I have been working at Boys & Girls Clubs

Pros

I have been with the organization for 7 years and have truly enjoyed my time here. The work pace is often hectic, but I have enjoyed the challenges and have grown my professional skills greatly. You can't find a better group of people anywhere!!

I find management to be more respectful of staff than in other places I've worked. BGCA does try to help employees create a job/life balance.

Cons

Being a non-profit, the salaries are not as high as in private industry. BGCA does offer good benefits that helps off-set the difference. With a new CEO in place, it will be interesting to see if the attitude toward 4 day work weeks and more telecommuting opportunites changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to make improvements in employee benefits, and readjust the corporate thinking with regard to commuting -- especially due to Atlanta traffic and high gas prices.

    I have been working at Boys & Girls Clubs

    Pros

    You get to do a job where you really feel you are helping youth and the community. You get to see progress being made, and the type of employees attracted to this type of work are great, so you get to work with the best people. There is plenty of creativity allowed.

    Cons

    You don't do this job to become rich. The compensation takes into consideration that this is a nonprofit. You may have days with more stress than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue offering more programs for the clubs. Offer out-of-thebox programming that will work right away, and can be adapted to individual club needs. Make it easy to come into this job and be successful.
