I have been working at Boys & Girls Clubs part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Very professional in the area that they specialize.
Very organized when ti comes to assisting youngins-teenagers
Extremely beneficial when it comes to influencing kids to go to college and to care more for their education and skills.
Emphasizes in teaching kids to look into their future and make something out of their lives.

Cons

There are practically no cons, the objective of the Boys and Girls Club is to strengthen kids of all types, and ages character, and future skills. The only technical con is that if you are to become employed in this workforce, you must be dedicated to change lives for the better, be very social, and to enforce a work habit all around your work site. If you cannot do these things then you will not survive in this profession.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The boys and Girls Club is run very well, nearly no issues with sites except for the usual "We wish we had a _______".

    I worked at Boys & Girls Clubs full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mission. The mission to serve youth most in need is wonderful and there are many good clubs across the country executing on the mission well. The kids are wonderful but you are removed from them by working at headquarters.

    Cons

    Long-term employees with "that's not how we do it here" mentality.
    Top performances not valued. Only old relationships valued.
    Pay - below average for job and market
    Cronyism. Some old, blind allegiances in too many key departments or individuals who are under-qualified yet yell discrimination and end up protected. Some leaders need to go. Others who are newer are a mixed bag. Understand that a staffer from Komen was hired and is now bringing in tons of Komen people without having to post jobs or allow others to apply. Is that what Boys & Girls Clubs needs? Another Komen, political nightmare?
