The group workers are really the heroes of this organization. The right attitude makes or breaks an environment and for the most part, employees are on board. However management could be better.

As a non-profit, the Y's mission does not correlate with its actions. It all comes down to bottom line here. In my eight years working here, (plus two years - more... volunteering), it was always understaffed. It was a revolving door for Executive Directors and, with the exception of three managers, the wrong people were always promoted or hired for these positions. - less
