No opinion of CEO

I have been working at SEIU full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

SEIU is doing great work. Many of the staff are fantastic and you'll have the opportunity to work on some inspiring campaigns. The pay is reasonable and the benefits are the best I've had.

Cons

Internal politics create a toxic work environment. I came to SEIU because I believed in the organization but after several years here I can't take the staff drama. Several individuals take the bulldozer approach to get what they want and senior management rewards that kind of behavior.

Advice to Management

Don't jump to conclusions and try to understand things before you issue orders.
