    A place where you can make a difference

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsSometimes 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

    Nice people to work with. Staff are friendly and hospitable.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Jupiter, FL

    ProsFriendly co-workers and good management to work for.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementBoard 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.

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

    Director (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThere 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your employees, give him/her credit for an improvement, and stop firing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Just a job, not a career

    Site Monitor (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsPay 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

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

    Treated very poorly by the owner.

    Tennis Instructor (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementGet new management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
