Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to feedback, be more supportive of employees, be more creative with outreach, be more inclusive, offer a fair wage for the hard work that employees put forth.

What I like about the company

The company as a whole tries to do great things, but they fall short because they lack teamwork and transparency. Upper management is only concerned with their own paychecks and nothing else, unfortunately. My co-workers were great, and we were still able to help the public, but more could be done if the company actually listened to the internal criticism every now and then.

What I dislike about the company

The company is too conservative when it comes to rolling out new programs, or even just trying new approaches for existing programs. Also, upper management does not support their employees very well, and people that do nothing are left to do nothing with no repercussions.

Support from management

Fortunately the former Executive Director is gone so my review may be a little late but both she and the board were clueless and if the board knew what went on there she wouldn't have had the opportunity to retire cause she would have been fired.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Literally ran those with longevity out of their positions

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is horrible for the work we did

Environmental Friendliness

Unless one employee took it upon themselves to take on the responsibility very little was done.

Company Image

But it's was all based on lies

Job Security

Everyone is responsible and they sure let you know it

Handicapped Accessibility

Meets codes but if the was ever a handicapped person on one of the floors and a fire broke out it would be impossible to get them out

Workplace Safety

Safety? Let's say the was very little of it concerning not just staff but clients as well. Abusers were able to gain access pretty easily and if a victim of abuse had to smoke they had to go down the street in the open where their abuser could easily find them. The Boutique was more important than the safety of our clients

Challenging Work

Every day brought something new but we had an executive director who was clueless as to the work we did not did she care

Inclusive / Diverse

They pretended to be diverse by having at least one African American on the advisory committees, but that place is the most racist agency I have ever worked for

Suggestions for improvement

  • The best thing that happened was they have a new Executive Director.. the bad thing is there was so much damage done in the process. A lot of really good people left.

What I like about the company

I loved our clients

What I dislike about the company

There are cliques within the YWCA and if you arent part of it you don't have a chance

What I like about the company

Fell like a part of the ywca . Used to have more perks like my kids could take free swim lessons. They have a great scholarship program. My boss wants my suggestions to improve the program. Wish they listened more to what I don't want. Wish our program was growing more. Bdhfudhhdhdhdhdhdhhdhdhdhdhdhdhdhhdhdhdhdhdhdhdhdhdhdududurhrbrh. Dhdudhrhhrbr dude f f duduur.

What I dislike about the company

They have become less like a family. Seems like they keep cutting programs and giving less perks
