    Pros

    The benefits are top notch, and management is very understanding of your needs. Schedules can be very flexible, due to the availability of taking a "half day" of sorts once a week. The longevity of people's careers here is very comforting, and turnover is very low.

    Cons

    Technology needs to be updated and salaries across the board should be reevaluated. There are some discrepancies regarding communication across different areas and departments, but that is understandable.

    I have been working at Florida Bar Association part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, and a very nice place to work. From the upper level management on down, people are very cordial and friendly.

    Cons

    It's more of a small and quiet environment, personally I prefer something a little more busy.

    I worked at Florida Bar Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to work with great benefits.
    Awesome coworkers.
    Opportunities to move up and learn (training in several areas is provided).

    Cons

    Can't think of any right now. I heard people from other departments complaining about their bosses or supervisor, however, I always had a great work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Maybe some review in certain departments will be helpful to create a nice working environment for all employees.

    Pros

    - A high level of recognizing employees when they do good work but generally only in terms of telling them they're doing good instead of tactile rewards.

    Cons

    - A lot of the employees seemingly do very little while others are able to slack off. If you pick up the slack, you're rewarded, but again, only verbally.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more time focused on seeing who is doing what in terms of quantity and quality of work.

    I have been working at Florida Bar Association full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Wonderful benefits: health, dental, pension plan, annual bonus, PTO, paid personal holidays, and paid holidays. Fun annual events.

    Cons

    There are no real cons. The purpose is to serve the members. It is a great place to work and a good college job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Continue to stress the importance of training and educating the employees.

    I have been working at Florida Bar Association full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, free coffee & tea every day, and free popcorn on Friday's.

    Cons

    Employees are treated like 3rd rate citizens. Unless you are the head of a department or higher up the chain, any suggestions or criticism you voice falls on deaf ears. New U.S Presidents are more common than raises, and any bonus gets taxed at 40%. Any mis-step is reprimanded immediately, while accolades for good work are as rare as albino whales.

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating the employees like day care children. We want to work. Get out of our way and let us do it. Quit thinking of ways to hold us down. Stop telling us that you can't give raises and then turn around and do building renovations, hire Esposito's for lawn care, renovate the air conditioning twice, etc. We see you spending money on everything except the employees and we don't like it. The happier your employees are, the harder they work for you, which explains why so many people have left recently.

    I worked at Florida Bar Association part-time

    Pros

    Friendly people. Managers always willing to help. Fridays are casual dress days. Nice place to work.

    Cons

    Lawyers you deal with can be rude. However the people in the offices are very nice. Don't let the lawyers get to you.

    Advice to Management

    Keppp doing what you are doing!
