My experience was poor, at best.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Association of Corporate Counsel

ProsIf you want to work at a place that is central and close to public transport then that is the only reason to work at the ACC.

Their offices are modern.

ConsThe senior management at this organization operates under a poorly structured model. It is a culture of fear, favoritism and antiquated views of the workplace. They don't even allow current employees to use LinkedIn for reviews under fear of termination (an email was actually sent to employees stating this). Their turnover rate is exceptionally high and there have been suits against this organization from employees.

I hope the new CEO can help to turn this organization towards more modern human resources and organizational practices.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

You deserve better!

Program Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Association of Corporate Counsel full-time for more than 3 years

ProsClose to metro that's all you get!

ConsHighly politicized entity for a small office of 60+ employees . Hard work will get you nothing but a two percent raise and not a single promotion or bonus. The Human Resource department cultivate an atmosphere of retaliation to such an extent that employees are scared to voice their opinion. I totally agree with the first reviewer as they are a handful of employees lawsuits over wrongful termination, discrimination and likes against this organization. Turnover is so high, more than a dozen employees left last year alone! Check the facts and make sure you know what you get yourself into.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop this culture of favoritism and recognize employees who have been working hard to get this company where it is.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
