I have been working at IEEE full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits and working conditions, life work balance. Generally nice people, staff and volunteer. Interesting mission and many ways to draw value from efforts

Cons

Whew, here we go: Many non-professional staff filling roles over their head; little bias for action, staff are content to let volunteers tell them what to do; Very political (hallway half abound!); most groups are so narrowly minded, MAJOR silos exist; infighting and lack of coordination among senior management - new hires vs old guard; senior management would be B or C team in industry; pay is way under market rate for locations; limited resources, poor infrastructure and heavy bureaucracy

Advice to Management

Get a real vision and strategic plan - communicate it, live it, reinforce it with both volunteers and staff. Make some hard decisions and show progress

    I have been working at IEEE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are not career oriented and just need a job that pays you, Ieee is the company for you.

    Cons

    lot of deadwood, no growth prospects, dirty office politics.Other department might be okay however IT dept really need a lot of cleanup. They have a part time CIO (acts like a par time one) who has introduced new senior management positions and made the dept top heavy. there is hardly any motivation or encouragement in the organization. There was a consulting company who had recommended changes/cleanup but HR dept doe not have the guts to take bold steps but just wants to maintain the statusquo. Since its non profit, they dont have to really perform well.

    Advice to Management

    They need to streamline the management, its top heavy.
