    Pros

    Schedule is flexible and staff are very friendly. Since it's a non-profit, the working environment is lay-back and co-workers are generally supportive. The Center is well connected with local agencies and hospitals, so there are opportunities to make connection with people outside of the organization.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. Very low considering NYC living standard. Benefits aren't that great either. The worst part is that there's no room to grow for a junior person. Most of senior staff are too comfortable to move. People stuck in the middle have no room to advance, hence people in the bottom either stay in the bottom forever or leave. The turn-over rate for junior staff is extremely high.

    Pros

    well-established health center with a lot of great hard working staff

    Cons

    some mismanagement/micromanagement, depends on who you have, that can impede creativity or growth
    a lot of different activities going on at once so all departments are incredibly busy all the time
    some departments are understaffed and backed up
    no clear path for growth/promotions

    Pros

    Good people, good salary, flexible hours, work at your own pace. Good place to develop cultural competency as it serves primarily low-income Asian populations.

    Cons

    Politics and bureaucracy can sometimes stifle creativity and motivation. Promotions are rare and raises limited. Not sure if hard work and long hours are rewarded with better pay.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your staff member's creativity and integrate ideas to improve organization and capacity to provide excellent care. Broaden organizational mission. Reward good employees (nominated by supervisors) of all levels with promotions/raises/bonuses.

    Pros

    Good benefits (including health plus dental insurance and paid vacation for full-time workers), overall friendly environment, good for transition between school and work in healthcare for recent college graduates

    Cons

    Exclusive environment if you don't understand Cantonese (for the Chinatown site) but you are Asian (e.g. if you are Mandarin-speaking only or Korean) since 90% of staff speak Cantonese in private. Pay and workload are very disproportional, you will most likely be underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Better staff management and work distribution. Better prioritizing of projects and tasks that are not necessary for funding. Better communication between staff and supervisor.

    Pros

    Flexible work time, easy task, internet friendly. No pressure, you can manage your own time to finish a assignment, and it usually takes a long long time, which means you have more time to do your own stuff.

    Cons

    No promotion, you can see your life in a 30 years, not for a aggressive young person who has a bigger dream, this job is for elderly people or family mom who is seeking a financial stability and flexible work time.

    Advice to Management

    The managers here are variable, some are competent, but some are not. They don't have a very clear promotion policy, then you can work 10 years without a single raise.
