    I worked at IEEE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good and there are a lot of good people working there as well. You just have to be smart though, everything there is about who is who. Who works for who, what position you are in etc. Also, while I was there, if you knew someone, or were related to anyone you were automatically able to get hired. I felt like everyone there was related.

    Cons

    Politics, HR, too much reorganization. HR is extremely corrupt. Now there are those who get into a good department and everyone is fair, or they become buddy buddy with the right person. There was me who ended up in the wrong department and it was so political there, all about kissing butt, which I will never do. People were constantly fired and they were constantly doing reorgs. Hence why they are always hiring. IEEE also has a reputation for unlawfully firing people. Just not a place I would recommend. Also as a younger employee, I felt the elders, especially women, were rude to me.

    Pros

    Great health and other benefits, casual work environment, salaries are in line with other employers in the area and other member associations.

    Cons

    Management gets away with murder and HR does nothing about it. Upper management clueless about how dispirited the workforce is,and doesn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people and shelve your egos and petty squabbles for the betterment of the company.

    Pros

    1. Diversified network globally 2. Supports new initiatives and ideas 3. Due recognition for contributions to the IEEE Society and mankind 4. Amiable work environment with the IEEE blood running thick in the veins of every IEEEian across the globe i.e. everybody is very co-operative and supportive in each other's endeavour and work together to achieve the common goal of benefitting the society. 5. Work is balanced by equal opportunities to have fun!

    Cons

    1. Have to be on your toes and give the best shot possible to deliver results (however, failures, if come after good amount of sincere efforts, are NOT looked down upon, rather , the efforts are appreciated!)

    Pros

    The people at this company really care about you. There is great work/life balance and decent salaries.

    Cons

    Many people who work here stay here for life. This tends to create complacency. Just remember to keep it fresh and new and to move around.

    Pros

    For many years they were great at striving to keep people even when the work changed. They retrained and were committed to the people who invested their lives in the organizations work. Good benefits too.

    Cons

    Change at least at the Computer Society to much more corporate and ruthless sort of attitude from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving beyond the publications into the newer ways of communicating.

    Pros

    Great hours, Great benefits, fairly low stress but also low salary and increases

    Cons

    Lack of good leadership. Fractured management priorities. Despite being more aggressive about developing a singular marketing strategy, the company too much resembles a silo management. Each of the professional societies is run as an autonomous business unit and that's the problem. Do they serve the volunteer leadership? The members/engineers who publish? The scientific community? What about the engineering community in general or even the public at large? Who's your customer?

    Advice to Management

    You need to decide if you run this company or the members/volunteers do. It can't be both
