Give a year. A really really long year.

I have been working at City Year

ProsCity Year has a great culture and is well known in the community. We get free access to movie theaters, discounts at restaurants, and leave work each day knowing that we have made a difference in the lives of others.

ConsIt's really difficult work. 11 hour days are more common that shorter days. It's been a challenging year for sure. The biggest issue I have is that you feel very very unsupported. That's the worst part of the job, by far.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere has to be some kind of better support given to corps members without sacrificing the mission. I think City Year needs to leave AmeriCorps in order to provide staff better support w/o losing out on the "Ed Award" given by AmeriCorps each year.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
