    Head Teacher at Chrystie Street Daycare

    Former Employee - Head Teacher in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Head Teacher in New York, NY

    I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work Hours are very accommodating for college/graduate students pursuing a career in education. The work environment is very close knit, and almost like a family atmosphere. The site director at Chrystie Street is very supportive of her staff and allows a lot of creativity and autonomy in her staff to create and develop child centered curriculum.

    Cons

    compensation isn't great and you don't work many hours. It is an after school program after all, therefore about 15-20 hours a week.

    Pros

    it's rewarding to see students who actually want to learn and display improvement over time.

    The management wasn't good enough. Each class acts as an individual entity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to unite different groups together.

    I have been working at Chinese-American Planning Council

    Pros

    The children and the staff (not including management) keep employees

    Management doesn't care for employees, upper management constantly pushing for unrealistic goals, your work is never appreciated, nothing you do is never enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way you treat your employees

  7.  

    A very supportive staff. The work you do makes a difference.

    Pros

    The people are nice because of the laid back community service environment.

    Cons

    Haven't gotten a raise for a few years now. Not even to account for inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a lot to say. A lot of things are wrong and the internal politics is ridiculousness. A lot of good people who knows their stuff are leaving. Get your act together before you lose people who care about the organization and the people!!!

    Vacation and health insurance consider good, but pay is way too low.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council full-time

    Pros

    The amount of vacation employees have is pretty high, vacation days are rollovers, health insurance is decent, work area consider decent size.

    Cons

    Pay is way too low. Company a bit messy, boxes everywhere, not too organized, not too confidential. Some employees are a little rude, and nosy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If employee treat company like family/home, should use one day to clean up the company. There are desk where no staff stays, should get rid of those and use the space wisely. Better/upgrade drawers so that documents are put more confidential, and looks nicer and less messier.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council

    Pros

    You can help others and give back, especially if you are part of the NYC Chinese-American community. Most of the people are friendly and there is a sense of community. Great vacation and health coverage.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low and there's tons and tons of paperwork to take care of. It is somewhat standard with the environment. Limited opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do additional training for employees and cross training. Be transparent about what is going on throughout the organization.
