Current Employee - Health in Wausau, WI

I have been working at YMCA part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The people who work there are great. Employees get free single Y membership with employment. Very well managed and organized. Active in the community.

Cons

Not really any cons, seriously. I have been there over 6 years and have not had any serious negative problems working there.

    I worked at YMCA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to make a difference in the community and to help people change their lives.

    Cons

    Management structure is flawed. It is volunteer driven which turns out to be more of a buddy club scenario. The CEO picks the board and the board makes the decisions affecting people. Many board members aren't even members of the Y.

    Advice to Management

    Run your operation more like a business and be honest with your employees.
