    I have been working at ACCESS - Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    On the staff level, many people are devoted and committed to assisting those in need within the immediate community surrounding the organization.

    Cons

    Lack of identified organizational chart (who really makes the decisions) hired as a direct report but actually answered to many, at the top executive level conflicting ideas of what is the vision/mission, hostile work environment, lack of basic systems, employs motivated by fear, company rules and guidelines do not apply to all, subtle discriminatory attitude at the top level, lack of diversity at the management level. Very disappointing experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the organization's culture, mission and vision. Communicate clearly and effectively with employees, update systems, embrace change, address the organization's culture of cronyism, fear and ineffectiveness.

    Pros

    Many mid- and lower-level staff members are extremely dedicated to the important work of this organization but hampered by poor infrastructure and lack of respect.

    Cons

    Upper management is heirarchical -- dominated by special interests and huge egos that eclipse this organization's potential to do some really good work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage creative thinking; cultivate talent and develop a culture that appreciate and encourages staff

    Pros

    great opportunity to work and contribute to the company. Meet people from all over the metro-Detroit area and beyond.

    Cons

    With the Community Health & Research Center employment is very selective and often times plays favorites with who stays employed. Potential for growth is limited.
