A great learning place.
House Manager (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYFebruary 1, 2017
Extremely high rate of turnover. Great if you want to learn on the job with a higher than average salary. Retention is a big issue, but one that the park is working on. There is also a strategic plan to raise wages and offer more opportunities for growth.

Pastoral workplace with good pay and great management.
Working under Landscape Architect Crystal Gaudio (Current Employee) –  Prospect ParkMay 30, 2013
Typically, my day working with the Lakeside Center landscape effort includes planting trees, shrubs and herbaceous plant material. Additionally, I am expected to identify desirable and undesirable weeds, follow architectural landscape blueprints, and assist in the assembly of irrigation systems.

I work from Monday through Friday, from 8 am - 4 pm. The landscape architects for whom I work are kind, courteous and eager to pass on knowledge they feel will facilitate a pedagogical environment. As all of the work is done in the southeastern area of Prospect Park, I am able to ride my bike to and from- which compounds upon the active lifestyle necessary to perform work such as this.

With about a week to go until planting, and thus, the job, ends- I could not be more satisfied.
