I worked at Young Life

Pros

The people. It is very hard to find a better group of people to work with. Also the benefits are awesome. What can be better than a all staff conference in Florida every four years.

Cons

In my opinion there may not be a "clear" development plan for property staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help staff members stay healthy. Let them know it is ok to take some time for themselves. The summers can be rough and tiring.

    I have been working at Young Life

    Pros

    I have freedom of job scheduling.

    Cons

    too much of a corporate atmosphere. this is supposed to be a ministry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there are policies created for everything. it stifles the ability of field staff to pursue kids intentionally- younglife was founded on strategically entering communities, but now everything is s standardized. it's a disappointing departure from Jim Rayburns vision. Failure used to be key to figuring this thing out, risk, fail, risk more, succeed. now failure isn't tolerated, it's terminated.
