    I regret working there

    Current Employee - Manager  in  Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Manager in Boston, MA

    Pros

    The pension contribution is really the only decent benefit they provide.

    Cons

    The pay is not good, and generally the organization is just poorly managed. There is always a budget crisis, which ends in layoffs or cutbacks in hours for hourly staff. If you are on salary they make you work long hours, and expect you to be there nights and weekends. Top management is often unprofessional. I found there to be a strong undercurrent of homophobia.

    Ok if you need a job, but not very great overall.

    Former Employee - Lifeguard in Tucson, AZ

    Pros

    Fun environment, access to gym, free pool etc.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees. Long tedious work schedules. Just as a lifeguard I was supposed to clean and manage the whole pool/locker rooms. Clean all the bathrooms in the building. Help out with child care. Make donor calls. Participate in local events. Mostly about non profit help, which is fine unless you need money.
