    I have been working at Henry Street Settlement full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work providing services to the client in the community surrounding the organization and outside of it. I have met some amazing people here and values some of the relationships I have made with my coworkers. When you learn how to work together the work you do is rewarding.

    Cons

    Unfortunately management does not realize and value the hard work that comes from their employees. Most of the time there is no room for growth and a strong need to develope better communication. Management gets most of the raises while staff in lower positions struggle with poor pay and work just as hard. Management fails to communicate properly with their staff and seems not to care either. HR is not there to support staff even though they try to make it seem that they are. Very disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. You can learn from them. Salary increases are definitely needed. Communication is everything.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. enjoyed the experience and hope they continue to help servicing the community as they have the past few years.

    I worked at Henry Street Settlement full-time

    Pros

    Nice staff, and pleasant interview.

    Cons

    Disorganized, poor communication and lacking in ethical and professionalism in a sense where I was hired, and HR never called me in. No one emailed me to alert me to any changes. If you are looking for work and overstand the essentials of haivng an income and doing meaningful work, this type of management style is direspectfull to say the least. I was fully disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, follow through regardless of changes so you build healthy relationships with potential employees. You never know who you are turning away. People seeking empoyment are human too. Don't forget that.
