    I worked at American College of Physicians full-time

    Pros

    Overall a great organization to work for - great benefits, 35 hour work week, nice facilities, on-site cafeteria

    Cons

    Horrible middle management. Extreme favoritism for unqualified, unproductive employees who take advantage of the company by surfing the net all day, or ridiculous amount of breaks outside the building and abusing other employees. This behavior is allowed and even rewarded with higher pay and opportunities for favorites while others who are qualified, hard-working and professional are looked over or completely ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management - talk to employees who are actually doing the work instead of getting a "story" from the middle manager about why things are going wrong in the department.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I worked in the Executive Office for six years. I had a terrific manager precisely because she had no interest in playing politics to advance her own career. Her concern was making sure that the job was done well. She is also one of the longest-serving employees and has extensive institutional knowledge but has never advanced beyond Manager.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there has been a "power grab" by the Executive Office in recent years. More effort has been made to create VP positions that report to the COO than to optimize processes that benefit the majority of staff. Staff are promoted not based on merit but on their obsequiousness.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, management will not listen to staff advice - they are constantly taking meeting surveys of physician participants but turn a deaf ear to any suggestions by staff. BTW, at the bottom of this form it says "Rate CEO David Bronson". Dr. David Bronson was a past President but is not the CEO - Dr. Darilyn Moyer is the EVP/CEO as of 2016.

    Pros

    A progressive organization that serves the educational, information and social needs for it's members. Staff by and large are dedicated to the the success of the organizations mission.

    Cons

    As with any organizations some staff play office politics, but there is much less of that in the last five years under the current management.

    Pros

    It is a wonderful place to work. Beautiful building, great benefits, good people

    Cons

    I do not think listing negative thought or ideas helps anything. If you have an issue you should work towards resolving it not airing it in public

    Advice to Management

    I ask that you refer to the answer I listed above

    I have been working at American College of Physicians full-time

    Pros

    Amazing and affordable health benefits, as well as programs for employees - fitness classes, nutritionist, cafe, and gym on site. Beautiful, well-kept building.
    Company paid pension.
    The organization respects and honors the opinions and wishes of its members, and advocates on behalf of internists.
    CEO seems competent--not the one listed above, incorrect.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, especially when it comes to the email program that is used.
    Lack of communication, throughout - within and between departments.
    The majority of the staff has been there 10+ and become lax. They seem to all get away with doing the bare minimum and are miserable, yet won't leave because the benefits are so good.
    No camaraderie or feelings of teamwork. It's everyone for themselves, which unfortunately affects training and does not honor processes put in place.
    Inflexible when it comes to taking time off and telecommuting. Hard for a working parent or someone with a chronic illness to take any time to attend to anything during work hours. Telecommuting allowances in place, but not fair because only certain departments allow it.
    Too much business travel, which includes long work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication skills, as well as building teamwork and camaraderie. Work on motivation.
