I have been working at MRA - The Management Association full-time

Pros

The people/employees. There are many good hard working people. Very talented.
It's not a cut throught environment.
I personally work with an excellent team.
There are over 60 lines of business allowing for opportunities in more than one area.
MRA has been in business for over 100 years. It's been a stable regional organization. Not many organizations have that longevity.
MRA is looking to expand expertise and is bringing in new talent.
There's an opportunity to work full time, part time in a number of capacities.

Cons

While there are flexible schedules, benefits such as vacation could be improved upon. Not necessarily a con, but culture is somewhat "old school;" dress policy - men wear ties. That is starting to relax a bit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to seek innovative and progressive ways to tap market place and service members.

    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.
