    Pros

    This organization is founded on noble causes.
    Good Innovation - Great Organization
    Colleagues are smart and nice
    VOLUNTEERS - They work, they create and they direct the organization

    Cons

    IT management has been chaotic. No continuity
    The current IT in-charge is totally CLUELESS of IT.
    Who decided to get this RAT. Many feel that this fellow is a lunetic and unfit to be CIO.

    Advice to Management

    Foster noble culture first.
    Give a boot to chameleons and bully’s. They eat away the nobility in the founding vision.

    Slow atmosphere makes other offices a bit more attractive to the younger audience.

    I have been working at IEEE full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance is awesome, especially for those with kids. The benefits are pretty good and most departments seem to have a "family" like vibe. Everyone is very friendly and helpful when you have questions.

    Cons

    New employees from outside the company aren't shown a lot of respect when they first start. Upper management favors those who have been here for years and shuts down new ideas, especially from new employees. You're often told "this is how we've always done it" or "do it this way because I said so". It also doesn't feel like there is a lot of room for growth, many people have had the same titles for 5+ years with no promotion/opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the morale of your team and don't play favorites with team members. Employee engagement is a major concern of upper management, but when employees voice concerns/frustrations they usually aren't addressed.
