    Was extremely happy at first, but after management changed, favortism and cronyism took the place of all that was right

    I worked at YMCA

    Pros

    The members are wonderful, appreciative people. It gives back to the community which is always a good thing. I loved working in an environment promoting health and wellness.

    Cons

    There is no consistency between the 18 branches of YMCA's in the Valley of the Sun. Rules are followed only when it served the interest of upper management. There is a disturbing level of incompetence and disregard within the leadership of several branches. Dedicated and competent employees often are treated badly, even if they are doing an excellent job and the members love them. At one branch in particular, that matters not. Several people were let go in an effort to cover the incompetence of the director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Valley of the Sun needs to open its eyes to what is going on at each individual branch. Question the loss of good employees. Listen to members and staff when there are concerns, and fix the problem. Do not allow corruption and cover-ups to continue.
