Pros

At the time I worked for GCSAA Steve Mona was the CEO. It was an amazing place to work with so many dedicated staff members and wonderful superintendent members. I loved my manager and director and grew tremendously as an employee under their guidance.

Cons

There have been significant changes in the executive staff and reductions in the overall staff since I left. GCSAA is known for never settling and frequently reorganizes the staff in an effort to find perfection. This is often unsettling for the staff and doesn’t usually lead to increased efficiency. I also found the salaries were much lower as compared to other assocations in the Kansas City area.

    Pros

    Lawrence,KS is a nice town. Location of company is a plus.
    Upper management pleasant and easy to talk to - down to earth.

    Cons

    They don't pay very well at all.
    My personal experience was tainted because I had a horrible manager.
    Under utilized
    Not a challenging job.
    Very little room to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the way mid level managers relate to their employees. My manager was disliked by her entire staff save maybe one person.

  2. Toxic Atmosphere

    Pros

    As non-profits go, it tends to be a solid performer in an interesting industry. There are always new projects that helps keep things interesting.

    Cons

    There are constant structure shake ups, mass staff layoffs, pay freezes, even furloughs. The atmosphere is so negative that it is impossible to succeed. Employees are not given an opportunity to perform or advance. Management is not to be trusted.
