    Pros

    Constantly changing work environment with a supporting work culture.

    As a professional society with Volunteer oversight, decision making authority can be ambiguous and at a pace slower than private sector.

    Lead by example.

    Pros

    The reason to work with you is to gain more knowledge in my area of study. Also, I want the chance of a internship to learn how my career is applied in the workplace. Finally, to develop speaking English.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges that I could find is speak fluent English and do not understand the people.

    I worked at IEEE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a great atmosphere in may respects- smart people at leading technology companies were the constituents. Worked at a global level influencing technology, policy and trade. Financial stable, growing organization, that is respected internationally

    Cons

    Very process driven culture. Influence of board members from leading academic and technology organizations sometimes conflicted with goals of the organization. Slow to change in many respects. Many "second wage earners" who are less interested in career progressions means that it is low key in some respects but also that there is a lot of "dead weight".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better alignment of incentives and communication with employees would make it a more rewarding work environment.

    I have been working at IEEE full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are many wellness benefits, the campus is beautiful and the organization does a good job of providing opportunities for employees to network and get to know co-workers. There is also ample training opportunities and a tuition reimbursement program. And most departments offer the opportunity to work from home one day a week.

    Cons

    If you are used to corporate life and generous bonuses you will not find that here unless you are an executive. Performance review policy is a little strange because leadership peers discuss who can/should get a designated level and increase.

    Pros

    Cafeteria, location, somewhat work-life balance

    Cons

    "If there is a hard way - we will find it" - should be a motto for this .org

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and don't torture e-es with idiotically horrendous 6 mo reviews. Learn how to work among yourself.

    Pros

    Finally a company where management understands the concept of "A happy employee is a productive employee." There has been positive team building, innovative ways to move the company forward and they actually listen to what the employees have to say (both good and bad). It is not surprising to see the CEO walking through the halls with a smile on his face and being very friendly or stopping to chat to the employees. The employees are amazing to work with and very friendly. The benefits are great and they are constantly implementing new things to help keep us both happy and healthy. Some programs offered are onsite chair massages, a bicycle program (where you can check out a bike and take advantage of a nice bicycle ride in the park next to the office), medical premium incentive programs and onsite yoga & rumba classes.

    Cons

    Depending on what department you work in promotions are slow in obtaining.
