Senior Data Administration Representative (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNAugust 1, 2015
My coworkers are great to work with, they're easy going, laid back and everyone is willing to help out. One of the hardest part of my job is how my work flow can change from one minute to the next based on specific needs. Often times I have the same deadline to meet on several different jobs but I've learned to prioritize and get things done in a timely fashion.

The most enjoyable part of my job is working for a company that is well diverse and focuses on the communities. .

C0-Teacher- and advancement to READS coordinator (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 30, 2015
Pros: Free lunch to kids in our program
Cons: mostly part-time work
The YMCA has a great outreach program that strives to serve the community on various levels of the economic condition of its neighbors and communities.

In working for the YMCA I was in charge of implementing and overseeing the reading and literacy program for an elementary school and we did very amazing and rewarding work within our neighborhoods and communities.

Wonderful mission, terrible management.
Communications and Financial Development Dir. (Former Employee), Salinas, CAJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Good pay and benefits.
Cons: Very poor management, no support and no training.
This was by far the worst non-profit experience I have ever had. There is no training and no support from upper management. The CEO just assumed that I would be able to read her mind with regard to her desires for the organization without being able to articulate what she wanted and how I could best be of service. And unfortunately, my crystal ball was in the shop.
