    I worked at IEEE part-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are brilliant, passionate, funny and tight-knit. Lots of creative freedom, and a strong interest in trying out new things.

    Legacy organization that moves a little slow. Long planning periods, and projects often get bogged down by involving too many departments

    Make room to try more lightweight sprints and quick experiments, rather than year-long roadmaps for projects or editorial schedules.

    The employees are amazing to work with (if you are a full-time employee) and the volunteers are are some of the most intelligent people that I have ever met.
    PTO and benefits are good.

    Director-level and up are very proud of themselves for seemingly few accomplishments.

    The organization has lost focus. Taking away member benefits will not increase membership.
