    I worked at 92nd Street Y full-time

    Pros

    Innovative programming and incredible colleagues.

    Cons

    Management self-involved and unsupportive of staff's day to day efforts. Too much empire building at the top and not enough collaboration with the folks doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Listen to feedback from folks on the ground.

    Pros

    Inspiring mission. Incredible programming. Fantastic teamwork amongst those who produce the work.

    Cons

    Incredibly political (odd for a community center that should be about community). No opportunity for individual growth. Management team who operate as a clique (remember high school).

    Advice to Management

    Talk with your teams. Everyone. Not just your favorites.

    I worked at 92nd Street Y part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing and exciting programming, classes, and events, diverse and supportive staff, and stimulating work environment. If you enjoy educational and cultural programming this organization has a lot to offer. 92Y moves at a very fast pace, as there is a lot usually going on at the same time so there is never really a dull moment.

    Cons

    The pay is very low for part-time staff. In my case, it was too low to continue and unfortunately, I had to resign due to another opportunity that had conflicting workday hours with my role. Outside of this, I would still very much recommend working for the organization.

    Advice to Management

    My one piece of advice is to find a way to possibly increase pay for part-staff or consider other company perks or incentives that show employees they are valued and their hard work to keep the organization running is appreciated.

    Pros

    Really makes you feel like you are part of something important.

    Cons

    Management is pretty much non-existent. One can learn more about the leadership and their efforts through trade publications, than as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in management by offering some serious professional development courses, you owe it to the more junior staff. Act in a professional manner in every situation, not just when in front of board members or world leaders.
