    I worked at US Chamber of Commerce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's a lot of prestige that comes with the Chamber name. It's a heavyweight in Washington, and it means something to people.
    There are a lot of smart people who work at the Chamber and it's a great environment to learn from those people.
    They cover lots of issues, basically every issue, and in a shared services department (like I was in), you get to learn a lot about several issues.

    Cons

    As others have mentioned, it's very bureaucratic. What's frustrating is you hear about exceptions to the bureaucracy, so sometimes it feels aimed at most of the staff, but not everyone. You learn who the exceptions are quickly.
    The work life balance is entirely dependent on your department and manager. In my experience, if you let them, they will walk all over you. Be protective of your work life balance and try not to yield.
    I had a reasonably good experience there. But I have seen other people who had a decidedly different experience. It's a very gossip-heavy environment and there are winners and losers.
    Would I recommend the Chamber to a friend? Not sure. It depends highly on the person you are working for and the people in the department. There's too many variables among departments to make a fair determination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be on merit, not on tenure or popularity.
    Be more transparent about strategy and give people the opportunity to feel like part of the process, not just a cog in the machine.
    HR has too much power and individual managers need to be empowered to take the action that best accommodates their needs. It's a large organization and some of the policies make it far too centralized.

    Neutral Outlook
