    Pros

    People very dedicated to their roles. Very friendly. Tons of vacation time and holidays off.

    Cons

    Most departments could use more funding for their initiatives.

    I worked at JCC Association full-time

    Pros

    Most colleagues are happy to work with you and help out. Varied, interesting work, if you have initiative you can work with lots of different programs/events. Large amount of vacation days - get Jewish holidays off too. For lower-middle positions, average pay for a nonprofit. Executives/higher ups get comparatively high salaries.

    Cons

    Experience can depend on what department you work for - some have a higher turnover rate and disorganization as a result. Mid-sized organization where you have to advocate for yourself to get noticed.

    I worked at JCC Association part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I LOVED the members & my job

    Cons

    Don't get hurt and file a workman's comp. claim. They'll FIRE you before you can come back to work without any restrictions & lie to to WC and tell them you called in and resigned. I slipped on the pool deck (after it had been resurfaced x3 and getting resurfaced again the NEXT day) with a 2 yr old in my arms that I was taking into the water for swimming lessons. Instead of dropping her, I grabbed her tightly in my right arm and slammed my heels on the ground. I broke 2 molars (which resulted in them BOTH getting pulled, 1 implant & 1 bridge) & ruptured my bicep tendon. After 14 months of dental work & 6 months of extensive rehab on my shoulder, I had 1 more month of physical therapy before my Dr was going to release me back to FULL duty, but the JCC said i called in to resign!! (I still have a master set if keys to the facility, text messages with my director stating interest in returning back to work, no signed paperwork of resignation) I lost out on my last month of PT & my measly weekly WC pay & a job I LOVED. Now their WC company wants to low ball my claim. It's been 2.5 years and my claim is STILL isn't settled.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to save a few dollars.

    I have been working at JCC Association full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to work on projects that have an impact. Lots of opportunities to get out of your department and collaborate. The JCC field is the absolute best to work in.

    Cons

    Morale is low at times. We are pretty short-staffed as well.
