    Pros

    Mission-based, good community support, flexibility, no micro-management, great cause, fun board of directors

    Cons

    Sometimes a little tough to shift organizational culture, donated office space is small, small budget- so have to run lean with no development staff, limited benefits due to size of organization

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and good management to work for.

    Cons

    The board members get too involved in the day to day function of staff. Never take responsible for their actions, and are quick to throw or blame staff for their mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Board members of organization need to stay out of the day to day operation of organization and not use position for personal gain or to influence mission of organization.

  6.  

    Workiing for the NYC end of the Nat'l Assoc. is poorly run, no room for growth, and most of all bad management.

    I worked at National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues, Inc. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There was a core group of employees who were strong, motivated, and did a good job. Former administration was well-run, committed, and a genuine concern for children/teens.

    Cons

    There was constant lay-offs. The new management made it impossible to enjoy going to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your employees, give him/her credit for an improvement, and stop firing.

    I worked at National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues, Inc.

    Pros

    Pay was alright for a temporary filler job if you have nothing else to do in the summer and the jobs itself are pretty mindless and simple

    Cons

    there is no real room for advancement because these arent really careers, you'll be working the same routine for a long time to come so get used to it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure the jobs offered are actual adding value to your company rather than just filing and paperwork whcih basically doesnt add anything

    Pros

    Enjoyed working outside in the nice weather and with the fantastic instructors. The kids were all energetic and it was a good time all around.

    Cons

    The senior management has no experience and very unprofessional. It was difficult to work with most members of the senior management due to continuous conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management.
