    The company has a very welcoming atmosphere and everyone strives toward a common goal to make USSA the best in the world.

    As a member of the communication department I witnessed moments of short staffing.

    Pros

    A lot of passion for the sports and athletes and the Olympic movement.

    There are a select few awesome individuals.

    I worked at U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great time working at the USSA. I learned a ton from my supervisors (best supervisors of my career!) and got to experience some very cool events. Over the course of my tenure there, I was able to take on a variety of different responsibilities, interact with most departments and work with some of the best athletes in the world. I definitely grew a lot as a person and professionally during my time there.

    Cons

    Compensation and growth are tough. It's a nonprofit, so you won't be making a lot of money (and Park City isn't a cheap place to live). Benefits exist, but they aren't great. Growth is challenging because, although there is turnover in the lower roles, there is little turnovers in management. There are a lot of qualified people trying to get into very few higher spots.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to grow employee salaries to keep talent around.
