    Pros

    good people to work with, great benefits. $0 copay for both medical and dental

    because it's a union, pays are not great, but the benefits more than makes up for it

    Pros

    Great introduction to the labor movement, membership is an inspiration, you get to work on some very interesting projects and your co workers are generally interesting people.

    Cons

    labor movement politics are basically petty and ridiculous. if you find many "democratic" organizations (any by many I do mean MANY) fighting over 8% total "market share" just plain silly - you may want to find a different non profit job or go into the private sector

    Pros

    SEIU is a great place to work. But like any large organization there are lots of internal politics which often affect the work that gets done - or fails to get done. As well as the decision making when it comes to making political decisions that affect the union as a whole.

    Working with the members is the best part.

    Cons

    Def a lot of long hours and plenty of travel depending on where you are work. Sometimes, change within the union is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time building up quality managers from within the union. At the same time, should not be afraid to hire high quality people who come form outside the world of labor.
