Pros: free fitness membership
Cons: lack of communication from the top down.
Being that the Y is a non-profit, one would expect a certain culture within, however this is not the true culture of the Y. Centralized Senior Management is not in tune with the needs of lower-level employees. There is plenty of job Security, however advancement from within is difficult, and is solely based on politics, not experience/education.
All – more... of this aside, I have enjoyed my time working for the Y. The organization does a lot of good in the community, and most of the funding for those programs is generated internally with members. I don't find myself dreading going to work, and I enjoy the contact I get with the members and the public. – less
