    Pros

    Good (great) people (employees and the people with whom we have daily contact).
    Free Y Membership.
    Opportunity(ies) for internal transfer/advancement (after 6 months, you can put in an application to transfer to a different job within the YMCA/the YMCA sends out internal notices for job opportunities before posting them externally).
    They like to hire from within (or people who know people).
    Family oriented.

    Cons

    Job requirements/expectations do not allow for evaluations to be above a score of 3 out of 5 (unless you save a life or something).
    Most all jobs are only part time and you have to be in a job for some years before getting to a supervisory or management level position.
    "Do as I say and not as I do" mentality demonstrated from most supervisors/directors.
    Great ideas, but rarely ever the necessary follow through to make the ideas a reality.
    They like to hire from within.

    Advice to Management

    Demand more accountability from your team(s) and demand that they demand more accountability from their team(s).

  2. A very caring organization
