Employees rate Washington 50% lower than the overall average
I worked at YWCA full-time (Less than a year)
Great miss and ambitious overall goals. Felt good to work for an org who said they cared about the well-being of women and girls of color.
Hardly any opportunities for professional development, and there seems to be high turnover. A lot of wage secrecy, which doesn't bode well for an org who claims they care about equal pay. Very small staff, which at least for me made things really difficult. And for a long time, there was no Human Resources Department
Advice to Management
For God's sake, OFFER PAID MATERNITY LEAVE TO YOUR STAFF. It is shameful to be an organization that advocates for other organizations to offer these kind of benefits, and not even offer it to your own staff. Absolutely inexcusable, no way around that. Offer more opportunities for professional growth and development, and hire managers who value that. Be clear about your expectations for staff, and be up front when those expectations change instead of not saying anything and setting people up to fail.
