I have been working at AMA full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

It feels good to help physicians
Working for a nonprofit is fulfilling
They treat employees pretty well, managing salary raises and bonuses most years

Cons

Very compartmentalized, not much cross-department collaboration
Top-down management, not an innovation-friendly place
Change is the enemy
Any change happens slower than molasses if it isn't shut down right away
Mediocre and bad managers stay in place
Managers aren't trained in how to handle people; they're promoted because of seniority or because they're good at their original job.
Working at home is either banned or happens on the down-low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

360-degree reviews are long overdue
Let employees work from home -- it will save money and will be seen as a great benefit and promote work-life balance. This is standard across all industries.

    I worked at AMA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Larger company with room for growth in certain departments. Departments are given much reign to develop and run on their own.

    Cons

    Non profit organization. Company has undergone reduction in workforce several times over the last 10 years. Needs to be more innovative and forward thinking.
