    Pros

    Nice Benefits for full time employees

    Cons

    - Rampant Politics (I've seen teams outright refuse to work with each other) - Incredible amounts of red tape that make it impossible to get things done quickly - Personnel decisions made based on cronyism, not competence. - Tools and processes that are at least ten years out of date. - Many managers more interested in protecting their fiefdoms than in getting anything done. - Contractors are treated the worst I've seen in over twenty years - Management who thinks nothing of setting unreasonable standards (ex: mandatory unpaid overtime) - Top-heavy organization, hiring more directors even as workers are being laid off

    Pros

    - Meaningful work - There's no other organization that affords its employees the ability to make such meaningful impact with educators nationwide.

    Cons

    - National organization, but can feel disconnected at times. New leadership is working to turn that around. Change is expected within the current year.
