    I worked at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy full-time

    Pros

    Great cause, improving the safety of recreational boating all across the nation. . Great work/life balance... no one is ever questioning your time off, or needing to take care of family matters. This is the result of a small staff, with about 50% working remotely.

    Cons

    Like many non-profit organizations, you are limited in what you can and cannot do. Especially with a lot of people working remotely.

    I have been working at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at NASBA make it the great place it is. They have amazing benefits as well. Great newly remodeled facilities.

    Cons

    There is no salary growth

    I worked at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, healthcare options are great, PTO is above average. The work hours are optimum. Working downtown (as an extrovert) is amazing. HR truly cares but has little power over leadership.

    Cons

    As much as the organization wants to progress, it cannot / will not. Leadership stumbles of the most simple decisions. Salaries are sub-market value and leadership defends the pay by claiming the benefits are great.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing the same senior management push away valuable resources. Start holding them accountable. As the CEO says (his desk plate proves it), the buck stops here (literally and figuratively).

    I worked at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy as a contractor

    Pros

    Downtown, swankly building, Parking allowance(if you're full-time)

    Cons

    Very corporate culture, strict adherence to security policies that doesn't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Technology team needs to be competitive in terms of a fun work environment if its wants to attract and retain better candidates.

    Pros

    Awesome place to work. Do not miss on a chance to work here.

    Cons

    Location is heart of downtown. Traffic can be a problem.


  6. "Great benefits but low pay and low room for growth. Plus poor managers."

    Pros

    The benefits are great and some of the people are great. It's a good place to start out.

    Cons

    Pay is low and a lot of the managers have been there for a while but have no business managing people or even departments.

    Advice to Management

    Do an internal review of the current management and bring in some new people just because people have been there for 15-20 years doesn't mean they are good at their job. You are getting poor reviews because you aren't bringing on better management and getting rid of the ones who can't manage. And pay your employees what they are worth.


  7. "Great starter job with little to no growth possibility."

    I have been working at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The organization offers 12 paid sick days a year, 12 paid corporate holidays a year, 13 paid vacation days a year, and healthcare is covered by the organization with very good copay rates.

    Cons

    NASBA has had new leadership for the past few years which has dramatically effected the morale of the organization in a negative light. Employees no longer taught the company as a great (or the best) place to work.

    Advice to Management

    As the former CEO stated: People, Position, Passion, Profit.

    I have been working at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits package. A few wonderful employees who have been able to maintain small company feel despite drastic company changes.

    Cons

    Little to no investment in employee growth and development. A small company who has recently gone from a small company mentality to a large company mentality losing focus on its main line employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees.

    Pros

    At one time it was a dynamic environment with some good people working there. Not any more.

    Cons

    management, culture, attitude towards employees, ego

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to check their non-profit status.

    I have been working at National Association of State Boards of Accountancy full-time

    Pros

    The time off benefit is very nice.

    The insurance plan is very rich.

    They pay 6.1% of your salary into a retirement regardless of whether or not you pay

    Cons

    You will not be compensated accurately

    The company is small and there is not much plan for growth so you will only be promoted when somebody leaves however they have no succession plan so they usually hire externally

    Average Employee Moral is terrible

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth.

    Listen to the professionals that you hired, let them perform their jobs and give them the tools to do so.
