I have been working at Year Up full-time (more than an 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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Year Up full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Year Up has strong values and intelligent, driven leadership. They're redefining what it means to work at a nonprofit and are revolutionizing the workforce development space.

    Cons

    Like most nonprofits, their compensation does not compare to that of the private sector. They attract the brightest candidates, but cannot retain them for more than a few years due to the limitations in compensation that accompany their 501c3 status.
