I worked at Edwin Gould Service for Children full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nonprofit foundation with an endowment that helps poor and underserved NY city kids by supporting organizations that line up with their mission to close the education achievement gap

Cons

Not much employee interaction in this closed enviroment of only 5 or 6 employees. Management has prying eyes into your computer use and will confront you about sites you visit if they feel they want to. There is no visual or audio privacy for admins who sit in the midst of this inner sanctum surrounded by higher ups who have offices. Admins and staff are preferred to be much younger because CEO is a "mothering" type who prys and offers unsolicited advice. Be prepared to add domestic duties like serving lunch, cleaning up break area and after board meetings (loading dishwasher) and restocking pantry to your administrative duties.

Advice to Management

Save the judgmental and busybody mothering for your own children...not appropriate or appreciated in the work environment.

    This agency is genuinely committed to helping families and they are good to their staff. The executive management regularly communicates with staff and makes everyone feel respected.

    This is a non profit organization so the salaries are low. Also, this is a small agency so there are few opportunities for advancement.
