    I have been working at YMCA as an intern for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The YMCA really cares about the community and its members.
    Employees can really gain a sense of the Y's core values, and develop themselves personally.
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees on company values. There are a lot of lessons to be learned from the core values
