I worked at YMCA full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people who work there are generally very passionate about the cause they are working for, creating a very great environment.

Cons

Large disconnect from Association Office and the Branches, senior Management is not in tune with what is needed at the branch level. Promotions are only based on politics, not actual merit. Within the Organization, there is a resistance to outside training, even if it would be beneficial, they are only concerned with training done in-house. Pay is not great for the amount of work expected.

Advice to Management

One of the Goals is to be an employer of choice. If you are serious about that goal, you need to really sit down and look at the Organization and change things. Advancement needs to be based on merit and accomplishments, not politics, compensation needs to be in line with the amount of work expected.
