    Pros

    From its 30,000+ oncologist members, it is a well-respected organization for its advocacy, education, and program work, along with its Annual Meeting. The ROWE work environment should allow for maximum flexibility for employees.

    Cons

    The leadership of the organization, starting at the President, routinely violate their own professional ethics and work standards for their employees. Management lacks integrity in its dealings with employees, and does not possess the ability to engage in true strategic planning (and stick to those plans). They are more likely to invest in a consultant for a quick-fix than invest in the talent they have on-board.

    I personally witnessed a senior member of leadership run out three outstanding, hard-working employees because they didn't "fit into the culture", which means to say they didn't appreciate being screamed at, overworked, unfairly evaluated, belittled in front of other employees, etc. Unfortunately, the organization experiences quite a bit of turn over because management does not recognize and reward talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your own rules and the ROWE environment you agreed to. Learn to respect and reward employee contributions to the shared goals. Screaming at employees is not a professional, acceptable behavior.

    Pros

    There is some interesting science coming out of the events and publications; there is some willingness to try out new things in the tech arena; working remote is pretty common and accepted.

    Cons

    though it claims to be a flat organization, it is very hierarchical and a lot of decisions are taken based on pleasing certain management staff and not following sound business principles; a lot of workflows have too much redundancy, which causes a lot of unnecessary work (and meetings and email). Some departments are run like a corporation without the benefits of working in the for profit world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees more and listen to their suggestions.
