Funder focused organization comprised of teams that work separately, and with a large relative proportion of executives.
National Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 18, 2017
New Leaders supports its employees, compensates them well with salary and benefits, and allows them to have a functional work-life balance. However, New Leaders fails to connect the vast majority of its employees directly with the execution of its organizational mission, and most of the work being done at New Leaders does not directly impact the students served by New Leader trained principals. New Leaders also has a culture of teams interacting virtually, as many employees work from home. The most enjoyable part of working with this organization were the people who work there. I very much enjoyed team interaction and team retreats, which focused on reflection on personal work style and collaboration. Unfortunately, opportunities to meet face-to-face with teammates in this organization may be rare.

Wonderful experiences in leadership development. Work was centered around Principal internships in Prince George's County, Md. Supervision included onsite visits, one-to-one conferencing, relationship building with staff and mentor principals.

Skill development for me included opportunities to interact at both the national and local level with known experts in the field of educational leadership.

Non-Profit committed to creating better schools for disadvantaged Youth
National Director of Facilities (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 20, 2012
Being in the Facilities department does not afford me an opportunity to get really involved with the programs that are a part of the Organization, but overseeing the 8 offices, managing the day to day and negotiating with vendors for most cost effective products and creating a comfortable; fun environment for the employees make me feel as though I am also contributing to the great work this Organization is accomplishing.
