Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at SEIU full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good experience for new organizers
Conceptually sound campaigns

Cons

Culture of fear and manipulation
Management frequently lies
Work for a union but workers are treated with disrespect and indifference
Members are treated like numbers, all the emphasis is on getting more dues cards-- not leadership development or movement building in the grassroots
Organizers are taught to compete with each other, winning and loosing feel equally bad
OITs are on probation for a year and can be fired at any time-- no sense of job stability

Advice to Management

Sensitivity training. Treat your workers and members with respect.

    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.
