I worked at American Academy of Physician Assistants full-time

Pros

The people are smart, friendly and passionate about PAs.

Cons

AAPA is in a turnaround situation that puts a lot of pressure on the revenue streams. They motivate staff with fear, stretch goals and a very poor performance review/promotion process.

Advice to Management

Create a standardized orientation and supervisory training program so all departments operate under the same expectations. Also, make the tough decisions about where staff time should be allocated instead of trying to make all things possible. Lastly, do something about the high turnover rate!

    I worked at American Academy of Physician Assistants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good location, good benefits package. Great time to be working on behalf of this profession with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act

    Cons

    A chronic culture of jumping from one thing to the next, no attention to the hard-working staff, than with the health of the association. 12 position eliminations in 6 months, no direction, poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Core competencies--membership, conference, and professional development, and don't let personalities rule your structural decision-making

    I worked at American Academy of Physician Assistants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are great, hard working people, active, engaged members, good benefits and a solid work-life balance. A lot of great people have made their career at AAPA, giving it a family feel.

    Cons

    Growing pains following some EVP churn seem to be going on for longer than necessary. Job stability seems to be a thing of the past.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people. They are doing great work, but a formerly stable place to work now seems tumultuous.
