    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The group is now energized with a new CEO and new management that's displaying a new forward looking vision. The workplace is gorgeous and an even nicer office is being prepared for us. People are very helpful and good at their jobs. The association enjoys respect in the community. After a number of changes, things are much better!

    Cons

    Some people are still a little jumpy from the recent re-org, which in all actuality needed to happen. This is a place best suited for people who like to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking at best practices in professional associations and social media entities like LinkedIn and keep AMA out front.

    Pros

    Competitive benefits. Company is shifting to more creative, progressive, collaborative environment, which is exciting.

    Cons

    Communication between departments, spirit of collaboration could be better. Overall employee moral could be higher. Office has a nice view, but feels dated.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employee investment and enthusiasm while at work, possibly more company-wide events.

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

    Pros

    Over the last 9 months the AMA has undergone significant changes in its cultural values, customer focus, and product delivery. These changes have been rapid and vast, but have truly set the company up for a bright future. While things may still be in process, I am confident that the business will be stronger in the end.

    Cons

    The company is moving towards an agile, entrepreneurial alignment, as such, it has transition from the standard association/non-profit feel. Employees are being asked to do more and that can sometimes impact work/life balance. But, if you are willing to put in the hours and hard work, you will benefit greatly.

    Advice to Management

    With the new cultural shift in place at the AMA, and a new focus being placed on quality speakers and content contributors, don't forget to fold entrepreneurial companies in to the offerings. Hearing from small, but powerful brands in the tech and digital space are very attractive to Millennials
