    Pros

    Terrific organization. Strong financials, good benefits, exceptional reputation. I feel good about what I accomplish at IEEE. I've been lucky to be assigned to some cool teams, especially in marketing. It's rare that I'm not excited to come to work. Impressive leadership at the executive level, especially the new leaders. The exception being execs in their current jobs 10+ years.

    Cons

    I wish the incentive program was better. I'll be honest - it's a joke. There is no pay for performance culture, which leads me to my next comment: a lot of the complainers have been here so long that they don't realize how good they have it. Those of us that came here from other companies praise God for how lucky they are to work here. It is very clear top management is working to change things; but it's slow going. I don't fault the new execs....they often encounter a buzz saw of resistance from entrenched staff (and their volunteers) who work behind the scenes to run interference. I do have the sense, though, that the culture will continue to evolve and change for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the complainers. There are plenty of people looking for work, who would be happy to replace them. Significantly improve the incentive program. The economy is improving, and more attractive offers are out there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IEEE (Piscataway, NJ).

    Interview

    First phone call and meeting with HR; needed to fill out an online application in the HR office so bring your work history with you. Once complete I met with hiring manager for about 45 minutes and was also given a skills test. A second interview was peer, scheduled with folks who were to be my coworkers. A third interview was attempted, to meet with the head of the department, but this individual was traveling extensively at the time and, when too much time had passed, HR made me an offer anyway.
