I have been working at American College of Healthcare Executives full-time (More than 5 years)
The benefits package is very good, and pay isn't bad for association work. They offer $5k year for school, and most people are pretty friendly. Relatively low-stress, depending on your position and the time of year. The business itself is doing very well, financially. A good place to work for someone who wants the relatively slow-pace life of Associations.
Sr. MGT is very slow to change, even though there has been significant turnover in their ranks over the past few years. Some employees are tagged as "pets" and MGT will bend the rules to elevate them more quickly than others. A relatively small company, so upward mobility is limited. Once people get entrenched in a MGT position, they ride it out as long as they can. Several VP hires have been completely incompetent, yet held on to their jobs. Casual day is only once a month. The organization has lost dozens of quality female employees because they won't allow mothers flex-time.
Advice to Management
Give employees a small "win" from time to time. Jeans day, flex time, anything. Just show us that you actually care and hear our complaints.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American College of Healthcare Executives (Chicago, IL) in August 2011.
I had a very positive experience interviewing with this company. The hiring manager was very thorough with me. It felt like a conversation, which is how I think interviews should feel. The HR manager went through all the benefits and perks with me. Although they did not make an offer, it was a very positive experience.
