    I worked at American Bankers Association

    Pros

    Great work life balance and generous benefits provided to staff. Feels like one is working for the government (not sure that belongs under pros)

    Cons

    Low salary pay. Average workforce age is ~ 60 years old. Very old school management type that promotes based on the number of years one has been on the job and not performance. Poor organizational culture which is very senior heavy.

    Cons

    Change averse
    Low potential for upward movement
    Direct reports tend to micromanage
    Business does not embrace change
    Low Level Employees have little to no input

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace change - It will fuel the future
    Let employees drive innovation - Employee autonomy (or perceived autonomy) is a driver for motivation and innovation.
    Become nimble - Learn to flow with change, not set down anchor and hope it works out
    Get feedback from the employees - Management may paint a rosy picture of their department when its really sinking

    There is a great disconnect from upper management to what is actually occurring. This comes with the culture at ABA, with each department working independently and defensively. Breaking the barriers and walls between departments will further drive innovation and enhance member value. ABA has great opportunity for growth, but the change aversion and slow response to demands is causing customers to flee.
