Pros

Senior leaders believe in providing the environment for leaders in which to lead, one that is self-directed and collaborative. If younare looking for a chain of command, micro-management, this isn't it. The mission is the best, the members are great and staff are experts in their fields and very hard workers. Pay scales are regularly reviewed with maintaining staff over the 50th percentile in pay and the benefits have been recognized as tops in the association field. Staff with high emotional intelligence is valued with the ability to lead their own initiatives.

Cons

It is such a great place to work that staff tend to stay so it is hard to be promoted to senior leadership positions. Some staff have become disenchanted with the lack of ability to be promoted for tenure but that's not what promotions are about. If you want to stay you need to be satisfied with the work, the potential for increasing responsibilities and pay but not the title. If the title s important, then dont work here or move on.

Advice to Management

Apply organization wide strategies to common needs but otherwise keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    excellent cause, very good benefits, pockets of really good, competent staff, very flexible work environment, good for work-life balance, parking on site and public transportation accessible, staff care about one another, employees often solicited for opinions, lots of opportunity for employee interaction through social events, good promotion opportunities for lower level employees, newly completed office renovation - nearly all employees have offices with doors, including most administrative staff, tend to have the latest in Microsoft technology, good emphasis on environmentally friendly policies, especially for meetings, members are personable, generally a pleasant work environment, leadership is pretty truthful in sharing organizational realities - almost to a fault!

    Cons

    there is a executive leadership void, discord at senior leadership level, incongruous application of personnel policies, difficulty connecting the dots between different parts of the organization, long-term employees tend to inhibit fast-tracked initiatives and create obstacles to new ideas, large-scale initiatives don't get translated into individual or department-level strategies - organizational strategy doesn't really exist, not plugged in to DC area association industry, IT has a heavy hand in organizational decision-making, no promotion opportunities from midlevel to senior level, poor dental benefits, issues with conflict avoidance - executive leadership team isn't dealing with the real problems - they tend to pick the low-hanging fruit, but never get to the root of problems, not on board with telecommuting, board leadership is not engaged

    Advice to Management

    Consider negative impact of tenured staff, address conflict, keep up with the great benefits and plug in to DC association community
