    I have been working at 1199SEIU Funds full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great healthcare benefits (full-coverage), child care, pension and tuition-reimbursement benefits. Also a great place of work for people who lack ambition and dont aspire to attain professional growth and development, find no need to question the status-quo and have no desire to contribute toor change an organizational culture that prohibits the "employee voice" unless you are one of the preferred employees.

    Cons

    Lack of organizational transparency, departments work in silos, inconsistent forms of communication, dont practice what they preach, lack of an effective on-boarding process, lack of clear work expectations, managers act more like tyrants than leaders, organizational culture resists change, complacency is the norm and lack an accountability structure.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your egos at the door, listen more and demand less, be concerned with the growth and development of your staff, admit your faults and when you don't know things--you're human and your staff will appreciate transparency. Follow-up on anything you commit to doing, hold your staff and yourself accountable, make sure that you are practicing what you preach and exibiting the behaviors that your expect from your staff. Be PROFESSIONAL. Its not what you ask for, but how you ask--watch your tone.

    Pros

    Benefits are top-notch. I also love their mission: which is to fight for wage parity in the healthcare system.

    Cons

    1199SEIU is by far the worst company I've ever worked for. It's a very hidebound and bureaucratic organization, so if you don't enjoy someone constantly standing over your shoulders pointing out every minute, insignificant detail that no one cares about, best if you find employment elsewhere. Management is utterly clueless and you'll receive little-to-no training.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans and while you're at it, get a clue.
