Pros

great group of people. family type atmosphere with colleagues who genuinely seem to care about one another. great benefits.

Cons

no money to do anything! most positions lead nowhere - stagnant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

if you want to get different results, you have to do something different. you can do the same things and expect something new to happen. yours are not the only or the best ideas. consult with your staff.

    I have been working at ASTA

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel - both domestic and international
    Flexible schedule
    Ability to develop new projects
    Office location is close to shopping, restaurants

    Cons

    Poor budget management by senior leadership
    Management's inability to eliminate or restructure projects that are not revenue-generating
    Lack of morale among staff
    Poor internal communication and sense of collaboration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-examine the organizational structure to improve workflow and streamline processes. Research alternatives to staff or pay reductions. In moving forward with these measures, it has greatly damaged morale and lead to an exodus of talent.
