    I have been working at Asian Human Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice working environment! Coworkers are friendly and supportive. Clientele is usually nice and motivated to gain employment. Empowering work!

    Cons

    Lack of department meetings. Clear approaches and explaination of case managment and operations would be helpful. The lack of this may cause unnessecary stress during yearly auditings.

    Advice to Management

    More meetings.

    Pros

    You meet a lot of people that really need the supportive services at AHS and it's really rewarding to be part of that support system

    Cons

    Everything is very disorganized and responsibilities will be pushed onto you with no say.

    I have been working at Asian Human Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many of the lower level employees care deeply about the work that they're doing

    Cons

    Management is out-of-touch and has no conception of the daily work. Hard work is not rewarded. High employee turnover and burn-out. Employees are asked to take on more and more work without any additional compensation. New programs and initiatives that could benefit clients are never given a chance. All management wants to do is make money, even to the point of treating clients unethically. Benefits are not on par with similar social service agencies.

    I have been working at Asian Human Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hardworking, honest and dedicated staff

    Cons

    The CEO and CFO are BFF's and only care about spending money for themselves. They are ineffective and inexperienced leaders and do not lead by example. The CEO always used the F word.
    We are not allowed to buy birthday cakes to celebrate employees birthdays but the CFO allowed two birthday cakes to be purchased for the CEO.
    The board does not care to solve problems at AHS.
    New CEO is Dr. Craig Maki.

    Advice to Management

    Get better leaders to lead the agency.
