    Pros

    I had a great experience at the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.
    I enjoyed attending the events that they hosted and I got to gain great work experience.

    -Very organized culture
    -Clear expectations
    -Great learning experience for an intern

    Cons

    I was still in college during my internship and there was a little bit of an learning curve for me to transition into the work process.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, great job. Keep it up.

    Sometimes it feels isolated to be in your cubicle all day. Maybe organizing Friday team lunch will help cultivated a more engaging culture.

    Pros

    Met with the best; felt like participating in planning the future....allowed interactive feed back with my projects, until the economy declined, and I had to close my architectural firm around 2010

    Cons

    There is not enough time of funds in my personal account to contribute to my membership anymore! But I will not hesitate to rejoin when things change

    Advice to Management

    Reach out more to "Grassroots", Increase International Activity (not just Pacific Rim)

    Pros

    Respected business advocacy organization, ability to work on a wide-range of public policy issues, great access to business leaders and elected officials.

    Cons

    Non-profit salary is a downside and raises are few and far between. Health benefits are just OK. Can get stuffy at times

    Advice to Management

    pay a higher salary and be more consistent with recognizing performance with enhancements. Stop being so old school with office culture.


  6. Good place to start when you are moving to LA and like politics

    Pros

    No age discrimination. Good benefits. Good place if you are at the end of your career. They really care about the wellbeing of their staff members.

    Cons

    Bad financial management. Soft leadership. Tendency to waste membership funds for vanity projects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think the exchange of light bulbs will solve financial problems. Be honest about management intentions.
