    I worked at YMCA part-time

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. If you work in administration and work hard, you will learn a lot about how the business world works and all the politics behind a corporation.

    Cons

    They like to hire from outside for positions that those from within are qualified for. Pay is very low for all the work you do and they hide behind the "non-profit" title to make not change. It's hard for your voice to be heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within your company for rising stars and value your employees more (i.e. better pay, listen to their opinions_

    I worked at YMCA (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get to be an advocate for after school programs, mentor and help kids in low income areas

    Cons

    There is a whole lot of micromanagement from the central staff director and the program director is never around to answer questions or to assist in matters that pertain to the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership!
