    I worked at National Center for Missing & Exploited Children full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The mission and the people combine to make this a workplace where incredible things happen daily.

    Cons

    I wish their salary reflected the cost of living a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Acquire more easy-to-manage health benefits
    - Channel more money to your employees and a little less toward technology.

    Former Employee - Forensic Services Unit Intern in Alexandria, VA

    I worked at National Center for Missing & Exploited Children as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Supervisors were great and very knowledgeable, helpful at all times and very dedicated to their work. Good learning experience for honing interviewing skills and somewhat-investigative skills. Very rewarding as far as the kind of work you are doing (finding missing children)

    Cons

    Job postings were a "formality," for supervisors knew who they were hiring before posting the job. They typically hired friends and past associates, disregarding the hard-working interns who had spent months to years putting in unpaid work and time for an opportunity at a paid position. Very few interns are ever hired here. Very discouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instill in your employees the need to expand job opportunities to the younger generation, particularly those who put hundreds of unpaid hours into working your internships.

    I have been working at National Center for Missing & Exploited Children as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The organization's mission to serve families and their children, under the difficult and sometimes tragic circumstances, also shines through in their commitment to staff. I have found management to be supportive of subordinate staff in word and deed.

    Cons

    Recent upper managemenr changes have had a positive effect, one hopes to see more of the same, as relationships can drive decision making.

    Pros

    Everyone shares the same passion - to help missing and exploited children. People are passionate about their jobs. The management is supportive and encouraging. They are loyal to their employees. The new CEO, John Ryan, has done an amazing job bringing up the moral and he continues to an excellent job.

    Cons

    There are some politics at NCMEC, but you get that any where you work.

    I have been working at National Center for Missing & Exploited Children full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The staff is passionate about the mission of the organization. They come from all over the country to specifically take a position with NCMEC. Most of senior management have been there for many years.

    Cons

    The organization is a bit secretive and exclusive. It appears that they can do this as a private agency operating with public and private funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management would benefit from accepting outside perspectives rather than making their own rules and expecting the world to live by their rules. It would help to train staff to work independently and to promote a truly harmonious work environment.

    Pros

    The mission and people that work at NCMEC are amazing; you can not find a place more dedicated to a worthy cause

    Cons

    Senior Management and Leadership....allow horrible behavior and management styles to run ranpid througout the organization. VERY political, if you know the right people you can do what ever you want and get away with behavior that others lose their job over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some integerity, a spine and make the organizational culture one to be proud of
