I have been working at American Academy of Otolaryngology full-time
The AAO-HNSF is very forward thinking and is constantly monitoring trends to stay ahead of the curve for its members. As such, it is producing a steady stream of innovations from its Annual Meeting to CME and beyond to quality and quality improvement. Executive management is very supportive and actively takes steps to remove impediments and roadblocks to new initiatives. The Executive Leadership team is very collaborative so there are no silos to deal with when working across divisions. The culture is very supportive. Executives also actively mentor, guide, protect and support their staff teams.
The only con is there are too many new and exciting initiatives to choose from. Sometimes there are not enough resources to do them all.
Advice to Management
My advice to management is to keep clearing the path for your innovators and supporting/rewarding those staff who are contributing the most to the future success of the organization. If they keep their eyes on results, which they have been to date, this organization will continue on its positive trajectory.
