    I worked at Project Management Institute part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent organization with progressive ideals/ideas on educating professions in the project management body of knowledge. The staff, both paid and volunteer, are dedicated and capable

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons. The people were easy to work with and appreciated the volunteer efforts and allow for different points of view in the area of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not great access to management given the volunteer situation but that was not a real problem as I was able to get what I needed from my face to face counterparts.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Project Management Institute.

    Interview Details

    Great local office location, friendly receptionist. Led to a small room off reception area and was interviewed for about two hours by one HR person, then a department manager, who I was told was not the one I would be working with or reporting to. The details of the new position had not been worked out and there was no job description finalized. As a professional administrator, everything discussed was within my skill set so I felt confident I could excel in this job, and I did. Almost immediately, I learned why the position was pending for so long: very difficult, micro manager who never learned to work well with others. Even this I could handle but the lack of communication that was shared by management down to other employees, which we were supposed to be aware of, made the jobs decision making process very difficult.

    Negotiation Details
    Initial salary offering was very low, negotiated up, but I was always way below the average salary for this job.
