    Pros

    You are treated with the respect as a person. The workers are very knowledgeable on many levels of professionalism, you can laugh and joke with the workers as they are assisting you.

    Cons

    The con is relatively a pro in disguise, 1199 is so popular that many people on any given day are trying to join this union.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, the benefits are truly unsurpassed, I love the open culture and the diversity of the employees. Continue Onward.

    Pros

    Great people who are committed to the work they do, solid healthcare and pension benefits, encourages and funds training and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Long hours and severe disorganization and lack of coordination among departments that leads to a lot of wasted effort and poor results

    Advice to Management

    Set some priorities for the union to coordinate departments and don't burn out your staff


  3. Only consider if nothing better. Try to avoid working here

    Pros

    - Free benefits
    - Stress level not too bad (depends on manager)
    - Not much else

    Cons

    - Benefits might be free, but less and less providers accept 1199. They complain about low reimbursement rates.
    - The Dental plan might as well not exist. No dentist wants or accepts it
    - Management here is a new breed of clueless. No coordination between the different departments, at least in IT
    - No appreciation from the managers, only complaints. Sleazy tactics are used to try to get rid of people.
    - Under the "landmark" excuse, the building they're in is falling apart. Seriously, the building needs a serious makeover.
    - Salaries are significantly below industry standard

    My advice to anybody considering working here: if there's nothing else better, take it, and ride the storm. This isn't a place for the long term, unless you want to waste away and get an ulcer dealing with the daily shenanigans of the bloated, inept management in place. There are too many people here that are entrenched and aren't going anywhere, and will do everything to protect their turf.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of diversity, & a less corporate setting are things you could look forward to. Oh and did I mention great benefits?

    Cons

    The emphasis on formal education needs to be greater. A lot of people could use the extra encouragement to at least be able to write a full sentence without malapropisms and misspellings. Everyone has their favorites, everyone. Almost feels like high school, with a paycheck.

    Pros

    Very casual atmosphere. Old timers can get away with working 20-30% of the day and still keep their jobs. This is definitely a family based company with relatives everywhere in the organization. H

    Cons

    Old timers rule the coop. Pay is not in line with the general market. Managers are oblivious. New managers come in with ideas but quickly realize the old timers don't appreciate it. So you simply give up and go with the flow. Low morale, motivation and incentive to make a difference. Nothing is appreciated---my manager never tells me I am doing a good job. Lack of support from staff and managers. It works both ways. Almost feels like a corporate plantation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money on gifts and give gifts in the form of money

    Pros

    A very casual dress code, not that much pressure from management. As long as you do your job you are safe. They have pension and great health benefits. Also most holidays are given off on top of vacation, sick, and personal time.

    Cons

    Salary range is not the great since it is a non profit. Also no bonuses hinder employee satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Give regular positive feedback to employees to keep morale high.
