    Pros

    Managers and supervisors are friendly, and the work load isn't too heavy. The work load is only heavy depending on what time it is during the semester, but otherwise, the work is manageable.

    Cons

    Sometimes managers can be a little too hands on, but if you require a lot of guidance and explanation then it's nice, otherwise, it gets a little annoying after a while.

    Advice to Management

    If you give a task to someone, let them come to you with questions, don't continually ask how they are doing multiple times in one day.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, but very mission driven. This is a great place to work with passionate and ambitious students, and the ethos of the Y is always to push the boundaries and do better while remaining grounded in the mission.

    Cons

    There are only a few staff members, and although there is a lot of flexibility and ownership given to staff members, there are limitations because of the size of the organization. Really no cons though!

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give! Excellent management.

    Pros

    Academic freedom and hours. Supportive departmental administration and faculty. Family-friendly.

    Cons

    Salaries not as competitive as local private Universities and corporate and non-profit companies. Raises are rare because we are tied to the state budget and legislature. Many positions are frozen when people leave, and so those that remain incur more duties and responsibilities with less resources and financial incentive. Because of the above reasons, we are less competitive with other entities and are losing bright, essential staff and faculty members.
