    I have been working at United States Olympic Committee

    Pros

    Getting to work with Olympic athletes and Olympic hopefuls year-round is very energizing and unique. USAV has gone to great lengths to keep the benefits (health, life, etc) affordable despite rising overall costs. You start with 10 days of vacation, 3 personal days, and 7 sick days, so that's convenient. Most of the management level is easy to work with and good at communicating with their immediate subordinates.

    Cons

    Being a non-profit NGB, the average pay scale is much lower than what you'd be paid to do the same task load elsewhere. There is almost always too much to do and not enough people to do it, so there is a lot of overlapping of job duties into other depts., which gets frustrating after while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take time to take care of your interior employees...we're the ones who make it possible for the external face (the teams and coach/ref staff) of USAV to function.

    Sounds great, but inconsistent and always changing leadership destroys great potential

    I have been working at United States Olympic Committee

    Pros

    * Some of the most passionate people I've ever ever known.
    * Below senior executives, salaries are poor for top performing staff.
    * Nice 403b contribution. Decent medical.
    * Travel
    * Olympics can be a life changing experience

    Cons

    * Below senior executives, salaries are poor for top performing staff.
    * No work life balance
    * No consistent mission or operating behavior.
    * Out of touch BOD - what BOD would change CEOs 13 times in 14 years???
    * Travel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your house in order. Decide on what you want out of executive leadership and promote continuity and consistency. Decide whether you want to be a travel agency or a sport organization and act accordingly. Get off the fence. Don't throw around the words "world class" without knowing what that really means.
