    Pros

    Great to learn if you are just starting a new career and good for Chinese community. I heard some new management members are making a big difference and company environment is getting better from my friends. Good to help people.

    Cons

    Head of company needs to be changed. He just started. He is not around and doesn't listen to staff and care. Poor speaking. Not effective & doesn't know business.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new leader.

    Pros

    Management team is slowly changing and the environment seems to be getting better. Finance and HR is fairly new and making significant changes in the attitude and direction of the agency. Staff is also feeling more of a team and trying to work together.

    Cons

    Still a lot of work needs to be done in developing staff and hiring stronger individuals. Still need stronger management and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Hire stronger players and be open to change. Value old employees that have leadership and strength and try to keep them.

    Pros

    Programs and services are important to the community.

    Cons

    Lack of growth, change, and innovation. Lack of understanding of current nonprofit trends and importance of adapting to community changes. No room for growth and high turnover in staff. Every employee is disposable and executive management does not take into consideration the staff's opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Take input from the front line staff and be forward thinking.

    Pros

    Dental Clinic is good - dentists are passionate.

    Cons

    No accountability and lack of management/leadership. Management tends to show bias towards various staff members and departments. Doesn't take staff's opinions into consideration. Expects staff to work 12 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and less biased.

  6. Nice working environment.

    Be opened minded, take time to mentor employees and learn to be more flexible about adjusting to change.
