    Unending turnover Nepotism at its finest More concerned with the YL brand, than the core of the mission Lost focus from the original heart of the ministry, to a corporate focus

    Great mission currently under very poor leadership

    Mar 8, 2022 - Field Staff in Portland, OR
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overall, most are very wonderful people to work with. The health benefits are second to none!

    Cons

    It is still very much a good 'ol boys club. It is hard as a woman to feel respected, invested in or promoted. Very little consistency in job posting vs. appointments. Certain positions are not even posted and favorite individuals (usually white men) are placed into those positions without a process. Other positions "have to be posted" and fought for.
