    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time

    Pros

    *Core staff mostly friendly and helpful
    *Nice office location & close to transportation
    *Good benefits
    *Good use of technology to allow for remote working

    Cons

    *Constant change make both new & old employees worried/concerned. Staff are stressed
    *Still in transition from multiple re-organizations & no proof theres a light at end of tunnel
    *Best talent that lived the values are leaving
    *Managers don't always seem to support their reports or have best interest

    Advice to Management

    Be open to receiving and acting on honest feedback from employees that care about the organization, even if it's about their managers. Don't let a select few run out your best employees or hinder you from getting the best new talent.

    "Lots of creativity and passion"

    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time

    Pros

    It's hard not to enjoy working for an organization that is member-focused. Especially when the members are so creative and passionate. The current CEO sets high expectations, but he is a breathe of fresh air after years of low-key leadership. The organization is also trying a lot of new strategies which translates to opportunities to expand individual skill-sets.

    From a benefits stand-point, AMA offers volunteer time off, flex days, 12 holidays, floating holidays, pretty aggressive vacation accrual, etc.

    Cons

    Recent leadership and structural changes have made some employees uncomfortable. Not surprisingly, those same people seem to be having trouble living the new values and fitting into the new culture.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient with staff adjusting to change. Given all the change it's not surprising some people feel defensive.

    I worked at American Marketing Association part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of good networking opportunities and interacting with students. Also, opportunity to participate in competitions across the nation.

    Cons

    Lots of weekly meetings and sometimes can be demanding but the opportunities they provide you with override that.

    Advice to Management

    Not a whole lot, just keep doing what they are doing. They are winning competitions so keep it up.

    Excellent resources and networking for young professionals. Allows students to get hands-on work experience that is applicable to the real work environment.

    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The group is now energized with a new CEO and new management that's displaying a new forward looking vision. The workplace is gorgeous and an even nicer office is being prepared for us. People are very helpful and good at their jobs. The association enjoys respect in the community. After a number of changes, things are much better!

    Cons

    Some people are still a little jumpy from the recent re-org, which in all actuality needed to happen. This is a place best suited for people who like to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking at best practices in professional associations and social media entities like LinkedIn and keep AMA out front.

    Pros

    Competitive benefits. Company is shifting to more creative, progressive, collaborative environment, which is exciting.

    Cons

    Communication between departments, spirit of collaboration could be better. Overall employee moral could be higher. Office has a nice view, but feels dated.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employee investment and enthusiasm while at work, possibly more company-wide events.
