I worked at YMCA as a contractor for more than 3 years

Pros

The managers were very welcoming and excited to have new people. They also seem to really love their jobs. The customers are very pleasant, all families, and the facilities are beautiful. You also get a free membership during your employment and a discount membership for your family members.

Cons

In the child care dept, the parent is always right....which can be frustrating when dealing with a difficult child.

    I regret working there

    Current Employee - Manager  in  Boston, MA (US)
    Current Employee - Manager in Boston, MA (US)

    I have been working at YMCA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pension contribution is really the only decent benefit they provide.

    Cons

    The pay is not good, and generally the organization is just poorly managed. There is always a budget crisis, which ends in layoffs or cutbacks in hours for hourly staff. If you are on salary they make you work long hours, and expect you to be there nights and weekends. Top management is often unprofessional. I found there to be a strong undercurrent of homophobia.
