    Pros

    Organization is committed to its mission, employees are fun, and the work is challenging. Good job that will allow you to work on a variety of projects, both inside and outside of your functional role. Also, all staff members get to work with students on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Pains of a growing organization (too fast, too soon), hard to find work/life balance, and salary is not always competitive with the marketplace

    I have been working at Year Up full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The mission of the company will inspire you to join. The work with the students and staff will inspire you to stay. Depending on where you are with your career, you can be extremely happy working here. It is a great company to join right after college or at the end of a career, and even for career switchers. The impact you can have on students and communities is nothing short of incredible. And the company's core values really allow you to self-assess your performance and that of the students. Once you've been here for a few cohorts, and the alumni share with you their success stories, it is simply mind-blowing.

    Cons

    Culture is not as feedback-driven among staff as it is for students - feedback is often first heard on performance reviews, rather than shared in person. Hours can be very long, and the company only seems half-committed to work/life balance and wellness. Career coaching for staff is subpar, and it is hard to earn a promotion if there is no organizational need for such a position. Sometimes, feeling valued by staff, especially management, can be difficult to come by. Annual raises only keep up with the cost of living, no matter how outstanding your performance. Pursuing and successfully executing on challenges outside of your core role may not earn the appropriate recognition or compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers more on career coaching and how to make sure staff feel valued at all times. Make clear what the path to promotion looks like, and be transparent about expectations. Find ways to facilitate feedback among staff, and further prioritize work-life balance as an organizational need.
