Staff work hard and care very much for the clients and the work. Limitations imposed by funders.

I have been working at Focus for Ethnic Women part-time for more than 3 years

ProsWomen and immigrant positive atmosphere. No negative male-dominated office culture. Small enough to know all staff and maintain friendly acquaintances. The staff are committed to supporting women, immigrants, and visible minorities succeed despite declining support from funders and community. Front-line work with clients is very fulfilling and meaningful. New office is a great space. Programming is effective and good for the community.

ConsNo benefits. Wage freeze. Fixed one-year contracts and staff turnover. Disconnect between Board's direction and the work of Staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not forget the importance of staff and agency morale in the day to day work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
