    Pros

    Great mission, great employees and members.

    Cons

    No career advancement opportunities. Very disappointing considering the size of the association. Management doesn't appear to be in positions to encourage professional development or just doesn't know how. Association wide it seems there is a lack of clarity in what policies are in place and what is expected of employees to get a raise, gain more responsibility and so on.

    I have been working at NRECA full-time

    Pros

    NRECA has good pay and benefits. The work/life balance is relatively easy. There is limited travel. Arlington location is easy to get to from the Metro.

    Cons

    The pace of work is very slow and there is a lot of employee turnover. The office in Arlington is very dated and dingy. Leadership is very political. Limited opportunity for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time to figure out why there is so much employee turnover, since IMHO it can't be too much work or too little pay.

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - A worthy mission
    - Good environment

    Cons

    - Can be slow moving - but that is changing slowly
    - Can be full of silos
    - Some teams do not have enough worker bees and too many decision makers
    - Doesn't feel modern or quite up to speed, despite the company's efforts
    - Does possess many "lifers" which can be a good and bad thing
    - HR moves very slow

    Advice to Management

    Retain new talent instead of seeing them go as there always seems to be an influx of managers here and not enough people to manage.
