    I worked at YMCA full-time

    Pros

    The YMCA members and lower-level employees always made working for this organization worth while.

    Cons

    The lack of care for the employees. This particular YMCA is the Walmart of non-profits, they spread you so thin and provide you with no support system, no raises, little to no offer of benefits and no upward mobility. The CEO won't even acknowledge you unless he has an agenda and even then don't expect you'll ever get a smile or a thank you out of him. Rude beyond belief and treats the employees like they are dispensable pawns.

    Advice to Management

    This is the YMCA, an organization based in honesty, caring, and trust but there is anything but that coming from Upper Management. You make employees abide by those principles, perhaps the higher ups need to do the same.

    I worked at YMCA part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing beats playing with kids

    Cons

    Extremely poor pay. Mismanagement of finances to the point where the assumed role as a charitable institution ought to be questioned.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and stop spending frivolously on things that are unneeded.
