    Continual on-the-job training

    I worked at American Diabetes Association full-time

    Pros

    The employees are very loyal to the cause and mission.
    The ADA attempts to use modern technology as a tool to meet organizational objectives

    Cons

    Very strong top-down chain of command throughout the whole organization.
    The local level has not autonomy to determine projects not given the tools to achieve the handed-down objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ADA (and more importantly people with diabetes) can be better served if the local organization (office / chapter) had more autonomy over the program and activities withing their territory,

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
