I have been working at NAFSA full-time

Pros

Hosts a wonderful annual international educator's conference, which is a great opportunity to get to know your colleagues and meet members of the organization you often only collaborate with by phone or e-mail. Excellent benefits (insurance, vacation, etc.); opportunity for growth; great facility in convenient downtown location. Great values and passionate people.

Cons

Organizational changes can be secretive at times; low morale; not great collaboration between departments. Some people are stuck in old routines and are very resistant to change. A few difficult personalities. Lots of turnover.

Advice to Management

Be transparent with your employees; give consistent feedback; work toward open communication with employees and regular collaboration between departments.

    I have been working at NAFSA full-time

    Pros

    This is the place for those pursuing career in international educations. A very laid back work environment. People are friendly and open-minded. NAFSA has an excellent annual conference, which is the place to be for professionals interested in international education.

    Cons

    While we have a new CEO, half year in there is no visible change from the old ways. Most senior managers are very out of touch and secretive. Low pay, high turnover, rigid organizational culture. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Change the office culture and trust your company assets (employees). Unless the new CEO start cleaning house and restructuring, good luck on holding on to motivated-ambitious employees. These people will be gone in 1-2 years tops.
