    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits. Travel opportunities are flexible. They have a lot of respect in the industry.

    Cons

    They should have been a little more direct when approaching employees about comprehension of management requests. Have thick skin.

    Spoil the employees. They deserve it!

    I have been working at American College of Cardiology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazingly smart and driven people. Excellent benefits. Summer Fridays for 1/2 of the year.

    Cons

    Very stingy with salaries. No room for growth. Make sure what you are making is what you will be comfortable with forever. This is the main reason most people leave after 1-2 years

    Advice to Management

    Provide more growth opportunities and recognition for achieving higher experience levels within the organization.

    I have been working at American College of Cardiology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with ACC for almost 5 years now and I have not regretted a single minute of it. Yes there have been changes and yes not all divisions are created equal but our EVPs really care about making the place a great work environment. The benefits are phenomenal- from a gym, to great medical care to super fun work outings, the ACC truly celebrates work life balance. The pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    My only con is if we had more telework opportunities company wide and the location could be a bit better for food options and commuting in but ACC is a fantastic place to work!!

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices just a teeny bit more but otherwise doing a great job!

    I worked at American College of Cardiology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ACC is a very professional oranization from the members to the staff. There is a very good work-life balance and most managers are very understanding and flexible. There's also a very strong sense of community among the staff and also among staff and the membership.

    Cons

    There's little growth opportunity in some departments because of the size of the organization. Also, some managers are not good at managing staff - they may be excellent SMEs but the organization could invest in more manager training.

    Advice to Management

    More manager training and ongoing manager training would be a good thing to consider.

    The Senior leadership was doing an excellent job in building the community of the organization, I hope this continues because it was a really good place to work.

    I worked at American College of Cardiology full-time

    Pros

    Hard working co-workers with strong knowledge within their specialties, supportive leadership with open door policy, and amazing members with amazing ideas about how to change the landscape for cardiology.

    Cons

    There are many amazing ideas from members and staff that could change the way cardiology is done; however, there aren’t enough staff/people to do the required work. In addition, there are plenty of opportunities for professional development; however, no real opportunities to move up the ladder within the company.

    Advice to Management

    The management should focus on ways to ensure staff not only grows professionally but that they also have the means to put what they’ve learned into action. There are so many staff members with the expertise to make a huge change; however, that knowledge becomes stagnant when not used.

    Pros

    The physician and nurse leaders are exceptional. The staff are professional in every way. ACC provides many opportunities for professional growth.

    The organization is very business oriented . It's eight hospital and two outpatient registries are a primary focus, along with its professional journal.

    Advice to Management

    Consider making a greater investment in advocacy at the federal, state and payer level.

    I have been working at American College of Cardiology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice building, and rewarding work. Decent salaries and work-life balance. Members are very knowledgeable and appreciative. Location in DC makes for an easy commute using public transportation.

    Cons

    Re-organization that eliminated all titles with the exception of upper management. No clear path for growth and promotion. Lack of standard expectations across all divisions with upper management connection weak at best.

    Advice to Management

    You have a fantastic group of staff and should be very interested in making an environment where high performers get rewarded and know the how to grow in responsibility, salary, and recognition.
