    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance for an 8:45 AM - 5 PM job, M-F, closed weekends. Also the bar is looking to modernize many systems and tries its best to work on a relatively fixed revenues -- the best thing is that the bar is NOT a tax burden on the state as 100% of its revenues comes from its member attny annual fees.

    Cons

    Too Much politics, old way of doing things, very paper-based, an organization run by attnys for attnys of course. Union environment for the bargaining unit: SEIU makes a manager's job more difficult in being flexible with its staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accessible to all FTE staff and more engagement and responsible (project management-wise). Be less of a bully in certain departments and more of a true leader rather than a sr. manager who intimidates or makes threats.
