Pros

Interested in State policy? NCSL is an amazing place to make a genuine difference in policy at state and national level. WOrking with state legislatures around the country and colleagues at NCSL is an amazing privelege. Meet tomorrow's leaders--and todays.

Cons

Entry level pay scales are lower than comparable but the career opportunities more than compensate. As a senior staffer, that means more turnover in junior staff than I'd prefer. Organiztionally somewhat flat so it is hard to advance. Howver, if one is entreprenurial and willing to find funding for one's own projects that is encouraged and then anything is possible.

Advice to Management

Look for better ways to improve the career ladder and retain young talent/

    I worked at National Conference of State Legislatures as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization with terrific values. Really enjoyed working with management and coworkers - everyone was knowledgeable and intelligent. The culture was extremely kind and respectful.

    Cons

    No problems as an employee. As an organization, however, they make too many compromises to remain a neutral party, often passing up great opportunities to contribute a more useful, actionable recommendation to legislators. I think this limits their overall utility and value to legislators. You can present balanced opinions and suggestions while remaining neutral.
