    I have been working at JCCSF full-time

    Pros

    Positive and collaborative environment, great people to work with, provides services for a wide range of people and has many opportunities to work with a diverse array of people.

    Cons

    Difficult to grow and advance in positions, limited career path opportunities, limited compensation, and cramped/ inadequate office arrangements with limited space and many employees.

    Advice to Management

    More support and recognition would be appreciated


  2. "Swim Instructor"

    Pros

    Pays well. They offer fairly comprehensive training. They use a curriculum provided by a third-party company that brings structure and continuity to lessons.

    Cons

    The job itself can be very straining. Being indoors in a noisy environment with screaming kids, and being constantly exposed to chlorine for long periods of time takes a toll.

    Hire more cooks!

    I have been working at JCCSF full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quality of life matters most here. Everyone is encouraged to work less and spend more time with family and friends. Flexible workday schedules. Lots of activity around at all times.

    Cons

    Not progressive or innovative. Stuck in circles, limited grow and opportunity to evolve. Hiring is from within which promotes unqualified candidates. Positive change is not supported by most.

    Advice to Management

    Find a strategy and implement. Grow, expand, hire effectively and get current with the SF world around you.

    Pros

    My coworkers, and the supervisors are warming and welcoming. Working with special needs kids is a great opportunity.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is challenging when the kid you are working with isn't complying and listening to rules, but that is normal for all kids.

    Pros

    Great People, great environment, good benefits. This is so far removed from the mindlessness of the financial district. People actually care about others and not just of themselves. The is a giving environment that nurtures mind, body and spirit. The JCCSF has treated like a professional from day 1, allowing me the autonomy to do the job I was hired to do without someone breathing down my neck. The C-level executives are on the frontlines with the rest of the staff and make it a point to know EVERYONE'S names. Since working here, my stress level has decreased by at least 90%. It's been a long time since I've been able to say this but I LOVE MY JOB!!!

    Cons

    Pay is low and no bonuses, but it's a non-profit, so that's to be expected. There are so many other things that make up for the monetary compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    I work in the early childhood department. The staff are warm and friendly and everyone works as a team to provide the best care and education possible. The environment is extremely clean and organized.

    Cons

    I haven't discovered a major "con" yet. The employee benefits are great as well. I've been here for almost a year and am very proud to work here.

    I worked at JCCSF full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are treated with respect and everyone seems to be genuinely happy to be there (most days). Flexible schedules are usually accommodated and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    There's not really much opportunity for advancement, partly because of their lean organizational structure and partly because of little turnover. It's a non-profit community center, so the pay is below market rate for most positions.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out feedback from junior and new employees. Since so many have been there for so long, there's a lot of institutional reluctance to try new ways of doing things.
