    I have been working at American Society of Anesthesiologists full-time


    This is a medical specialty with a wonderful and impressive history. The vast majority of the members are great to work with. They are very smart and engaged and want to help advance the interests of the specialty. The ASA, itself, is one of the best managed medical specialty organizations in medicine. Excellent and dedicated physician leadership. Strong CEO. New C-suite team has brought energy and innovation to the organization. While not consistent across all departments, most employees are loyal and help create a healthy and happy collaborative environment. Building is truly excellent. Very good compensation and benefits. One of the best 401Ks I have seen in a long time. Telework is part of the culture. People with a good work ethics (a real work ethic as judged by your boss, not you), who don't like drama, who are adaptable and learn quickly and who can really work collaboratively, can shine here.


    The health care landscape is ever changing and evolving and this is impacting the practices of anesthesiologists. To keep up and serve its members, ASA has to be constantly changing and evolving. This can be tough at times. Priorities can change quickly. Your hard work on "the next big thing" could be tabled if circumstances change. And projects can be added to your assignments without lots of notice. That can be frustrating. The physician members have high expectations and expect a lot out of ASA and its employees. They can be demanding. You will work hard here. This is not a place for slackers or clock watchers. Work/life balance is manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Help guide physician leaders in prioritizing projects and saying "no" to marginal ideas.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Society of Anesthesiologists in July 2014.


    HR recruiter very friendly except she asked about things in my background that was personal and not related to job I thought that was awkward. No drug test either. Manager and Director werepleasant too bad both left the company. Background check takes about 3 weeks in total.
