    Their are times were there is not much going on for interns and then there is a sudden rush when people come in for paychecks. It can throw you off sometimes.

    Pros

    QCUL can give you experience in working with youth, understanding career development, and learning program management (budgeting, building partnerships, etc.)

    Cons

    Leadership needs to change ways. There is little value for professional development. I never was supported for wanting to attend a conference, for example, and had to hide the fact I taking courses. I think its because they don't keep staff members very long. Three years or so, and you're usually out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good management can add value. Pay attention to programs so that crises don't occur. The culture is a bit too stifling. Encourage innovation and understand that risk sometimes mean failure.

    The ability to help those in need and the flexibility to get things done the way you think is best

    Cons

    Because it is a non profit organization salaries and job stability are very dependent on the amount of funding available from year to year

    Pros

    Supposedly strong history of helping African Americans reach economic equality

    Cons

    Extremely high rate of turnover because they treat their employees like dirt. their housing dept is in shambles and they have a supervisor that doesn't know the programs. Very poor organization. They are an embarrassment to the parent company in NY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CEO.

    The Las Vegas Urban League does good work for the community

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The Las Vegas Urban League does good work in the community to help the underserved. If you want to make a difference in the lives of people in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas then the Las Vegas Urban League is a good place to work.

    Cons

    The Las Vegas Urban League has unneeded bureaucracy. The benefits are not that great and the pay is not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more and better benefits to employees.
