Disrespectful group of yahoos in senior positions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsDowntown location, decent benefits and some friendly co-workers

ConsThe glowing reviews written internally by ASCP are a joke. The reviews written that give the high marks and berate the other reviewers is a more accurate picture of the organization -- blame any and everyone else. It is not just "coordinators" or young kids making negative reviews. It's people who have given years, sometimes decades, of their lives, only to be tossed aside if they use their own brain and express opinions or ideas that may not be the same as the senior manager/executive manager "clique."

And if there are young people commenting, I would think their insights would be valuable since the group tries to attract young people to its membership. But the membership numbers are an indicator of what's happening too. Facts are facts. Furthermore, if one is to blame "young kids" for these posts, what does that say about the yahoos that hired them? Point the finger, there's three pointing back.

Forget ethics and morals, your hard work will not be recognized or compensated. Recognition programs favor a select few even when a project clearly utilized the time of MANY. Upper management and human resources are a joke -- there's no way to create solutions when those responsible for creating solutions are corrupt. Compensation or merit increases are all but nonexistent, yet expensive retreats and glamorous meetings and parties are held that yield few changes.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou can spend your time berating posters or you can get serious about the issues being raised here.
Compensate/promote hard workers
Get rid of the dead weight
Lose the annual meeting

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
