    I worked at Henry Street Settlement full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Henry Street has a great reputation in the community and a rich history of social service to draw from. Programs are built to be responsive to the needs of partnering stakeholders.

    Cons

    The organization has not been able to offer a high work-life balance for its employees and it could do better at valuing employees with tangible incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your middle managers and front-line staff and what their needs are and incorporate their feedback as much as that of clients and higher level management.
