    ProsMission oriented, effects measurable change in organizing and bettering the working conditions for low wage workers, and the people in this department are great.

    ConsSometimes stuck doing the same remedial task for a week straight and there tends to be a general lack of direction - learning as you go type environment.

    Great place to make a difference

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsInteresting people, chance to work on innovative projects within the labor movement, opportunities to really grow and explore new things (but sometimes you have to look for them.).

    ConsLong hours, and there can be lots of travel. You have to make a conscious effort to balance work and life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStaff development is an area that can always use more work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Compnay

    Organizer (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsI really enjoyed working for SEIU. Training provided and an opportunity to advance. Freedom to plan daily activities.

    ConsIf you do not like to travel and live in a hotel then this is not the job for you. Must be very persuasive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice to management except to continue to working on improvements .

    Law Clerk at International Headquarters

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany opportunities to work on wide varieties of legal topics. Counsel in the office is very helpful in giving feedback on research and written work.

    ConsNot many downsides to working here. The security team in the lobby are a little aggravating. I spent numerous days in the lobby waiting after forgetting a keycard with the same security guard who never remembered my face.

    A doorman job is one I enjoy immensely. A decent salary along with great benefits make this a desirable job.

    Doorman (Current Employee)

    ProsMeeting interesting people in this field. The benefits are great. Within this economy it is very fortunate to have a job with stability.

    ConsThere is little room for growth. Salaries do not go up until the next contract. I have very few negatives for this job. If you're happy with this salary you'll be quite content.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA pat on the back is always appreciated, sure it doesn't put money in the bank but it gives an empoyee a great deal of satisfaction.
