    I worked at NAACP as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to be apart of a historic advocacy organization committed to the needs of people of color.

    I was not a fan of working in Baltimore. It has mediocre young professional scene compared to DC.

    I have been working at NAACP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great work, good environment, and very support teammates.

    Cons

    Very slow to make decisions and hampered by significant internal politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add transparency between leadership and staff. Reduce influence of the board, which is far too large to effectively manage the organization.

    I worked at NAACP as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    -- Open communication
    -- Clear objectives
    -- Positive Environment
    -- Helpful and Flexible

    Cons

    Because it's a long-established organizationw ith a significant history and ties to other large, long-standing organizations, they can be a bit behind in updating policies, procedures, ande integrating new technologies. They also seem occasionally to lean too much on the faith community for recruits, making canvassing work difficult foe some staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another visionary chairperson, bring in new ideas, and step up the involvement in the Dreamers and Same Sex Marriage fights. partner with color of Change and the Courage Campaign. . .
