    Pros

    The people are really top notch -- and the organization supports a culture of growth and respect.

    Cons

    It can move very fast for a trade association -- and folks wear many hats.

    A great place to work!

    Jul 13, 2022 - Director in Washington, DC

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Very welcoming place to work with fantastic benefits. Staff are very friendly and willing to help out especially when you are new. I have completed my first year here and still feel like there is lots to learn. There is no posturing from leadership and transparency when it comes to communications with staff. There's flexibility and an understanding that we are all people with lives outside of work. We have the ability to telework, or come into the office or be hybrid with no pressure to do one or the other.

    Cons

    The only con is that the organization itself is growing and quite diverse while the membership itself still has a ways to go. However, there is a concerted effort to ensure that it happens.

    Great mission & people; can be frustrating b/c of outdated processes

    Pros

    Really wonderful, supportive, friendly colleagues. CEO and Sr. Mgmt care about the employees. Good mission supporting America's small banks.

    Cons

    Held back a bit by outdated internal technology and processes (which was in the process of being updated when I left). Many people at the company have been there for aaaagggessss, which shows it's a good place to work, but could also contribute to process and tech stagnation.

    Great people and great benefits

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    ICBA has established an culture where every employee strives to accomplish the mission of creating and promoting an environment where community banks flourish. The executive leadership team is led by a visionary CEO, who, as a 3rd generation banker, understands the Association's membership on a more personal level than anyone could, and this shows by her dedication to its employees. The CFO and her staff work across the various departments and subsidiary companies to provide an unparalleled level of attentive, efficient, and effective customer service to all stakeholders and the Chief of Staff works to bring everyone together in an inclusive and collaborative manner across states lines. The education department is top notch, convention is of the highest quality you will go to, and government relations team is one of the most effective you will find inside the beltway. Oh, and the benefits are amongst the best in DC … by far.

    Cons

    At times, the organization can get caught up in it's own complexities and that encourages a reporting structure that is unclear across its subsidiary companies.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Easy to come in, do your work and go home People have been employed there for decades Low to no drama Like working for the government but the benefits are better and free Awesome work space and location next to Metro Great place to get experience without high pressure Older work force who don't like change, so very stable and consistent Solid industry represented by the organization Paid parking and Metro If you can make it to the top, the pay is out of this world according to the 1099's (BMW's for executive management, special insurance, first class travel, bonuses)

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility or promotability Poor internal communication Low employee morale/employees fear management Employees are equipment in attaining the organizations goals Poor salaries/low pay Very antiquated hierarchy of management who hold onto power instead of empowering others Non-functioning human resources department/high turnover in the roll Employees are sometimes bullied by managers Poor performers and abusive managers are not dealt with, fired or disciplined.
