I have been working at IEEE as a contractor

Pros

Good mission. Some great people. Volunteers bring slice of idealism that is vitalizing

Cons

Senior management needs to clue themselves in and needs to work together. They talk about how the middle managers need to work as "one" but the senior management is one fractured, out-of-touch group.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work together. The pie is big, a rising tide lifts all boats.

    Current Employee - Senior Programmer and Above in Piscataway, NJ
    Current Employee - Senior Programmer and Above in Piscataway, NJ

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

    Pros

    Even though a non profit company for IT folks it is same as any other IT department with tight timelines.
    But Flexible about hours.

    I think it is a good company to work if you work other than IT. But i don't think the pay will be good for non IT department.

    Cons

    Slow in getting promotions. In my opinion Top management CEO / CTO have no clue on what they are doing.

    I don't think they know what employees think about them and their action or they don't care.

    Really bad in communication with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should really consider promoting people and improve communication to the staff. Very bad in communication with employees. No body knows what is happening in the company.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Piscataway, NJ

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
