    I have been working at Sponsors For Educational Opportunity full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of organizations dedicated to student equity and college access, but truly none has the results that SEO does. The amount of care and dedication put into their programming is incredible and the results speak for themselves: 100% of SEO Scholars are accepted to college, and 95% graduate. Beyond working with some of the most incredible students in NYC, the staff at SEO is a strong draw. Approachable, intelligent, and beyond dedicated to the program and its students. Management is supportive but also let's you take ownership of your projects and create and make a lasting impact.

    Plus the organization is growing at an incredible rate, so they are actively looking for people who can help them continue to raise the bar.

    Cons

    People are incredibly dedicated to the work and the students, so work days frequently linger past 6. Initially, I was hesitant about the Tuesday-Saturday schedule that some positions require, but Saturday Academy is a true highlight of my experience. I look forward to spending a full day with the students all week long

    Pros

    High expectations of young people in all programs and willing to do what it takes to help them meet those expectations. Flexible and understanding managers who are invested in your success and growth within org. Really nice and passionate people work here

    Cons

    some openings are not filled fast enough - sort of understand because better to have role vacant than hire wrong person. this sometimes causes strain on remaining staff but at same time pulls us together

    Advice to Management

    figure out how to fill open positions faster

    Pros

    The students of SEO are really motivated and they are easy to work with. The SEO stuff care a lot about their students and the quality of the staff. The salary is good compared to other non-profits and they pay the time you spend with preparation for the classes.

    Cons

    They need me only few hours a week.

    Pros

    Kids are dynamite but you need experience in classroom management, or it'll take longer for you to get your work done and you likely won't enjoy it.

    Cons

    Turnaround on grading is a bit too quick.

    Pros

    The scholars program admits some of the brightest and sweetest students that you will ever meet who want to build relationships with staff. Also, their mission is truly honorable.

    Cons

    Tasks can become monotonous and boring. Supervisors are unappreciative and want a work horse rather than an employee.

    Pros

    Alumni of the programs are an interesting bunch of people.

    Cons

    Supervisor regularly demoralized staff and then represented our ideas as her own. She's no longer there, though, but administration seemed to turn a blind eye.
