    Ok company, difficult experiences in certain departments

    Former Employee - Coordinator in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Coordinator in Washington, DC

    I worked at ASAE full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Early closings before major holidays. Educational opportunities for staff at the various meetings/conferences held throughout the year. Annual meetings and conferences allow staff volunteers the ability to travel with the company and interact with its members.

    Cons

    Dated company culture masquerading as innovative. Management-level staff is only so because of longevity with the company and not necessarily based on skill-set or managerial qualities. Job titles and descriptions are ill-defined, with clear power totems and little to no room for advancement. The company is departmentaly siloed, often creating friction between various teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create mandatory manager-level training systems, and evaluate their abilities regularly. Recognize and reward hard workers and major project contributors regularly.

    I worked at ASAE full-time

    Pros

    Cares about its employees - and it shows.
    Great bennies including generous 401k.
    Follows federal work calendar.
    Good people to work with.
    Competitive starting salary (see cons).

    Cons

    Office politics can be a factor.
    Little opportunity for promotion.
    Negotiate the best starting salary you can get because the annual raises are typically only a couple percent (assuming satisfactory performance).
    Hard to tell where you stand with your supervisor, but that can vary depending on the person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent.
    Would have liked the CEO and COO to be more visible and inviting.
    Overall a good job in fostering a desirable workplace.

    I have been working at ASAE full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    fun meetings, great education, great colleagues. Pretty decent work life balance. Access to a lot of tremendous learning opportunities and great access to additional job opportunities.

    Cons

    There is not a whole lot of upward mobility. Outside associations look up to ASAE, but it too doesn't always do things as perfectly as one would expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a strong corporate like mentoring program to hand pick future leaders and retain them, by training them in various areas...and let them know they are on this track.
