    I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for the Chinese-American Planning Council for six years and I enjoyed my experience there. I was an ESL teacher and job developer. I learned a lot from my former director, J.C. and supervisor S.C. I made friends but most of all teaching my students was the greatest experience. I was laid off, but if I wasn't I would still work for them. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    There were some favoritism between teachers, and sometimes not being the same culture or race of the staff (predominately Chinese) made things tough to be fully accepted. I'm speaking from personal experience. Also, I wish being informed of my lay off was done in a professional manner.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with staff regarding pending lay offs, fair treatment of staff being let go (professionalism is a MUST), less favoritism, more acceptance of all people from all races and backgrounds.

    I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work Hours are very accommodating for college/graduate students pursuing a career in education. The work environment is very close knit, and almost like a family atmosphere. The site director at Chrystie Street is very supportive of her staff and allows a lot of creativity and autonomy in her staff to create and develop child centered curriculum.

    Cons

    compensation isn't great and you don't work many hours. It is an after school program after all, therefore about 15-20 hours a week.

    it's rewarding to see students who actually want to learn and display improvement over time.

    Learn how to unite different groups together.

    Pros

    The people are nice because of the laid back community service environment.

    Cons

    Haven't gotten a raise for a few years now. Not even to account for inflation.

    Advice to Management

    There's a lot to say. A lot of things are wrong and the internal politics is ridiculousness. A lot of good people who knows their stuff are leaving. Get your act together before you lose people who care about the organization and the people!!!
