Know that my empolyment there ended in 2002 - I imagine the salary is better now.
When I started at the Y, I was young, and it was just another job. When I left five years later I'd been transformed. They have an excellent career development program. Additionally, both of my successive Executive Directors taught me a whole new outlook. As I look back at my career, they were the two best managers I have had.
The atmosphere is relaxed but professional, and I was given more responsibility when I asked for it. They contribute a crazy high amount to your retirement plan. The pay is not stellar, but the benefits are good, and it is very satisfying to the soul to be a part of good programs - programs for young and old, rich and poor, and where equality really is the ethos.
I planned on staying but life happened. However, in writing this, I am now thinking about going back for the end of my career.
