    I have been working at SEIU 775 full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Great mission, high impact. Great team. People get along and collaborate well to get the job done in an often exciting atmosphere, where you get to see and experience the tangible impact you are making on people's lives. The pay is competitive with other similar employers. The benefits are beyond comparison - pension, full family health care, transit passes, parking, plenty of leave time, etc. ALL fully employer...

    Cons

    This is a labor union representing historically underpaid women workers in the health care industry, and it is very involved in progressive politics. If that's not your jam, you will not be happy here. Although the organization has made leaps and bounds in becoming a family-friendly workplace with good work-life balance there are still periods of long hours during peak campaign work. This isn't really avoidable...

    Advice to Management

    Consider a bit better building maintenance for the HQ building to make the physical environment it more like other new economy Seattle companies - elevator and door repairs, better tech in conference rooms, fitness/locker area, less reliance on analog/paper systems, etc.

    I have been working at SEIU 775 full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I was tired to work for corporations that didn't value its employees. At SEIU775 I feel inspired, empowered and proud to be part of a movement that is changing the Home Care Aids' lives for the better. The culture in my organization is in alignment with my beliefs. This is a great place to work with a leadership that cares for his employees and encourages life and work balance.

    Cons

    Like in any other place, there is always room for improvement, in particular if we want to be a role model to other similar Organizations. The only disadvantage I can think about is driving to the office as we are located in downtown Seattle, but I personally commute by public transportation and as a part of my employee benefits I get an orca pass and three free parking validations per month which is super helpful if...

    Pros

    I have been with SEIU 775 for over a decade and what I have seen is an organization that delivers real results for the membership that it serves, along with other working families. At the same time, as a woman, I feel that my leadership is supported and valued in a way that it might not be elsewhere. The individuals who make up this organization are some of the hardest working, smartest and most committed people in the...

    Cons

    Organizers need to work long and irregular hours, with lots of travel- that's just the nature of the work. As such, people need to be really committed to the work and willing to accept the lifestyle of an organizer if that's the position they are applying for. This is the job I did for four years when I first started and it was great for me, I know it can be challenging for others. Also- because we are always working...

    Pros

    This organization has a clear vision and honest leadership that that puts their membership first. Having the privilege to help others and build strong relationships inspires cooperation and honest communication. The work is hard (changing the world isn't easy) but this is the type of work that feeds your soul. The day-to-day offers a lot of flexibility, depending on your position, and a good variety of tasks. The...

    Pros

    I love working here. I can’t see myself working in other organization or doing something different. It’s been more than 12 years. Leadership creates space for all staff to give input in different issues related to work environment (ex. race and social justice) and takes it very seriously. And I’ve never worked in a place with more diversity and more woman on leadership positions than here. In addition to great benefits...

    I work hard and do the best I can within my role because I believe in the fight of working people. Luckily, SEIU775's values are in line with my own and I feel pride and motivation in my work. The level of training and development I've received is more sophisticated and advanced than what I've experienced at previous organizations. Most importantly, the people I work with (peers and supervisors) make it place I look...
