    Current Employee - Administration in Washington, DC
    Current Employee - Administration in Washington, DC

    I have been working at SEIU full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent benefits (strong health insurance, pension, many vacation days)
    Overall commitment to social justice values and progressive ideals
    Opportunities to work in event, people, and political organizing

    Cons

    Campaign mentality may be difficulty for some - organization changes its focus of its work and its efforts. Need to be flexible more so than some may be willing.
    Introverted people may have some difficulty finding a good fit.
    Vacation pay is often not used because of high workload/high commitments.
    Staff union has difficulty fighting managers who don't act according to good principles.
    Management and staff pay increases will be very low/nonexistent in near future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers need to show more consistency between labor union principles and their own principles and practice.
