    I worked at SEIU full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros boil down to the terms of the job
    1. Good pay
    2. Short work week ( 7 hr days)
    3. Great benefits

    Cons

    I worked in the Health Care Research Team as a Field Researcher on the Data Team. This branch analyzes state and federal claims data for quality and cost performance problems in hospital systems. Organizers use the findings for campaign fodder.

    This is an incredibly slow job with little challenge and contrary to what you will hear in your interview, hard work is not rewarded. There is a stereotypical union culture where advancement is based on tenure not merit, and cronyism and laziness prevail.

    Important details about the models used and the management style. There is only one model used: weighted averages are calculated and deviation scores compared. Inefficient and impractical especially for big data. Regarding management style, the supervisor is extremely unprofessional and immature, uses an unbelievable amount of profanity, and just doesn't do his job. Worse, your projects depend on how much your supervisor like you, which further stunts your professional growth if you aren't willing to stoop to that level. Needless to say, it's a very uncomfortable and intellectually ungratifying place to work.

    What I'm thankful for is that I got experience using this data, because it's enabled me to get a great job in data analysis. If you live in Columbus and are more concerned about flexible work hours, pay and benefits, this works. If you are concerned about work content and experience, I would look elsewhere.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for SEIU. Training provided and an opportunity to advance. Freedom to plan daily activities.

    Cons

    If you do not like to travel and live in a hotel then this is not the job for you. Must be very persuasive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to management except to continue to working on improvements .
