    I have been working at American Nurses Association full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good location in the heart of downtown Silver Spring. The building is nice. There is a lot of natural light.

    Cons

    Bad management, low pay. Employees organized a union there for good reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there are bad managers, either train them or remove them. Don't support a toxic environment.

    I have been working at American Nurses Association full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nursing is a great profession. Staff are friendly to each other.

    Cons

    Employee morale is low with a lack of authority given to staff to execute their job. Salaries are below average. Employees remain stagnant in their positions because of lack of upward mobility internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fair compensation for employees and the ability to reward those who work hard with promotions or bonuses.

    I worked at American Nurses Association full-time

    Pros

    Nursing is a great profession. Marla is great, but some of her leaders are an epic failure.

    Cons

    The hiring process is irresponsible and poorly managed. Employee morale is very low. I am appalled at the way in which I was treated by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what's actually happening, and don't allow others to intimate and bully other employees. You need to consider things beyond what is in front you. You make a lot of false assumptions. Provide your employees with the critical information they need to their job. Clarify goals and set expectations. Tell them about major structural changes BEFORE they take effect. Don't plan things or set expectations in your own head. Don't change their job description on the fly.
