Pros

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

Cons

Top 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"

    I worked at District of Columbia Bar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Entrenched 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 Management

    Cultivate a more open, supportive and transparent work environment.

    I worked at District of Columbia Bar (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job and it's very much you put your time in and then you're done.

    Cons

    It's a very stagnant place to work -- the department I was in there wasn't much room for promotion and it was very much of a "this is the way we've done it in the past" and often there wasn't much innovation.
