    I worked at National School Boards Association full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented staff, great benefits and PTO, great work/life balance. Strong and ethical culture when things were good. Long time senior staff generally supportive of upward mobility and staff morale in earlier times.

    Cons

    Continual infighting between membership, board and executive director. Staff; staff layoffs, turnover and financial uncertainty hurt morale. Turnover of senior staff brought in people less invested in long term employees and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Right the ship. Focus on the mission and support the staff and insist that the board focus on the outcomes. Address the needs of the membership, but support staff when expectations are unrealistic.

    I worked at National School Boards Association

    Pros

    Great location. Great issues to work on. Great annual conference. Otherwise normal, decent set of co-workers.

    Cons

    For much of the last 15 years, until just recently, the place was run by a cabal of about 4-6 at the top that kept out anyone from within or below with new ideas and new skills and new energy. So most of those smart people who should have been running the place just left. And the rapidly aging pack at the top simply soldiered on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave. Immediately.
