    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at National League of Cities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    working with local elected officials; colleagues; goal of raising the concerns of cities and towns over national legislative policy

    Cons

    senior management team; lack of transparency, honesty, and openness of management team; lack of effective legislative strategy; ineffective relations with congress

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging; stop managing up; manage down and give your staff the freedom and flexibility to be creative and solutions oriented rather than focusing on process.
