    I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs full-time

    Pros

    Doing good work for young people. Part of BGCA which is a great organization.

    Cons

    The quality of work done, the fund raising efforts and the fairness with which employees are treated is dependent on the Executive Director. There is a new Director so the jury is out on how successful he will be.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    communicate and make sure your employees have what they need to succeed. Frequent trainings and open lines of communication are a must. I think there also needs to be set rules for staff to follow when disciplining children. Some staff let children get away with more than others causing confusion.
