Pros

You get paid to have fun and learn with the kids. The Y also offers great training sessions (when the funds are available).

Cons

Communication throughout the Y is not very efficient.

    Pros

    Great people, positive experiences, benefits are bad. I like that we had a central mission that drives all of our work. I felt like the work we did made a difference.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor and is only getting worse. Everything is becoming about profits and revenue. Members and lower level employees are being hung out to dry. The level of turnover is simply amazing. People are seeing the future of the company and are leaving at lightning speed. Either that or they're being replaced by people with less education and experience all for the sake of saving money. I've never in my life have seen so much back biting and lying at a company. It's sad.

    Advice to Management

    Yes profits are important, but please take time to consider your employees and members first. If you don't make them happy, you'll see your profits steadily decrease.

    Pros

    Flexible with college students, good pay, good schools

    Cons

    Supervisors are not very educated. Less educated person in supervising me, I do not agree. Spell check is needed for these employees.
