    I worked at NACUBO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work. The people were lovely and everyone had a passion for what they did.

    Cons

    It was hard to help change culture at times because people were set in their ways. It was slow but worked.

    I worked at NACUBO full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, 35 hour work week. Members are great and very dedicated and involved.

    Cons

    The organization is entirely too top-heavy, and decisions are made and haphazardly implemented. The organization used to appreciate its employees and promote cooperation (and advancement from within) much more than they currently do. Now they make it clear that anyone can be replaced, although they do not realize the depth of institutional knowledge they lose until after the fact. You would think NACUBO was a huge corporate entity, but they only employ 50-60 personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at yourselves and recognize that you have gotten too big for your britches. One thing that makes your organization great is your employees. If you want to pat yourselves on the back, do it because you have been able to hold onto such valuable staff for longer than you probably should have. It's not you, but your staff and members that make NACUBO so great.

    I worked at NACUBO as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice office, nice location, wonderful people. Supportive environment.

    Cons

    Some office practices are a still somewhat old-school. But not so much more than many associations. I'd rather have "tried-and-true" to "bleeding-edge and worrisome."

    Advice to Management

    Continue the supportive environment.

    "Good mission, generally good place to work but room for improvement."

    Pros

    An association of college and university CFOs, the work is meaningful. Members are great to work with, and the collegial nature of higher education makes our job of sharing best practices and information easier. The small staff allows room for growth. Flexible personnel polices, 35 hour work week, good benefits including great retirement savings. Part of active DC association community.

    Cons

    Employees are not always valued as they deserve to be and information is not shared forthrightly. Very slow to recruit new employees to fill vacancies, counting on existing staff to cover for months. Investment in technology often not driven by business needs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to staff morale, and get more involved.
