    I have been working at Chinese American Service League full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice coworkers in general. A workplace where you can learn a lot about cultural differences. Easy access to Chinese foods.

    Cons

    Expect cultural clashes (primarily Western vs. Chinese) at work. Many aspects of the organization are not quite able to keep pace with the contemporary business practices.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Chinese American Service League

    Pros

    Flexible hours and a do-as-you-can schedule system. There isn't too much of an obligation other than "do your best," given that I was a community organizer.

    Cons

    There is really no structure to this side of the system. There are many services offered in the structured organization proper, but doing political work for CASL is honestly a nightmare. The pay is silly, management is sure how to guide you, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Really do your homework on political science before you start managing entry level community organizers who need training. Otherwise, mandate training with ICCIR or a cousin organization to give them the experience needed to do what they are supposed to do.

      I worked at Chinese American Service League

      Pros

      The upper management staff is very friendly and very willing to help new employees.

      Cons

      Some of the senior workers are ignorant to people who come in and seek help. A lot of gossip goes on during work time.
