Nonstressful Environment with Great Benefits
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 22, 2014
USAC offers a wide variety of benefits and provides a workplace that is fairly non-stressful. Very few employees work late into the evening or on the weekends and the work week is almost always just 40 hours. The leadership team is very bureaucratic and promotions do not always go to the most qualified individuals.
Pros
L Street Location, No Long Hours
Cons
Weak Leadership Team

Poor leadership
Manager level (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 29, 2013
Few opportunities to advance once you are beyond entry level. Essentially no raises, even for top performers, for several years. Promotions also come with least possible salary increase. If you are looking for a mission-focused job, this isn't it - but if you want to keep the status quo, this may be the place for you.

Benefits are outstanding. Flexible work schedule.
Pros
Benefits, work schedule
Cons
No leadership, no raises
