    I worked at Air Transport Association (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great HR - they really care about employees. Most of the staff was a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the SVPs thought they were too good to associate with lower-level employees.

    There wasn't a whole lot of room for growth. My particular role changed from coordinating events to arranging travel and being a SVPs personal assistant. That wasn't what the initial job description called for.

    Advice to Management

    Try to relate and help your lower/level staff grow!

    I worked at Air Transport Association full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a good working environment and work culture- a balance of being comfortable with colleagues without requiring to spend personal time with the team. Overtime is not expected but it is important to be focused during work hours. I appreciated the consistency in work and good working morale.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, this is also an insulated environment that can be high pressure at times. There are not many opportunities for professional development or career advancement, so if you do not enter in the ideal position you may get stuck.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend offering more career development opportunities for the staff and sharing information across the organization more frequently.

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere, people are acutally nice and industry's work is accepted. Good office environment and location.

    Cons

    Salaries tied to unprofitable airlines. DC is expensive. The nature of a political organization makes it political...

    Pros

    Networking opportunities abound, and the association has good credibility to open doors t senior levels of government and private sector.

    Cons

    New management has resulted in a lot of re-structuring, making empliyment a somewhat risky proposition in the next year or so.

    Advice to Management

    New management does not always demonstrate good decision-making or focus on member interests. Relationships with government officials are not what they were a year ago.
