False promises with low pay

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsThe mission and membership and potential is great.

ConsThey are losing ground because of outdated management habits and there is a lot of unrest between departments because most of the staff is not compensated as well as other non-profit staff members doing the same thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive fair compensation to employees. Follow through on promises. Balance the workforce so there are more staff to do the work (fewer directors - more people getting the work done).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice people, slow to impossible to change.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    I have been working at The Optical Society


    Pros: Great benefits You interact with nice people Great location IF you are in… Cons: VERY if not OVERLY political. Unless you are higher up in the food chain you don't really have a say. You could be the most… Advice to Senior Management: Kill the authority complex and stop politicking all the time. More
