    I worked at IEEE

    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 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.

    A GREAT COMPANY TO WORK FOR

    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.

    Current Employee - Director in Piscataway, NJ

    I have been working at IEEE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. I love my team, my boss, and my boss's boss. In addition, I feel a real connection to the mission of the organization and the work we do.

    Cons

    Volunteers control too much, and don't always think about the big picture. Like many organizations, there are significant issues with silos, and these aren't getting better, and may, in fact, be getting worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management Council needs to be on the same page. Staff leadership needs to lead! Lack of speed in decision making and communicating where things stand creates major uncertainties.
