    I worked at US Chamber of Commerce full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's been several years since I last worked there but the postitive effect the Chamber had on my professional confidence, experience and composure is still very influential. It may depend on your department or supervisor, but I had a lot of freedom to try new things. The caliber of people you meet within the national membership is second to none. Several executive leaders stand out to me as people I learned from and try to draw from as my career continues to escalate elsewhere. Salary, benefits, perks, and attention to people needs are great, at least they were when I was there.

    Cons

    If you take this opportunity for what it can be, you can be great. If you give up at the first hint of bureaucracy and structure, you will get defeated. It's a large, policy-driven organization. It's a political organization. It is what you make it. If you catch the attention of the executive team, be sure to use that time wisely and impress.

    Advice to Management

    My time there was great. I appreciate the years of opportunity and the overall influence this has had on my career. Thanks for being a good employer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview

    Met entire team and then met with HR to negotiate salary. I learned more about the team and the work than I anticipated which was incredibly helpful in making a decision to join. The HR team was very professional and efficient. The process was painless and quick. They made their decision and the on-boarding process was simple and the team was welcoming.
