I have been working at Year Up full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people make Year Up, totally mission driven and 100% committed to making an impact. Innovative and fun working environment. Great benefits. The staff is very young because this is a great place to learn the ropes

Cons

If you want a life outside of work, this may not be the place for you. Run like a for profit corporation with out the for profit salary

    I have been working at Year Up full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Invested in developing staff members and promoting growth within the organization. Amazing CEO! Cares a lot about his employees

    Cons

    Can be selective on who they develop and how. Does not seem like everyone is granted the same opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent on the opportunities you grant to staff members. Be weary of unconscious biases you may have.

    Pros

    Awesome, talented, passionate staff Innovative, results-oriented program that works and keeps young adults at the center Excellent benefits

    Cons

    Long hours Senior management seems to value hiring MBA's over those with social service backgrounds, which has changed dynamics of how work gets done, the kind of work that is valued

    Advice to Management

    More support for career development pathways, especially for middle-level managers. Hard to see how to move up after that point.
