    Up and Down

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThere are some really nice people who work at the Bar. They are family friendly. Best departments to work for when I was there: Pro Bono (the boss, Monika Varma is awesome), Finance also seems good too and the people are close knit.

    ConsDepending on the department, it can be DYSFUNCTIONAL and difficult. The leadership likes things a certain way and may not be open to change. Before you accept a job there, try to find out as much as you can about the department you are working for. Some departments have HIGH turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your subordinates and try to take their suggestions. Maybe the Bar would have less turnover if you do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not the best office culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros35 hr workweek, great location and building, lots of good people to work with, work itself is rather low stress

    ConsTop down management. Some of the upper level managers are very odd, overall culture is not at all upbeat, unresponsive IT dept, domineering and distant HR dept., people get fired all the time with no warning--they call it "reorganization"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Depressing work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsSome departments are better than others. Member services seemed to be well run.

    ConsEntrenched management that is out of touch with the times and disconnected from employees. Bureaucratic environment. High turnover in some departments, such as Sections.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCultivate a more open, supportive and transparent work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
