Decent non-profit undergoing immense change
Staff Member (Former Employee) –  BostonDecember 31, 2017
Decent non-profit undergoing immense change. There is often poor leadership, but they try really hard to remedy it. The focus is no longer on the clientele it used to serve, but this is primarily because of DPH and not AAC.

Love the atmosphere and mission statement, but glad I left.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAOctober 7, 2017
You can work very hard, put in extra hours, implement loss prevent tactics, cover for people who call out constantly, dog a job not listed on your job description and STILL be taken for granted. Wouldn't suggest this place as stepping stool as so much a nice bench to sit on for a while. I wish it was better, it was still fun to work at, but I hope they give their employees benefits and give promotions to those who deserve it.

Many changes makingit a challenging place to work. Funding cuts, staffing cuts and freezes, as well as the merger with Fenway Health impacted morale
Director of Client Services (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 12, 2017
Unfortunately, due to public health funding cuts, my position was eliminated and I was laid off on March 31, 2017.

Several other positions are vacant due to a hiring freeze.

Staff morale is very low as a result of this, and the changes brought by the merger with Fenway Health, as well as new standards of outcomes by DPH.
Pros
Compettive benefits
Cons
funding cuts, staffing freezes, lay offs, high staff turnover

Fun place to work
Program Evaluation Data Specialist (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAApril 25, 2015
AAC is an agency where the workers genuinely care about the work they do. It is a people centered organisation where workers are friendly and eager to help each other and clients. The most enjoyable part of my work is the friendly interaction I have with other staff members and clients. I have learnt the value of the human heart and compassion.

Very diverse working environment, culturally and ethnically
Library Volunteer/Intern (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJune 29, 2013
. Be prepared for the unexpected needs of a client.
. To always listen to clients and staff.
. Never be intimidated by management, they might like to hear your
ideas and concerns about the pros and cons of the business.
. Communicate with all co-workers in a very respectable and
responsible manner.
. The hardest part of the job, is when you can not meet the client
basic needs.
. The most enjoyable part, is seeing the clients meet their
accomplished goals
