Disapproves of CEO

Pros

You learn what an incompetent, arrogant, self centered, egotistical, strung out CEO looks and acts like. If you date him you'll get a job, and so will your dad. The feeling of quitting something so toxic is a euphoric rush like you won't believe.

Cons

You slowly lose all concept of humanity and what it means to be kind. Your personal life dies as does your soul. You start to realize the messages set forth by the CEO are lies and that he himself does not follow any of them. The pay is decent at best and you can't always count on the payments to go through on time. You get a week vacation during the holidays....unpaid of course. Don't worry the CEO still gets paid for that week though. The drama starts with the CEO and you realize you have no voice or say. Once you start you see that all the fancy job descriptions of drama free and being part of a team are all fabricated lies. The temper tantrums and child like outbursts both in person and online snap you into reality. The embarrassing Facebook with misspellings and inane ramblings convince you to never put this on a résumé because people may think worse of you for working under such a CEO. Fires key people in important positions in ensembles and office.

Advice to Management

Fire the CEO, fire the board, and for gods sake hire someone with experience in business and a degree to match.

    I worked at Youth Education in the Arts full-time

    Pros

    The mission statement is true to its word - the programs and the people involved are truly magnificent.

    Cons

    If I could give "Work / Life Balance" and "Senior Management" negative stars I would. The work expectation as compared to the tools and staffing levels are unsustainable.

    Advice to Management

    You hire people with the expectation that they will problem solve and bring expertise to your organization. If they are not allowed to exercise professional judgment in any capacity, you never benefit from their talents.

    I worked at Youth Education in the Arts as a contractor

    Pros

    No pros to working at this horrid place. Stay far, far away. I don't know what more I could say. This place is a revolving door. Many people have begun their journey here and try to stick it out to help the kids, but end up frazzled and needing at least a year to get back to feeling like themselves again.

    Cons

    Cons:
    - If you want to be treated like a human being, do not apply
    - If you love your kids, do not apply
    - If you value vacation time, do not apply
    - If you value your sanity, do not apply
    - If you value your integrity, do not apply
    - If you value growth in your career, do not apply
    - If you are a woman, do not apply
    The list could go on, but hopefully you get the idea.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should fire your CEO. That might fix the revolving door of talented people who have come and gone. Many have said the only reason they left was due to the CEO.
