      I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The staff is very supportive, the environment is suitable for entry level and student workers, convenient location, a variety of programs to specialize

      Cons

      little to no opportunity for growth, low pay, small office

      Advice to Management

      There should be more ways to appreciate the various departments that have bigger workloads with more benefits or better wages. Under the Case Planning department, the workload is often overlooked.

      I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      While I cannot say for most non-profit organization, looking back, there were a lot of things that I took for granted that I realized was valuable for someone who was looking for opportunities to grow at a work place environment with any background. These included professional coworkers and supervisors who were polite and respectful in educating, training and dealing with new coworkers who have made mistakes. There...

      Cons

      The most obvious would probably be low pay and occasional overtime depending which department you worked in. But despite these drawbacks, it should not steer anyone from working here. Reason being this place has great culture and make sure the workers are appreciated for the work they do. Furthermore despite the low pay, there are some who have work here for years before moving on due to the friendly environment which...

      Advice to Management

      I cannot say due to my short time frame in the organization. But I can say, keep up the good work. The work culture is something to be respected. Perhaps expand, but that is asking a little bit too much since a lot of their funding is government based which greatly determines its programs and how much staff they can have at a given time.

      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Chinese-American Planning Council part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - you will learn a lot about handling children - some staff are nice and accommodating - kids are rewarding to work with

      Cons

      - cliquey teachers divided into groups are usually a bad sign of an unhealthy work environment. - There are either very hardworking teachers or extremely lazy teachers - co-workers can be cold, excluding and gossipy - management does not seem to care about employees, give credit or appreciate your efforts - little to no growth, very static environment

      Advice to Management

      Try to hire more competent teachers who actually care about the students or at least provide proper guidelines to educating children instead of dismissing internal problems. The toxic environment is what's driving away many of your teachers. Get rid of internal affairs and be more professional to the employees.
