Pros

Great people, supportive work environment, budget for professional development, mentorship program, vested in the pension after five years, excellent health care benefits and a decent amount of paid time off. There is also an overall commitment inside the union to do big, bold things.

Cons

The internal politics can be extremely challenging, especially as you move up the ladder inside the organization. Too much decision-making by committee. There is also an overall lack of accountability at the highest levels of the organization, where relationships and favor-trading matter more than results.

Advice to Management

Protect your staff from internal politics. Hold all staff accountable to transparent, measurable performance metrics.

    Pros

    SEIU is doing great work. Many of the staff are fantastic and you'll have the opportunity to work on some inspiring campaigns. The pay is reasonable and the benefits are the best I've had.

    Cons

    Internal politics create a toxic work environment. I came to SEIU because I believed in the organization but after several years here I can't take the staff drama. Several individuals take the bulldozer approach to get what they want and senior management rewards that kind of behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Don't jump to conclusions and try to understand things before you issue orders.
