    Great experience emphasizing on professional development and hands-on training.

    I would say perhaps better lines of communication.

    I have been working at Nclr (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the Manager is directly evolved with his staff, the environment is friendly, and is possible to be more evolved with the local and national electoral system on different levels.

    Cons

    They work by projects, in that way, here in Orlando they only have one permanent employee, the rest of their staff works until the project is done, each campaign could be as short as one month, and as long as 7 months.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to try to generate a long term jobs, and try to create new positions where the usual employees could feel that they have a more stable job opportunity.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nclr full-time

    Pros

    Passionate and highly talented employees who are dedicated to their work and getting the job done; Great camaraderie; Strong benefits package and time-off policies follow industry standards. Monthly meetings highlight department or individual employee accomplishments.

    Cons

    Diminished opportunities to move up; Upper management is not as open to new ideas as one would hope; Some policy issues get more attention then others. Compensation may be industry standard but if you have a lot of experience coming in expect a pay cut. Training could be increased. Opportunities for personal growth can be hindered by which manager you work for.

    Pros

    When it comes to social justice, there are not many jobs available. The staff is very eager to help develop you, and truly do care about you as an individual.

    Cons

    At least with regards to being an intern, there was a lot of busy work that I had to do. I felt that a lot of the time I wasn't learning anything and instead simply filing papers and getting the mail.

    Advice to Management

    A more structured program for interns.

    Pros

    The NCLR brand and public reputation. Opportunities for advocacy on issues of significance to Latinos. Good starting place for entry level professionals with advanced degrees. Sophisticated issue managers. Sophisticated in-house publishing capabilities.

    Cons

    Harsh, punitive corporate culture. Poor employee morale. Exceptionally poor work-life balance. High rates of staff turnover. For non-senior staff, poor physical environment for work given the emphasis on the production of publishable written work...densely packed cubicles without the benefit of sound proofing. Bottom line...if you have acquired previous professional policy experience in the nonprofit sector or government, skip the pain and don't apply here. You won't tolerate the nonsense.
