My biggest beef is that most of them (not all) are run by left wing goon squads and their dues paying members have no voice. Leaders are usually chosen by a handful of radical "delegates" at a convention and the members get no chance to vote.
At local meetings, where "delegates" are chosen, a handful of strong-arm goons chase off any member that opposes she local leadership.
Kinda like the democrats operate.
