    I have been working at College Board full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice Benefits for full time employees

    Cons

    - Rampant Politics (I've seen teams outright refuse to work with each other)
    - Incredible amounts of red tape that make it impossible to get things done quickly
    - Personnel decisions made based on cronyism, not competence.
    - Tools and processes that are at least ten years out of date.
    - Many managers more interested in protecting their fiefdoms than in getting anything done.
    - Contractors are treated the worst I've seen in over twenty years
    - Management who thinks nothing of setting unreasonable standards (ex: mandatory unpaid overtime)
    - Top-heavy organization, hiring more directors even as workers are being laid off


  2. "Satisfying work"

    Pros

    - Meaningful work

    - There's no other organization that affords its employees the ability to make such meaningful impact with educators nationwide.

    Cons

    - National organization, but can feel disconnected at times. New leadership is working to turn that around. Change is expected within the current year.
