    I worked at SEIU UHW-West & Joint Employer Education Fund full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good benefits
    2. Good salary
    3. Most people care about the work
    4. Flexible scheduling/ comp time

    Cons

    1. Very political- every raises and promotions are given only if you have social capital and you are liked by the decision makers.
    2. You end working a lot of hours on salary without overtime-- as a standard
    3. No sense of team -everyone pursues their self interest.

    Advice to Management

    1. Partner with employees to improve conditions--don't just make unilateral decisions
    2. Promote more from within
    3. Get stronger leaders as managers and directors.

    I worked at SEIU UHW-West & Joint Employer Education Fund full-time

    Pros

    This job pays well if you negotiate intelligently

    Cons

    This job was the worst job I've ever had. No work life balance, you're paid to lie to workers, horrible micromanagerial culture words cannot describe. Not a place to grow if you're a developing organizer/rep. Not a place where skills and perspectives from prior experience is welcome if you're a seasoned organizer/rep. I've never walked out of a job and this was my first. Best decision I ever made.

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits. Coworkers are generally very nice and hardworking. Working with the members was also a positive.

    Cons

    The organization was quite disorganized and not very accountable to the stakeholders and employees. It was hard to get a straight answer to things.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your weaknesses and challenges, if not externally, then at least with yourselves. Covering them up constantly only leads to self-destruction.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at SEIU UHW-West & Joint Employer Education Fund (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great way place where Healthcare workers are advocating for their profession, their patients, communities and families. The members are on the forefront doing great things such as raising the minimum wage, organizing their peers, and bargaining for better contracts.

    Cons

    The management plain and simple, the keep working you at a breakneck speed to meet goals they can't always justify. The directors are also not always transparent with their plans, leaving their staff and union members in the dark. Large scale campaigns are often abandoned halfway through because of poor planning or internal squabbling. The upper management is super clique-y and only the in-crowd ever gets promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Micro-managing, take the feedback from your staff to heart, realize that we have to practice what we preach, take a much better approach to work life balance.

    Dec 28, 2016 – Assistant Director, Administration

    This appears to be a review for a labor union, rather than the Education Fund. The Ed Fund does not run large scale campaigns, we provide training for healthcare workers. Looks as though this was... More

    I worked at SEIU UHW-West & Joint Employer Education Fund full-time

    Pros

    Great staff and work environment, excellent benefits and pay. Flexibility with hours and PTO.

    Cons

    Lot's of different offices, can be disjointed. Frequent layoffs due to lack of grants and funding (fairly typical of non-profits like this).

    Advice to Management

    One thing missing was a clear path to advancement from the entry level up. Everything else about this job was fantastic.

    Pros

    Excellent organization. Personnel and organizational values fit my philosophy of teaching adult learners.

    Cons

    Not enough training venues to be consistently employed with this agency. Such limitations could be the result of not upholding enough educational certifications.

    I worked at SEIU UHW-West & Joint Employer Education Fund as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, paid training, excellent pay and good "teams" on the projects. Most PTL's are willing to work with any must have time off and are willing to go back over (coaching) things you are having trouble with.

    Cons

    trainers may not be someone involved in the project you will be working in and know very little about the project itself, so you might be sent to the floor to start and find that nothing you learned in training was correct. Some projects you will find that they are constantly updating/changing their computer systems. You will also find on many of the projects a daily memo that states ""Bathroom breaks are not necessary every day".
