Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Jewish Community Center as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Friendly people, great work environment. Working independently and with a team of highly skilled and motivated individuals.

Cons

I wish this job was not temporary, because I had fun working there, and felt like I was a part of a growing cultural center.

    Pros

    Diverse community--many cultures and all ages. Scholarship awards. Employee Appreciation Week. Fitness center discount. Cultural events: films, music, plays, contests. Relaxed dress code and atmosphere. Serving members who are grateful for all the center offers, especially the elderly.

    Cons

    Low pay is typical for a non-profit community center. Sometimes rigid rules prevent employee initiative and creativity. Some managers have been there for over 20 years, which sometimes leads to an automatic response of "we have always done it this way." But it also means that there are experienced managers who really know the ins and outs.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to more ideas from employees about possible changes to improve. Provide a confidential way for employees to make suggestions. At the annual meeting, show employees how some of their ideas were acted upon in the past year and what a great difference they made (saving money, better service to members, making the work easier). Pay a few employees (representing different departments) to attend committee meetings held four times a year to discuss how to implement any changes that affect the workers. Publish the positive results in an employee news letter.
