  1. A organization that provides work/life balance

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Asce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance and great staff.

    Cons

    Low salaries compared to other non profits. Raises are within a small percentage range where hard work doesn't provide any additional monetary reward. Slack off and you get just as much as your hardworking colleague.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Reston, VA

    I have been working at Asce

    Pros

    Decent benefits, great members and good location

    Cons

    Although work/life balance is always talked about as being good, this totally depends on your manager. This is definitely many inconsistencies as who can do what....telecommuting is ok for some (upper mgmt) and not for others. The style of mgmt. needs to change as there are too many micromanagers and control freaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate what is really going on between employees and employers....too much negativity and not enough positivity. Actually listen to what employees are saying not what you think they are saying.

    Current Employee - Coordinator in Reston, VA

    I have been working at Asce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - flexible schedule
    - nice coworkers
    - good benefits and members
    - easy commute from the fairfax area
    - good work/ life balance
    - reasonable job expectations

    Cons

    - lower than average pay
    - marginal pay increases and inconsistent bonuses
    - political leadership
    - low opportunities for professional growth
    - favoritism
    - it is more of a job than a career, which isn't necessarily a con, but could quickly become one if you are looking for a career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for the CEO to make an appearance at all-hands meetings.

  5. ASCE-great employer

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Asce full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy; nice non-profit attitude; great co-workers; really nice facilities; totally great members and volunteers to work with in your daily activities

    Cons

    If you're looking for somewhere to work that's an easy commute from DC or from Maryland, this probably isn't a good place to be as the traffic is tough

    I have been working at Asce full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    90% tuition reimbursement, health/dental/vision package is awesome, HR department is very involved with activities for employees to participate in (not so much actually helping employees with HR related problems. They are there to listen, not resolve your issues).

    Cons

    Management and the pay is lower 25% of the area's average pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting elitist.

    I worked at Asce full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Convenient location and very nice facility
    - HR staff is EXCEPTIONALLY compassionate and benevolent towards employees, and while I have no definitive proof of this, I've some anecdotal that is too long to be cited here.
    - Descent compensation: not the best, but one must keep in mind that this IS a non-profit organization

    Cons

    - Some arrogance among the higher-ups (somewhat understandable...these are very accomplished people)
    - Not much growth potential for the average Joe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember: "Thou art mortal..."
