    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.

    I worked at Asian Human Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall great staff and a good place to gain decent experience.

    Cons

    A lot of corruption at this agency, mainly at the management level. Salaries are extremely low and employees are overworked at times. Staff is treated poorly and disrespected by most leadership and management. There is very poor communication between Directors (specifically in the Community Health Program) and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in an entire new management team and make major changes to this agency. Also, learn to treat your staff with respect.

    I worked at Asian Human Services full-time

    Pros

    Close to public transportation. Lax environment. Small size does lend itself to closer relationships with co-workers.

    Cons

    Pay scale could be much, much better. Poor communication between departments. Low staffing leads to work overloads and double position duties. No opportunity for career growth. Poor benefits; no 401k match and rather high medical premiums.

    Advice to Management

    Revise budgets to ensure adequate staff and resources at each department.

    Pros

    Highly competent and dedicated staff who care about clients

    Cons

    Dysfunctional and Abusive Management.
    The Controller has never attended college yet supervises staff with MBA's, and earns a huge salary because she is the CEO's friend. She spends large amounts grant monies on food and parties. She makes her own rules for one or two staff that she likes. She allows them extra days off and allows them to come to work at any time. She is abusive to other staff.

    Advice to Management

    Find managers that are honest, respect their staff and manage to benefit the organization versus themselves.
    Get rid of managers that abuse their power and authority

    Pros

    great co workers and wonderful services for clients. Paid time off & holidays are nice.

    Cons

    upper management bureaucracy and complete disregard for their employees. Everyone is so demoralized but only stay for the clients. Not only is the pay painfully low, but just the way they treat their employees is horrendous. Everyone is required to keep their mouths shut out of fear and many people have gotten fired for trying to any kind of progressive changes or speaking their mind. Be Careful if you get hired here and choose to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider employee and community morale. Toxic environments create poor work; and it trickles down from upper management.
