    I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The community is fantastic, as the organization truly cares for their employees and wants to see everyone succeed. The relationships between the families served and the employees is highly rewarding and people are often grateful for the services provided. People who genuinely care about what they do and who they work with and for. Great professional development. Matching 401-k program.

    Cons

    The health insurance, while provided, was bare bones and employee retention wasn't always very high (possibly due to salary) so employees often had to pick up slack in other areas which could lead to struggle with work-life balance.
