    I have been working at National Federation of Independent Business full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The sky is the limit for income. Great emphasis placed on motivating employees. Rewards for goals met are generous. Opportunity to learn and grow in position and to move up as well. Co workers are amazing and supportive.

    Cons

    You must be self motivated and a hard worker. You get out of this job what you put into it. The only limit is your own effort.

    I have been working at National Federation of Independent Business full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been at NFIB for 16 years! The absolute best part of my job is our members, small business owners, who I consider my real bosses. As an organization, the passion to fight for and represent NFIB is first. The compassion to help each member of the team succeed is always present. If you truly believe in supporting free enterprise and want a career where you can make your success, then join NFIB. Member advocacy wants motivated and professional self-starters! This is a great job with a passion that anyone can get behind...free enterprise!

    Cons

    If you are not a self-starter that can work collaboratively then this is not for you. But I don't really see this requirement as a con either.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the strategic plan! Moving forward has been the best! And thank you!

    I worked at National Federation of Independent Business full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hours (although getting worse), benefits

    Cons

    100% commission; no PTO; management trying to cut out us, the middlemen, in renewing memberships to save commissions. Income has dropped 30% from 2016. Unless you are a top producer, which is all manipulated, you're SOL

    Advice to Management

    Advocate for your hard-working employees. We've got bills to pay

    Thank you for your comments. 100% commission can be a great opportunity with a non-capped earnings potential for individuals who follow best practices and keep their positive energy flowing. NFIB... More

    Pros

    Pays well. People are friendly. I you are interested in state and federal policy affecting small businesses, this is a great organization.

    Cons

    The job is only part time. It does come with some benefits though. Not much job advancement for this position.

    There is NOTHING positive here!

    Cons

    I worked at National Federation of Independent Business full-time

    Pros

    The individual employees are wonderful people I will be friends with for many, many years. The pay is good. The office is nicely located in the heart of D.C. and surrounded by all sorts of good food.

    Cons

    The leadership is not good. Inexperienced in managing people, nit-picky and babysit. If you want to grow, this isn't the place. If you want to come to work and get paid for being there without having any ideas or doing anything exciting, this is the place for you. The structure is old and outdated with poor HR policies and little to no actual culture. Health insurance benefit is mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    You have incredibly talented and great people working for you. Let them run with their talents!

    I have been working at National Federation of Independent Business full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been associated with NFIB for 15 years. 14 years as a vendor, and 1 year as an employee. The leadership team is phenomenal. Ethics are beyond reproach.

    The mission to promote and protect the rights of independent business owners is something everybody can be passionate about. It's an exciting feeling that permeates from the top down. I am proud to say that I work for NFIB. It is hard work, but a rewarding experience. The compensation is commensurate with your effort and skill set. Can be very lucrative for the right person.

    Cons

    If you don't have a passion for protecting free enterprise, helping small businesses succeed, and you are not a self manager, it's not for you.

    Cons

    100% Commision, there is no consistency. Everyday is different. The job remains mentally challenging.
