I wish I would have read the other reviews on here before joining the organization. So much of what everyone else has said is true.
Lower-level staff is absolutely passionate and hard-working. However, leadership at YW does not show appreciation for their work. There is a culture of catty-ness and cliques at the core of the leadership there. Leadership does very little to show that they value their employees.
These issues have led to extremely high turn-over (17 employees out of about 40 who left during my 13 months there) and low employee morale. Even though the lower-level staff is extremely talented, most of them burn-out after a year or so. The organization has so much potential to impact the community, but I don't think YW will ever reach this potential if they keep operating this way. If they do continue on the road that they are, they will need to focus more and more resources on recruiting and training new staff rather than on the mission.
For an organization that prides itself on empowering women and families in the community, they do very little to empower their own employees. It was a very disappointing experience
