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

Pros

Great opportunity to meet and speak with tons of members. Not a long hiring process, because they're looking for a lot of bodies to throw at problems.

Cons

Pretty much everything wrong you can imagine senior management of an organization could do, they did. Good employees would be punished for making bad, but protected employees look bad. If you have a Rabbi, you're protected, otherwise only a matter of time till you're fired. But once you reach a certain level, you're certain to fail up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See new employees as a resource worth investing in. Hold senior/middle management accountable.

    I have been working at SEIU full-time

    Pros

    A sense of purpose abounds
    Most staff are supportive and friendly
    Tremendous benefits, decent salary
    you can move up, do lots of different things

    Cons

    SEIU wears it's reputation for a terrible work/life balance as a badge of honor. Most never work a regular work week and burnout is high.
    Organization tries to do everything, can't focus
    Professional development is a joke.
    Many managers haven't seen a raise in a while

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure senior management really cares so I won't waste your time.
