    I worked at JCC in Manhattan part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It really feels like a true community.
    Even if you are an employee you still have access to everything that a regular member has.
    It's a very easygoing atmosphere and a great working environment year-round, everyone is very flexible and understandable when it come to working conditions.
    Very easy to talk to superiors

    Cons

    There are no cons I could think of about the JCC. It's a great place to be.
    One thing though is that the building has been around for over 10 years, and there have not been too many changes to the interior and the facilities of the building. It would be nice to see some more improved renovations.

    I worked at JCC in Manhattan full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Gym benefits
    - Some very dedicated individuals invested in the mission

    Cons

    - Racism: I experienced multiple racist remarks, assumptions, and decisions made by senior management.
    - Company culture encourages people to stay until 6pm even if they were efficient and got their work done within the 7 hours of the day. They do not respect or reward a good work ethic.
    - VERY few advancement prospects: Someone who had been there for 5 years working at a miserably low salary moved to a different department that she had no experience in, where she got a measly increase in pay. They are all about the time served (like jail) rather than actually being qualified.
    - People with children are given MUCH more leeway in terms of coming in on time, leaving early, etc. If you are a single, unmarried person with no kids, you will be treated significantly differently.
    - TERRIBLE record-keeping: When donors ask for a full, accurate accounting of their gifts, lifetime donations, it is quite difficult to get the information easily since there are such lax accounting and data standards.
    - WAY too many people who are completely ineffectual, and, due to their time there, largely complacent. There are also way too many people with the same job title (marketing) who seem to do nothing, especially if their family members are on the board.
    - The cafe on the first floor is disgusting, but everyone must use it for all catering needs.
    - There is no real strategic plan for the organization nor is there any accountability for decisions in upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get a strategic plan.
    - Have sensitivity training mandatory for all staff.
    - Treat everyone equally, even if they are a minority, a woman, or don't have kids.
    - Invest in a Chief Data Officer Chief Administrative Officer to streamline and improve the data landscape throughout the organization.
    - Don't keep ineffectual and complacent people on staff just because they have been there a long time or they are married to, related to, or friends with a board member.
    - Watch out for IRS audits -- you're a prime target since your financial standards are so ... flexible.
    - Respect work-life balance and don't shame people who leave at 5pm when their work is finished.
