Pros

Compensation is collectively bargained, good benefits and some perks. Hours are good, and micromanagement, while not unheard of, is fairly rare.

Cons

Management is oblivious in many ways, office politics lead to waste and under utilization of human capital. Management training is slight to none, few managers really understand what their role is, staffing levels for the workload imposed are lower than average, with much lip service paid to re prioritizing work. Failed/incomplete projects are often celebrated as successes as a result.

Advice to Management

Worry less about rocking the boat and more about getting ship shape. High performance doesn't mean pep talks, it means cutting back to fully fund what works, not what's politically expedient.

    I worked at National Education Association as an intern

    Pros

    Work with experts, attend education-related events in DC, learn about ed policy at the macro level, got to attend annual conference, only 20 hrs/week so lots of free time to explore the city

    Cons

    Parts of the intern program seemed disorganized at times, not many opportunities to network with other interns, cost of transportation
