    I worked at National Retail Federation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work-life balance is great. Very good benefits package. Great learning opportunities about how the retail industry work and how Washington DC work. A warm familial environment since employees tend to stay for years.

    Cons

    Salaries are decent for a nonprofit but not competitive industry wise. People stay there for decades so the work culture tends to be antiquated in some regards.

    I worked at National Retail Federation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Supports an industry that creates 1/3 of America's Gross Domestic Product and one in five American Jobs. Different departments work well together.

    Cons

    Organization is in transition. Office will be moving to a new location in Washington. Still a good place to work; however, the transition is creating high stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management could benefit by engaging with mid and lower level staff.

    I worked at National Retail Federation full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and access to industry executives. If you're in government affairs or public affairs, it's a very good place to work and you'll be surrounded by A players. If you're in a revenue-generating role, it's a different story.

    Cons

    Too much "we do this because it's been done this way" attitude. Not willing to take risks.

    I have been working at National Retail Federation

    Pros

    The benefits and flexibility of work schedules. The industry NRF represents is always reinventing itself and is relevant to each and every person on this planet.

    Cons

    Pay isn't even close to industry standard, but its to be expected for association work. Some of the benefits make up for this though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. I think overall you're doing an excellent job.

    I have been working at National Retail Federation

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn, opportunity to lobby on Capitol Hill. Its nice to travel to other cities and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Travel can be required and the busiest time of the year conflicts with Christmas and New Year's Eve/DAy.
