On a typical day at work I would come in and begin working on whichever project I was currently on, I would maybe have a meeting or two to review with my supervisors or talk to others in the company about research for my materials.
IEEE has been well-known for bad management. In recent years, they've gotten rid of some of the worst offenders, but, unfortunately, have replaced them with internal candidates who are not much better.
It can be a great place to work, but much depends on the department or group you get into. If you have a bad manager, or a manager who treats staff badly, you're pretty much on your own. Senior management and HR exist only to support management, and will not intervene on employees' behalf, short of gross harassment or similar conduct.
High pressure, high visibility, easy to point finger at
Operative (Current Employee) – Piscataway, NJ – April 29, 2015
This so called not-for-profit shop is doing everything the hard way, and then, managers are so happy that they did it, so they can go hi-5ing, singing and dancing. They email you after hours. Lots of unnecessary pressure, high visibility, easy to point finger at, changing directions, and knowledge is passed 1 teaspoon at a time.
An ideal workspace for volunteers in Electrical Engineering field
Secretary and vTools Coordinator (Current Employee) – Middletown, PA – March 13, 2015
As a volunteer at IEEE, I have been able to connect with different professional and technical personnel in different fields. It gives me an immense pleasure to help the members to access professional career development resources, technical symposiums and similar events, etc.
Plain and simple, I loved my time at IEEE! Employees are so professional - no back stabbing or politics and the company truly values their employees. There is a reason why it has been voted as one of the best paces to work in NJ for sveral years in a row - it is a great place to work with many perks!
Branch Chair (Former Employee) – Rexburg, ID – May 28, 2014
IEEE student branch at BYU-Idaho provided opportunities for many of us to work on projects we otherwise would not have. It is a great door opening institution for us to learn about new technologies and get involved with the community.

Executive (Current Employee) – NJ – January 25, 2013
Very business focused yet cares greatly for its employees. Salaries are on par, cadillac benefits plan. Bonus plan could be better. Many long term employees who have had a variety of jobs. Rich mentoring environment
