    Former Employee - Program Director in Boston, MA

    I worked at YMCA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great mission and one of the best run nonprofits in Eastern Massachusetts. I was given the opportunity to grow and develop through great management training programs. We have a GLBT group run by a guy in the Metro office and it's excellent. There are affinity groups if you want to get involved and grow your career.

    Cons

    Pay scales can be a little low and there is always pressure to fund raise. Budgets can be tight and that impedes quality programming, particularly in after-school programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with the rank and file employees. We make it happen every day.
