    I have been working at Association for Talent Development full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    ASTD had smart, fun people who genuinely cared about furthering the training and development (T & D) field. And, the members are awesome! I made some of my best contacts ever at ASTD through working at conferences and in managing member interest groups. The benefits/total rewards also are really well thought out - they put bigger companies for which I've worked to shame. The President's Award provided incentive for staff to take on some project that not only furthered the employee's career, but also propelled the organization forward.

    Cons

    There is a culture of fear that's perpetuated by the leadership. If you have a challenge, you can't really trust anyone to help you in a constructive way. People just disappeared, and there are frequent layoffs with little honesty as to what's really happening, as the leadership likes "churn." While it's good to have new blood in an organization, the level of churn there is unhealthy and causes a lot of fear, suspicion, and low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you write so lucidly about and really demonstrate that talent is your most valuable resource. Don't treat employees like a transaction - learn to build trust.
