      Approves of CEO

      I worked at YWCA full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The mission is what I'm passionate about. It's easy to fundraise when you believe in the cause.

      Cons

      As a non-profit, there isn't a very large marketing budget so that can be challenging.

    • "Very “High School” Culture"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at YWCA

        Pros

        The mission of the program was amazing. Great opportunities to implement a great program.

        Cons

        Upper management was very immature. Petty drama and clicks were crowding the workplace. CEO micromanages everyone and everything and if you don’t do or follow their expectations, you immediately have a target on your back.

        Advice to Management

        Allow those in a position actually perform their role!
