Pros

Good location - shuttle service provided to/from Metro
Excellent work/life balance & benefits package
Highly respected organization

Cons

Change-averse & elderly senior management
Over-reliance on institutionalized practices ("We do it that way b/c that's the way we've done it.")
No opportunity for advancement
Low salaries (typical for nonprofit industry, however)
"Too lily-white" (by one senior manager's own admission)
Talks diversity but seldom practices it (most of staff is white female)
Passive-aggressive management styles
Mostly populated by career educators with little to no actual business experience
Progressive political outlook practically a requirement for employment

Advice to Management

Too many managers in senior positions are entrenched "lifers" who are basically clock-punching before heading to Florida. Organization desperately needs to start walking the diversity talk it so regularly heralds in its publications. The flagship magazine has been elderly white female for well over a decade if not more; and the organization only hired its first minority editor a few years ago. Opportunities for advancement should be created to encourage younger staffers to remain with the organization vs. leaving to find work elsewhere after 2-3 years.; and the progressive political mindset needs to be re-examined since, unless you are an elderly woman with a Democratic leaning, there is not much of a place for you at this association.

    Pros

    Free parking and a teleworking option

    Cons

    Too many upper managers with little to no business sense; not enough people who actually do the work. Basically, it's a for-profit business masquerading as a non-profit. They are so focused on the bottom line and increasing revenue that the company is losing focus on helping teachers. Why? Because teachers have no money to spend. I find it to be a really negative place to work. I can't wait to be in a position to quit and do something else.
