    I have been working at Instituto Familiar de la Raza full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers that genuinely care about the community; feels like a family; located in the heart of the Mission; 13 paid holidays; 2 weeks of vacation for first 3 years and 15 days thereafter; 401(3)b Plan; if you have no dependents, the medical benefits are great because they are at a minimal cost to you.

    Cons

    The agency can sometimes feel like small cliques and there isn't too much interaction with other teams; there are minimal opportunities for professional advancement; you are often overworked to make-up for the lack of internal capacity in some areas and there seems to be little appreciation for your work.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more fun activities for the staff such as baseball games or other activities that are part of self-care.
