No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great opportunity to meet and speak with tons of members. Not a long hiring process, because they're looking for a lot of bodies to throw at problems.

Cons

Pretty much everything wrong you can imagine senior management of an organization could do, they did. Good employees would be punished for making bad, but protected employees look bad. If you have a Rabbi, you're protected, otherwise only a matter of time till you're fired. But once you reach a certain level, you're certain to fail up.

Advice to Management

See new employees as a resource worth investing in. Hold senior/middle management accountable.

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

    Pros

    Work with and get to know interesting people. Connected to different industries such as building service, health care, or janitors. Excellent benefits and health insurance.

    Cons

    Very little collaborative attitude, ironically. Expectation of 50-60 hours of work per week. Corporate attitude where the old timers know better.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box and aim for a healthier staff that can achieve work-life balance.
