    I have been working at National Fire Protection Association full-time

    Pros

    The company mission is laudable. A non-profit - as publisher of the NEC, the company has a license to print money so not subject to the kinds of financial pressurs of a for-profit enterprise. Good place to be a slacker. Pay is below market but one of the few companies that still offers a defined benefit pension plan (but only about 30% of salary). If you're not ambitious, want to work 9-5 and don't expect to make a lot of money, you might find this a good place to carve a little niche and kick back.

    Cons

    Very frustrating for anybody with ambition. Very hard to get anything accomplished. A few motivated individuals struggle to get things done with meager support from management. Senior managers devise strategic plans in a vacum and fail to devote necessary resources to strategic initiatives. Much inter-departmental bickering and finger-pointing. Try to get something big done and you will have a target on your back - very stressful. Management lacks the will to set priorities and focus resources.

    A lot of dead wood in the staff - poorly educated, unskilled, unmotivated staff - very hard to get cooperation. The place clears out at 5pm on the dot. Hard work is not rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agree as a team on a few top priorities and commit resources to those. Communicate those priorities to your staff, give them appropriate resources and empower them to achieve. Reward people who produce results and prune the dead wood. Stop all of the "team building" navel-gazing exercises, get back to the office and focus, focus, focus.
