I have been working at National Roofing Contractors Association

Pros

- There are only about 50 employees here so it's easy to know and interact with people from different departments and various management levels.
- Good work/life balance. Scheduling is flexible and they're flexible about letting people work from home
- Salaries seem average, maybe a little bit low in some people's opinions
- Christmas bonuses and holidays. There are plenty of holidays.
- Decent/average amount of paid sick, vacation and personal days.
- Casual dress code

Cons

- Most people have been here for at least 10 years so from the perspective of a young, entry-level employee, there's not a lot of room for career development. Most people are set in their departments and positions.
- Most employees are 30 years and older. Not a very youthful office.
- I've heard complaints from veteran employees regarding how low to nonexistent the yearly raises are.
- The office environment is pretty unstimulating. Everyone kind of stays in their offices and those who mingle have their own "cliques" already (once again, mostly due to everyone being here for so long)

Basically, the biggest issue is if you're a younger professional looking to work your way up, this isn't the ideal place. I know a lot of people here who have worked their way through a couple of different departments but that took them a few years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try something new. I know the industry can be more conservative and traditional at times, but there is a whole new generation coming in and the association needs to appeal to them. Also, communicate more with lower-level employees about certain changes in departments. Weekly staff meetings help keep us informed on a basic level, but more interdepartmental communication regarding association changes is what's needed.
