    They provide unique service in NYC. People with Asian language skills (Chinese, Korean, Japanese) have a good chance to be employed here. Good location. Friendly working environment.

    As all NGOs, financial problems, not enough staff, etc. Although work load is not usually huge, you usually have to do things outside of your described work title.

    Pros

    If you are looking to work for a non-profit agency that works with pre-school children and the elderly and you want to give something back to the community then this would be a good place to work.

    Cons

    Teachers are moved around to much especially if teams are not getting along. There is too much catfighting and backbiting and discrimination. There is no support system in place. Staff that has been there for more then 20 years are overlooked for promotion. The Administrative Director over the Pre-school program operates on dysfunction and disorganization and is the cause of most of the problems there.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at who you have in charge and re-evaluate their postion there. Be more supportive with your staff and
    give a helping hand when it is needed and be fair.
