    I have been working at ACCESS (MI) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On the staff level, many people are devoted and committed to assisting those in need within the immediate community surrounding the organization.

    Cons

    Lack of identified organizational chart (who really makes the decisions) hired as a direct report but actually answered to many, at the top executive level conflicting ideas of what is the vision/mission, hostile work environment, lack of basic systems, employs motivated by fear, company rules and guidelines do not apply to all, subtle discriminatory attitude at the top level, lack of diversity at the management level. Very disappointing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Review the organization's culture, mission and vision. Communicate clearly and effectively with employees, update systems, embrace change, address the organization's culture of cronyism, fear and ineffectiveness.

    Pros

    ACCESS is a nationally recognized, award-winning organization. ACCESS has a sterling reputation within the nonprofit community. It has both regional (Detroit) and national programs. There is ample room for creativity, big thinking, and innovation within this organization. Some say ACCESS feels like a family (perhaps some might consider this a con).

    Cons

    Due to rapid growth, the organization has some growing pains that are being worked out. However, the long-term outlook is good. Low salary and long hours. While the medical benefits are good, the retirement options are disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on internal communications. It's a big organization with many departments doing vastly different work (health to employment and even a museum). That makes it a challenge to keep all abreast of organizational strategies and priorities, as well as policies and procedures.

    I have been working at ACCESS (MI) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (even if long time employees complain frequently!)
    Mission-driven work & dedicated coworkers
    Excellent place to network within the non-profit, metro-Detroit industry

    Cons

    New ideas are almost universally unsupported
    Quality in coordinators/managers is extremely inconsistent; most middle-managers are allowed to run their department in any way they want, even if it is a far cry from the values of the organization
    Good people are let go despite quality work; advancement, when possible, has very little to do with work performance

    Advice to Management

    Take more control of organizational culture by asking employees to review their managers/supervisors. There is some toxic middle-management in this organization that really runs counter to the direction the executive team is trying to move the organization in.
