    Pros

    If you don't mind a slow work environment with slow people then it's a great place to work. Thry do have a nice .retirement plan

    Cons

    Every staff meeting, gathering you are asked to donate money of your already low salary and constantly approached to volunteer at all their events. If you don't they make you feel horrible that you want to spend time with your own family instead of the YMCA family. Suggestions to improve and change are welcome but very slow to be implemented if at all.

    Advice to Management

    Stop asking at EVERY meeting for contributions. Help staff that wants changes by pushing other staff members to respond to requests.

    Pros

    The best part about my YMCA was the people and working with the community. You meet a lot of people and families.

    Cons

    Poor salary. Most people with salaries would've been better off having an hourly rate because it takes so much of your time.
