Does YMCA have a pension plan?

Pros

YMCA of the USA has good health benefits and a rare pension plan. People really do care about community and about giving back.

Cons

Last year Y-USA hired a new CIO. Unfortunately, he came from a org with a department of over 500 IT workers and painfully reminded everyone that he previously had 2 assistants. At the time of his hire, the total IT staff was 6 and the rest on furlough. As the pandemic progressed the new leader setup goals that were unobtainable by the small team in place that was already over stressed keeping the core operations and applications in place. This stress finally caused the complete failure of IT leadership where now all existing directors of IT tenured their resignation and more junior staff have started to follow in their wake. This IT department is not one to work for under current leadership. Steer clear unless you like projects given to you at 6pm due the next morning, 80 hour work weeks, a manager that keeps a log of of your faults and replays them at a whim and another wise sad environment where there is zero trust.

Advice to Management

Unfortunately, the signs and symptoms of this mass departure was highly visible and ignored by the CIO. The CIO has his own agenda. Worse, other leaders are shocked at what is going on, but no one has acted to correct this. The culture of the Y at the leadership level is beyond toxic and that unfortunately is a major loss for the Y movement.

Does YMCA offer a wellness program?

Pros

Wellness benefits are great, friendly staff

Cons

The board was not very diverse and neither was leadership. Did not prioritize social service programs and only prioritized gym. Laid off so many people in COVID, resulting in them losing their health insurance. Ironic for a health org.
