    I have been working at National Hispanic Council on Aging

    Pros

    An amazing organization that supports and enhances the quality of life for Hispanic older adults, their families, and their communities.
    To visit one of NHCOA housing facilities encourages all to keep working for those less fortunate.
    Overall, a great professional and friendly environment to work, to learn, and to grow!

    Cons

    There should be more programs that would cover each of the country’s states since there are many older Hispanic adults living in remote rural areas within the country who desesperately need to improve their quality of life as they deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great leadership that inspires others to work and continue working on improving the quality of life for older Hispanic adults.
    A great senior management that encourages and supports the rest of NHCOA team to do their job.

    I worked at National Hispanic Council on Aging

    Pros

    In theory, it seems like an competent, relevant organization. It is a good starting point for young professionals who want to be involved in Latino organizations, due to the networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Most of the resources are dedicated into fundraising, and almost none to production, or creation of programs. Also, there is a very bizarre culture of power distance to upper management. President/CEO has a tendency to arrive late or not at all to meetings and interviews.

    Pros

    It is a culturally diverse place to work with a good mission.
    It's small and the employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Bad benefits with below average salary. You must get your benefits offer in writing or you may have a hard time getting what you were promised.
    No opportunity for advancement within the organization. Unless the President or Vice President leave, there is no hope of moving up within the organization.
    There is very little job security.
    High turnover rate of employees.
    Employees are expected to go beyond what is described in their job description but are not rewarded for their efforts. Also, there is no compensatory time given to employees when they work beyond the 40hour work week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with each other and with employees.
    Focus on the mission of the organization and not on trying to look like a large national organization. With less than ten employees, the organizational should try to produce a few high quality programs instead of several low quality programs that have little impact on the community.
    Reward your employees for the hard work that they do.
