    Pros

    Work-balance is okay. Sometimes it's slow.

    Cons

    The cons outweigh the pros: Severe micromanagement, from a senior level down, grossly uncooperative and stubborn people, managers who are unqualified for their jobs and poor pay.

    Employees low on organization's priorities

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Fair salary and benefits; decent work hours.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued, little to no flexibility for reasonable accommodations. Middle management is inept, leaving team members to "manage up" or fight against a bottleneck.

    Volunteer leaders are all that matters--staff doesn't matter

    Apr 12, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits. Easy walk from either train station. A few opportunities for building good teams.

    Cons

    I've never worked at an association before where the volunteer leaders are treated like royalty--we were actually instructed NOT to ever talk to a board or committee member, as if we were too stupid to say anything intelligent, even though we were the ones carrying out the work for the projects determined by the Board and the Committees. The director-level staff employs this same attitude--if you're not a director, not only are you not worthy of ever attending a director-level meeting, you are also not able to talk to a director outside of your area without permission from your own director. And forget about getting credit for any work that you do. You're supposed to just be happy you still have a job. Job security is awful--good people get let go all of the time for emotional reasons on the part of the all-knowing directors. And the CEO? If you're lucky, you'll see him about 4 times a year. Walking the halls and talking to staff? Why would he do that? He already knows everything there is to know to run the association.
