    "Stay far away from this organization. Horrible leadership team and favoritism in hiring practices."

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at American Hospital Association

    Pros

    The office location, benefits and coffee.

    Cons

    The leadership team or as they like to call themselves “EMG” are anything but leaders. They are the biggest joke and have ruined a great organization. As a previous review said, they need to go retire and bring in young leaders. The COO is on her way out which is huge, she’s brought the employee morale to the lowest level . During her time here, she’s brought this whole place down. This same leadership team places individuals in roles that are their friends, doesn’t matter that they may not know what they are doing, but if you’re in with an EMG member it’s all good. The same doesn’t apply for all the other people who work here. Especially if you’re a minority you don’t stand a chance Unfair promotion practices—- why do certain people get promoted. Interesting how so many minority employees don’t get opportunities but white employees do. Then HR doesn’t post some jobs and people magically appear in them. Our values, I CARE are a joke. You can listen to Rick Pollack harp about them but this organization doesn’t live any of them. It’s all a bunch of lies to make people think we actually have a good organization. People back stab everyone all the time. It’s all about who can scream the most and get the most.

    I worked at American Hospital Association full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -The location of the Downtown DC office is centrally located -Colleagues can help you make it through the days

    Cons

    -Virtually no opportunities for advancement -Massive pay inequities -Promotions are rare and raises are basically nonexistent -No real bonuses, except for VPs and above who get massive bonuses -A culture that totally devalues any employees who are lower than Senior Director -Culture where lower-level employees are told they can’t talk to people in higher positions -Forming friendships with colleagues feels frowned upon -Leadership team are a group of older, out-of-touch employees who have been with the company for 20+ years and fuel a toxic environment -Super outdated workplace! Working from home is discouraged or blatantly not allowed, vacation policy is old-fashioned with no ability to roll over any days. Employees are often judged for using any vacation days, while managers take off a fair amount -Work hours aren’t very inflexible. You’re expected to be there from 8:30 am - 5:30 pm. Managers, however, have much more flexible hours and gotten leave before 4 pm -Lower-level employees shoulder all the blame for any mishaps -Conversely, managers take credit for the ideas and work of their employees and then accept bonuses for that good work without giving anything to their employees -HR actively ignores employee complaints or genuine workplace problems -Managers do not help their employees grow or advance. There’s such a competitive spirit within the organization, and many managers see their employees as competition and won’t help them advance -No professional development opportunities -So many employees talk with each other about going home crying at the end of every work day because you are so beaten down and unvalued
