    I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council as an intern

    Pros

    They have a worthwhile mission and have real impact on the Asian-American community. Everybody is very aware of the nonprofit's mission.

    Cons

    There are many locations, so there's not necessarily a company culture. It's hard to wrap your head around what CPC does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more strategic about execution & funding. Try to hire younger employees with fresher perspectives on nonprofit management.

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to unite different groups together.

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