    Pros

    Good smart people. Relatively slow paced work environment (if that's your thing), depending on your department. Good benefits and compensation

    I worked at American Hospital Association full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The AHA provides a strong sense of commitment to their mission, vision and values. The organization offers an outstanding benefits package with a focus on employee needs.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are working with management with inflated egos, which result in a large number of terminations with severance packages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing the great job of engaging employees in the mission, providing great benefits and wellness plans and root out management, who focus on ego versus the needs of the team and the organization.

    Great benefits, terrible management

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I worked at American Hospital Association full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent salaries, nice people, overall.

    Cons

    Bad management. Top level executives talk a good game, but when it comes down to department managers and association top management, a lot of hypocrisy. Many people unhappy with their department management, but stay a long time because of the great benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people well instead of just talking about it. Don't ignore issues with bad managers. Fire them and show that known mistreatment of employees that is swept under the carpet is not an acceptable company culture.

    Pros

    location,some nice coworkers and easy commute

    Cons

    low salary,bad management mostly old boy club,if you don't belong to this circle you are out of luck.
    I worked for Integration Department as IT professional,I didn't like it and I was treated differently just because I'm not white.
    I was asked by management a lot of questions about my religion and about my home country in bad way which something you will get sued for one day .
    I couldn't take it no more so I lift and got much better job with more profisional company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Learn about HC. That's about it.

    Cons

    Pay is bad. They bait and swtich from the interview to you start your job. Hired for marketing communications role - job was sales making 30 telemarketing cold calls/day - yuck! Fiefdoms in different sub-organizations. They really decive employees, vendors and members. Lifer employees think they can never get fired - AND THEY DON'T NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of Washington and manage Chicago office. DC is so removed that sub groups run out of control.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. That's why most employees don't leave. But that's part of the problem.

    Cons

    Employee sense of entitlement is ridiculous. Managers are awful, leading to miscommunication, inconsistent practices, favortism, etc.
