    I worked at YMCA as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Buttoned up leadership. Clear strategic plan well-communicated to organization. Regular team events and meetings to keep morale up. Employees look to support one another.

    Cons

    Can be resistant to new ways of doing things as most of staff spent most/all of career within organization. Management agenda can be overly ambitious. Some sacred cows deep within culture make it harder to some positive change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify fewer top priorities and get those done well. Stay open-minded to new approaches.
