen in this day and age but the honest truth is that if you are not of a "certain" background or have an Ivy League education you simply will not go far in this organization. You can have great ideas and input but unless you are able to have someone of a certain class present them, they will not be considered and will never come into fruition. It's sad but true. And, although the mission is great etc. as I mentioned above - having this underlying organizational culture only hinders the great work they are attempting to put forth. The vision is there but unless they let "others" into the real decision making process, they will not reach their goals.

    Advice to Management

    Consider running a true analysis of how your employees feel about working there (with a third party facilitator - not someone from EHTP management). You might be surprised at what you find out.

    Pros

    The organization attracts an amazing mission-driven staff who are dedicated to providing academic, enrichment, and social emotional learning opportunities to the children and families of East Harlem. You really feel like your efforts are making a difference. The organization is also dedicated to professional development and supporting staff. New ideas are welcome and appreciated and senior management is very accessible and appreciative.

    Cons

    The dreams for our students and families are so big that there is so much to do. The workplace is very busy, but everyone helps out and the culture is very supportive and there are many celebrations of individual and team achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the all-staff summits and encouraging exchange of ideas across the different program areas.
