      excellent staff, tremendous mission, great brand, some cutting-edge work; some engaged members

      Cons

      new AIUSA CEO in 2021 has no vision; race relations are terrible; board consistently oversteps and micromanages; extremely toxic relations with board and CEO overall who wield their privilege over the staff; BIPOC staff have left as a result; members are a very mixed bag - the most difficult ones have the most power and use it

      Pros

      We were given snacks and on occasion spent 30-40 mins playing high school games on company time. The games were basically sales exercises.

      Cons

      This has to be the worst company I have ever worked for and the day I was fired, I was pleased. I felt liberated. When I initially decided to apply for Amnesty, I thought I would work with those who would be open minded, believe in equity, and would be caring people who were sincerely trying to make the world a better place. After the 2nd day, it dawned on me that these people, mostly in management were controlling, only saw things their way, and were oppressive and excessively controlling, much like the tyrants that they claimed they were opposing politically speaking. Avoid by all costs.
