    "Good compensation & benefits, work-life balance may be a problem"

    I worked at American Medical Association full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, decent salaries, interesting and bright coworkers.

    Cons

    Work-life balance varies enormously across the organization. In some areas, it's apparently fine. In others, it's problematic. One can work long hours, be unable to actually use much earned vacation time, and still be told one is not doing enough.

    I worked at American Medical Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits overall given that it is a non-profit organization

    Cons

    Highest political environment after White House. You can imagine the inefficiencies and waste of non profit funding tied to that.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the COO. CFO is the one running the show. How could a former insurance fall out executive run a medical association efficiently? Everyone else that reports to COO are pure puppets as that's the only way they stay hired.


  7. "DBA"
