I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-great for those trying to get into the youth development field.
-can have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of youth who need it.

Cons

-toxic work culture that emphasizes over-work with little compensation or support.
-lack of clear goals or strategic plans.
- willingness to fudge data to make it appear as if the organization is doing more.
-high adult:child ratio which leads to several behavioral issues.
-minimal opportunities for advancement or professional development.
-upper management with little concern for how things work on the ground.
-both staff and programs are underfunded. Staff are expected to do a lot with little time, resources or back up support.
-clique-y, manipulative management.
-"jack of all trades, master of none."
-burn-out factory.
