    Flexible work schedule, colleagues were nice and friendly.

    Management was all about protocol only - not about the level of work you could produce. Women in management positions were scarce.

    I worked at Acord full-time

    Pros

    Working with the members is the best part of the job. The members believe in the mission of ACORD and are very engaged in the standards process.

    Cons

    The company has just hired a new CEO, and the future direction of the company is a bit uncertain.

    Advice to Management

    The best advice to management i can give is to listen to the members to find out what it is that they want from ACORD.

    I have been working at Acord full-time

    Pros

    A place with good work life balance. Due to small size, good employees have ability to wear lots of hats. Casual environment with friendly staff.

    Cons

    Very political environment. Problems and suggestions are frequently ignored. Lots of turf wars between managers and finger-pointing when things go wrong. Complete lack of vision.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need clearer responsibilities and to be held accountable for dysfunction. Projects need to define clear success factors and goals.
