Advice to Senior Management – Too many managers in senior positions are entrenched "lifers" who are basically clock-punching before heading to Florida. Organization desperately needs to start walking the diversity talk it so regularly heralds in its publications. The flagship magazine has been elderly white female for well over a decade if not more; and the organization only hired its first minority editor a few years ago. Opportunities for advancement should be created to encourage younger staffers to remain with the organization vs. leaving to find work elsewhere after 2-3 years.; and the progressive political mindset needs to be re-examined since, unless you are an elderly woman with a Democratic leaning, there is not much of a place for you at this association.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
