    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, summer hours

    Cons

    Staff is poorly trained, cliquish work atmosphere, no room for advancement, management is absent, staff is overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees. Don't treat them like dirt. Management needs more interaction with staff.

    Everyone can be pretty complacent, but it was not a horrible place to work.

    I worked at American Marketing Association as an intern

    There seemed to be job security among the people who did their work.

    I worked at American Marketing Association full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    gorgeous offices, summer hours, good work/life balance

    Cons

    disconnected and absent CEO; territorial senior leadership, surprisingly old school for a marketing association. committees don't house the most progressive in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the annual kickoff should not be the only time to connect with employees.

    All things marketing lead to AMA!

    I worked at American Marketing Association full-time

    Pros

    Great environment, beautiful office, strong work-life balance which is rare to find in marketing. The learning possibilities are endless. THE place for marketing. Most employees have been there many years which is always a good sign. Great benefits and Top Tier Management (CMO, HR Director, etc). Extra perks like lunch-and-learns, summer friday's, and a holiday party try to encourage more interaction between departments which is always refreshing to see.

    Cons

    Could use a little more cross-collaboration between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My confession, I'm sorry I left. AMA is a great place and hopefully it will grow with more opportunities in the near future.

    It was a great college experience

    I worked at American Marketing Association as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learning new things and working with great people. It was a great experience all around, and I learned a lot. It looks great on my resume, and I love telling people about the projects we were involved in.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was a little unorganized. Our leader was absent most of the time, and that made things very difficult.

    AMA -- Great on Paper, Horrible in Person

    I worked at American Marketing Association

    Pros

    The AMA had great brand recognition and a great reputation in the outside world and I was able to work with some really great co-workers.

    Cons

    Senior management at the AMA is pretty poor from the employee perpsective. Qualified, competent people who are passionate about marketing fled the organization in response to one C level executive's relentless public humiliation and private beratement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employee satisfaction survey you recently conducted reflects four years of sentiment from your employees. You've received a great deal of the same feedback from employees' exit interviews, yet seem to ignore it and continue operating in the same fashion. We all fear that you will be left with a skeleton crew supporting the senior management. And not enough members to support their salaries.
