    I worked at Grand Street Settlement part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the community is close. The supervisors create a friendly and fun environment to work in. They were flexible with hours and very understanding when you had an emergency.

    Cons

    At times it felt as though there were too many counselors in a classroom and then other times where it felt like there wasn't enough.

    Advice to Management

    I think that they should have scheduled their summer interns to work evenly throughout the 2 months so they would have more staff available during the last couple weeks of the camp.

    I have been working at Grand Street Settlement full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very open to change. Work at a community school and I've been able to start girls group and hopefully starting a parent support group.

    Cons

    Low salary. Being one of two social workers and working with both middle school and high students I think we should have a higher salary.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay.

    Feeling like you're making a difference
    Reasonable work hours

    Cons

    Nepotism

    They expect a lot simply because of the demographic they work with.

    Advice to Management

    You need to show your lower level employees appreciation
    There should be more insentive for lower level employees
