  1.  

    nice people but a serious lack of leadership at the Executive Director Level

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at USBC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good sport, good coworkers,nice office building to work out of, excellent location and decent pay for a non profit

    Cons

    Lack of leadership at the ED level, board is way to involved in decisions, very political

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone who is not afraid to make changes to the organization...the company is bleeding to death and someone needs to be given the empowerment to make decisions to fix the problem...empower your employees!!!

    I worked at USBC (less than an year)

    Pros

    In general i though the pppl are nice but felt management caused horrible treatment .But the sport I will love 4 forever

    Cons

    Opinion- board ripped the best ppl out for money/ revenge to downsize- better jobs in merchandising for bowling, dont bother here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they will sink the sport and not care - bowlers - u think u ll be treated right?, they offer nothing!!!!!!
    Opinion yet again please explain -USBC = your budget? , Bpaa-= sponsor rumors, ?? get back to our sport! and service!!!!

    Not bad, a bit slow, a bit misdirected as a company sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Comfortable work environment.

    Cons

    In 5 years they went through 2 down sizings and eliminated positions including mine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The board and higher ups need to focus on bringing in income and not allow membership to dictate every decision because they don't want yearly membership fees to be increased. Based on a lack of job security and the number of employees I saw get released in the 5 years I was there I would caution anyone applying for a job with them.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Arlington, TX

    I have been working at USBC

    Pros

    It's a good place to work ONLY if you love bowling and the politics that go with it.

    Cons

    If you're not among the Higher management favorites, then forget it. Employees are treated like crap. USBC is one place where there's almost no value for actual talent. Matter of fact it is one company where I have seen the breed of the most incompetent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to value your sincere employees.

    Former Employee - Research Engineer in Arlington, TX

    I worked at USBC

    Pros

    A Love of bowling, great workers, ability to travel, dealing with normal people at conventions, ability to learn on the fly.

    Cons

    Exceptionally poor senior management, board only cares about themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, do not spend $25M to move to Arlington, TX; The board of directors have no concern for the general employees, highly political workplace
