    Pros

    Departments with new managers are moving in positive directions.
    Good work-life balance when you have small children
    Nice views from offices
    Close to home

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunity. I wouldn’t recommend taking a job here mid-career and hope to move up. Need to be here at least 10 years to be promoted.
    HR means well, but isn’t effective outside of recruitment and benefits.
    Management teams who’ve been here a long time are self-protecting.

    Advice to Management

    My department welcomed new people with fresh ideas. Other departments pretend to care, but want to stay stuck with bad managers no one else wants. Others know who you are and think you should fix this.

    CEO and COO should look at where VP and Directors have average of 15 yrs + with company. This is where you’ll find the managers who don’t have leadership skills and don’t do their jobs. Move under performing managers out or over. I have friends who are looking to leave because of this.

    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.
