I have been working at National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) full-time (More than a year)
Benefits are really great (7.5 hour work days, teleworking after six months, reimbursement for phone bill costs) and you get to work with passionate people who are knowledgeable about what they do. My position also involved a solid amount of travel, which I loved, along with annual opportunities to attend conferences. A lot of independence when it comes to managing your own projects. My manager was honestly one of the best managers I've ever had, which also made the experience extremely positive. I got to work with a lot of really great people who I will definitely miss.
As with any office space, there is a solid amount of interoffice politics that could be difficult to keep up with at times, but I chalk that up to human nature. Lots of turnover in staff. Kind of a top-heavy organizational structure without a lot of room for advancement. Still overall a very pleasant place to work. A couple of issues when it came to actually *acting* on the organization's values, primarily coming directly from the prior CEO (ie, absolutely no mention of the LGBT community in press release about Orlando shooting).
Advice to Management
When there is turnover in very high-level individuals within the organization, a bit more communication would be greatly appreciated.
I applied online. I interviewed at National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) (Washington, DC).
I got a call about a week after applying to come in to interview. Interviewed with an analyst for about 45 min and received the offer about 2 weeks later.
