I have been working at National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO)

Pros

- Work-life balance is generally pretty good, with options available for alt/flex schedules and telecommuting for some positions
- Staff are often passionate about their work, putting in extra time and hours for the cause.
- Excellent benefits package.
- Collegial atmosphere and casual dress code

Cons

- Significant changes in leadership and culture have not been well managed, which led to drastic turnover and low morale in recent years.
- Low performers are not accountable, while high performance is rewarded only with more work.
- Functions more like a government contractor than a member association.
-Personnel policies are implemented inconsistently across the company--lots of inequitable treatment depending on supervisors' whim.
- HR department lacks structure and capacity, so it's difficult to hire, fire, appraise performance fairly, and earn or award promotions

    I worked at National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) full-time

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities for training and skill development. If you ware lucky, you can work closely with many different public health fields and interact with local, state, and federal public health leaders. The compensation is good enough and after 2 years, there is a lot of vacation time. Good sick leave policy.

    Cons

    Management does not value those employees that work hard and believe in the mission of the organization. There is high turn over due to the nature of the positions and limited opportunity for promotions even after 'paying your dues.' There is little infrastructure in the entire organization, which is problematic but doesn't seem to be a big issue to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to standardize promotions and hire from within. Value the employees that actually work.

  2.  

    Competent HR. Departmental leadership is disjointed, opaque. Workaholics cause low morale.

    Pros

    Good first experience in DC policy shop.

    Cons

    Overworked, lagging market, office intrigue. Not family friendly, better for single people or childless people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually consider 360 reviews of peers, departments. You might find out why your turnover is so high.
