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

Pros

The people make Year Up, totally mission driven and 100% committed to making an impact. Innovative and fun working environment. Great benefits. The staff is very young because this is a great place to learn the ropes

Cons

If you want a life outside of work, this may not be the place for you. Run like a for profit corporation with out the for profit salary

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

    Pros

    Invested in developing staff members and promoting growth within the organization.
    Amazing CEO! Cares a lot about his employees

    Cons

    Can be selective on who they develop and how. Does not seem like everyone is granted the same opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent on the opportunities you grant to staff members. Be weary of unconscious biases you may have.

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

    Pros

    They will prepare you to work in corporate world.

    The staff are very supportive and you can connect with your peers and guests.
    Lifetime support - as alumni they would reach out to you for job opportunities.

    Cons

    Depending on your situation, a $500 (may change in the future) stipend every two weeks may not be enough to support your self or family.

    Advice to Management

    Get trainees to get more involved in hands-on training. I feel like there wasn't enough hands-on activity.
