I have been working at MRA - The Management Association

Pros

As a mission-driven not-for-profit, one of the most important things MRA employees enjoy is the meaningful contribution we get to make to the common good of the almost 2,000 members we serve. That attracts a lot of really good people, so another perk here is simply working with some extraordinary colleagues. The work/life balance afforded by MRA is exceptional. And it's a very "intrapreneurial" type of culture -- if you have a good idea and it makes sense for MRA and its members, you will most likely find great support.

Cons

As an NFP, MRA watches every penny, so frugality is one hallmark of everything MRA does. That applies to compensation, benefits and everything else. It's also a tough environment in which to innovate. Not impossible, just challenging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As management already knows, Employers Associations like MRA face a challenge to remain relevant and successful in today's fast-paced, changing business environment. MRA needs to pick up the pace on innovation.

    Pros

    MRA offers nice benefits, although greatly reduced from a few years ago. In addition there is excellent work / life flexibility.

    Cons

    They have a very old fashioned approach to most ideas and will do things wrong and ineffectively rather than potentially hurting a long time employee's feelings. Money isn't spent in the right ways and focus on projects to completion is rare. Compensation is almost half what you get in market which leads them to not getting top tier talent.
