I have been working at Year Up full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Year Up is like no other organization. My colleagues are all very genuine and truly care about the work we do, as well the students we serve. The work isn't easy and everyone comes in day in and day out ready and willing to go the extra mile. Year Up is organization that also cares about you as an individual. The benefits package is amazing and taking care of yourself is encouraged here. Your colleagues are your teammates and everyone respects one another. It is definitely a pleasure working here. Even though we are a new site, our team is growing and the word is getting out about Year Up Los Angeles.

Cons

With all the positives stated, it is a little challenging to talk about the cons, as there aren't many. I will say that the office space is a little challenging. If you are used to having your own office or office space, get over it. It would be nice to have that intimate space, however, to focus on your work, have confidential meetings and conversations with students, etc. We are a new site so we are still learning and growing together but this also presents natural challenges that we will soon overcome.

Advice to Management

None.

    I worked at Year Up as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Of the few diverse staff, they were very understanding of the clientele and the issues brought forth by applicants and interns. Trainings held on a fairly frequent basis to tackle sensitive issues.

    Cons

    Staff not diverse enough to match the ethnic/cultural makeup of applicants. Staff showing clear bias towards certain individuals. Staff not showing appropriate boundaries or ethical understanding of issues presented to them.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer focus on cultural humility, empathy, and compassion. Treating applicants and interns as people rather than numbers on a spreadsheet.
