I worked at SEIU full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, decent mission, and interesting relationships.

Cons

The office in Salem, Oregon was cold and lacked any sense of growth. The leadership believed what they believed and did not listen to alternative ideas. If you contested held beliefs you would be pushed out. Found there to be prejudice as well.

Advice to Management

Open your ears or watch the union dwindle.

    I have been working at SEIU full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent benefits (strong health insurance, pension, many vacation days)
    Overall commitment to social justice values and progressive ideals
    Opportunities to work in event, people, and political organizing

    Cons

    Campaign mentality may be difficulty for some - organization changes its focus of its work and its efforts. Need to be flexible more so than some may be willing.
    Introverted people may have some difficulty finding a good fit.
    Vacation pay is often not used because of high workload/high commitments.
    Staff union has difficulty fighting managers who don't act according to good principles.
    Management and staff pay increases will be very low/nonexistent in near future.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need to show more consistency between labor union principles and their own principles and practice.
