Best NonProfits to Work For by the NonProfit Times, April 2018

Large nonprofits generally have more resources to be able to provide more services to their constituents or better salaries and benefits for employees. But bigger organizations are not without their own challenges compared to their more diminutive counterparts.

“When we think about things, sometimes it’s a little slower than I’d like because we want it to work for 850 people versus 10 people in one site, and the tax impacts may vary by state,” said John Bradley, chief operating officer (COO) of Year Up. “How do you make what we’re talking about work both nationally and local, operating within markets we need to be working within?”

Year Up is consistently ranked in the Best Nonprofits To Work For. This year, the Boston-headquartered nonprofit that provides intensive professional education to urban young adults comes in at No. 35 overall and fourth among large organizations (those with at least 250 employees). There are about 175 staff in the national office and another 21 sites in the field, totaling almost 800 employees.
