    I worked at American Dietetic Association

    Pros

    Great job security, awesome downtown location right across from Union Station, competent directors and management, friendly corporate culture and work environment. Also has annual organization outings to build teamwork and friendships

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of opportunity for major career advancement, and the pay is a little low for Downtown Chicago,

    I worked at American Dietetic Association

    Pros

    'Lower' staff are fun and engaging and have a great sense of camaraderie. The volunteer leaders are exceptional and staff truly enjoy seeing the members succeed.

    Cons

    The Senior Management plays political games and doesn't value staff contributions. Several of the Senior Team is verbally abusive towards their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage projects and ensure staff are recognized for valuable contributions. Avoid jumping to conclusions.

    A good association to work for

    I worked at American Dietetic Association

    Pros

    Pay is above and beyond what you'd make at other associations of a similar size. Most people have families so there is a good work/life balance. No one is ever at the office past 5:30 and most positions only have to travel once or twice a year. The location is great--easy to get to whether you live in the city or the suburbs.

    Cons

    Benefits could be slightly better. Also, there isn't much opportunity for growth in most areas. You are only able to move up if someone above you leaves and people tend to stay for decades. There isn't a good career path for most mid-level employees after a while so they lose good talent when people move on to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should create a better benefits package and should develop a way for people to get career growth if they want to stay. Maybe they should develop a leadership program or something.

    Pros

    American Dietetic Association has good benefits and 401K plan.

    Cons

    Upper management is mico-manager and takes credit for department's successes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a new publisher who won't insult professional member authors or drive revenue into the ground.
