Disapproves of CEO

Pros

I have freedom of job scheduling.

Cons

too much of a corporate atmosphere. this is supposed to be a ministry.

Advice to Management

there are policies created for everything. it stifles the ability of field staff to pursue kids intentionally- younglife was founded on strategically entering communities, but now everything is s standardized. it's a disappointing departure from Jim Rayburns vision. Failure used to be key to figuring this thing out, risk, fail, risk more, succeed. now failure isn't tolerated, it's terminated.

    I have been working at Young Life (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with families and kids.

    Cons

    Young life is a great organization. I think not all areas of the organization are the same. Find out who you will be working for and know them.

    I worked at Young Life (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome experience, a place where you can share the love of God and grow in a funny exciting way. Always challenges and opportunities to innovate.

    Cons

    Low salary, depends on donations. Very time consuming. Most of all, there are staff members that should consider step away to give others opportunities to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure staff members are preparing others for the charge.
