    Pros

    Access to brightest minds in oncology. Fantastic staff and authentic commitment to deliver only the best.

    Cons

    Flexible work environment is a nice perk, but makes for a very quiet office environment if you're at all extroverted.

    I worked at American Society of Clinical Oncology full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This association has an admirable mission; being a part of this organization is, in its own way, contributing to the fight against cancer.
    The professional experience you acquire from this organization & any involvement you have in its Annual Meeting look great on a resume.
    The organization has an outstanding reputation in the healthcare arena, non-profit and otherwise.
    Beautiful office with free garage parking. Free coffee.
    Office is in a convenient & cool location, right in the outskirts of Old Town.

    Cons

    Insecure & power-hungry middle management. Office bullying.

    Male to female ratio in the place is probably 1:25. Take that for what it is.

    Truly laughable salaries for the amount of work that's expected from you.

    Biggest con: ROWE. Enter, the expectation to be connected at all hours. Expect phone calls & work requests after 6 pm for assignments & meetings that are due the next morning. Expect phone calls & frantic e-mails on days you've called out sick because nobody was in the office to tell each other that you are offline.

    In addition, there is zero office culture what-so-ever; ROWE isolates people from one another. Quarterly all-staff meetings in the office are awkward at best because people often don't know their colleagues' faces.

    Saving the best for last: Be sure to take time off while you're still employed here (even if that means coming back from vacation to a complete mess), because guess what? When you finally quit, you will learn there is no PTO cash-out with ROWE. Even if you have a ton of vacation days saved up, when you leave you won't get a penny's worth of those hours. This isn't listed on the HR website or in the staff handbook, and nobody will give you a straight answer regarding this policy until your exit interview.

    Suddenly, ROWE makes sense, then - with the amount of turnover this place has, this policy saves the organization a ton of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of ROWE. (Of course, this will never happen because ROWE saves the organization money and gets them more bang for their buck than the average 9-5 environment.)
