An older organization that is trying to be dynamic Professional great bosses (this may vary by department, I've heard communications *may* be a nightmare). Stability, and professionalism. You are working to support hard working entrepreneurs (Realtors), and the entire organization and management is aware of who the customers are, "customer service" is a priority across the organization and it shows. This is a traditional employer, who provides life benefits and strategies. The "customer base" of a trade association is always varied and makes strategy hard, this is interesting to view play out.
It is a pretty large organization, so has some red-tape, this is my backyard stuff when crossing departments, this has negative effects on say, the website, and efforts to improve things can be stifled by friction and inertia. Interview process was a bit of a nightmare; and the time-in of benefits is a little silly: drivers get a free parking space from the start, but commuters have to wait until their fourth month to get the transportation subsidy? In the densest part of LA with the best public transportation? Huh? Who decided this is a good idea?
Advice to Management
Keep aware of competition, remain dynamic!

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at California Association of Realtors (Sacramento, CA) in March 2015.
I submitted a cover letter and resume, they called to schedule a phone interview. Second round interview was in person. At the in-person interview, I was asked to fill out a formal application. Interview questions focused largely on my ability to provide excellent customer service. The longest part of the process was waiting for a background check to complete, which reached out to all of my listed contacts and several former employers.
