    "Great place for those not focused on ego, their helicopter parents, or instant promotions to CEO."

    Pros

    Innovative, great staff development training, competitive benefits, awesome parties, mini celebrations, exciting/tough international work. This is a growing global company that doesn't tolerate bad attitude.

    Cons

    Some mid-level managers have something to prove and are a little ego-centric.

    Advice to Management

    Sounds like many of the negative reviewers didn't last long. There's a reason for that fact. They got a reality check here and then they get another reality check somewhere else. I've heard story after story of former employees wanting to come back, and some do get hired back. Most of the negatives are from "coordinators" i.e. younger employees that miss their mommies and daddies and don't like to have their hands slapped. Work hard, try hard, fail hard and you will be respected and rewarded.

    I have been working at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for ASCP as an outside consultant for over 8 years, and honored to be offered a full-time position this past July. There has always been a strong sense of respect for each other, creating a culture that promotes work-life balance.

    Cons

    As a not-for-profit, it is sometimes challenging to compete with corporations and salary expectations, however, ASCP provides a great benefit package and healthy culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on work-life balance for your employees and support of their professional growth, because when people know you care, they give you their all. This is why people leave ASCP and want to come back!

    Pros

    I was promoted after being here for one year. I'm an honest and hardworking person, if you are too, this is the organization for you. Hard work and dedication is recognized and you will definitely get what you give to ASCP - no question about that. Flex time all year is great for work/life balance and upper management cares about my career and helping me succeed.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes almost 10 minutes to get up the two different elevators needed to take to our floor. Yea, that would be my biggest complaint...so, again, a great place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to set your employees up for success and promote from within when possible.

    I worked at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time

    Pros

    I have worked with ASCP for approximately 8 years and have been challenged to grow professionally and personally every step of the way. Has it all be perfect - heck no! What company is perfect? There have been times when I shock my head and asked why I stay but, at the end of the day, am VERY glad I stayed around. My superiors are not perfect but they really believe in the mission and their staff. Their intentions are well founded.

    If you want to be challenged to improve your knowledge, work ethic, and leadership qualities - this is the job for you. If you want to just come in, do your basic job, stay "comfortable", and just go home at the end of the day - you may want to look elsewhere.

    Cons

    Even though they stress balance with life and work, because of the rapid movement of the company and the push to improve patient care and outreach, the balance does tend to get lost at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push balance between life and work - even the most dedicated staff get tired and begin to resent those "missed opportunities" with their kids/family/personal life.

    Ensure that ALL Managers enforce "flex hours" fairly. If an employee can truly do their work at home and their are situations making it difficult for them to be in the office 5 days a week - left them work from home.

    Keep up the great job!!!

    Project slow-downs between xmas & new years were encouraged
    Good human beings to work with...

    Pros

    ASCP has great leadership, is taking on new initiatives and growing in a difficult economic environment. Great potential to get involved with interesting projects, have the opportunity to be involved and and is an open culture.

    Cons

    you need to have a personality that can thrive in this environment. staff that don't make it at ascp are complacent, not actively engaged and wait around for things to happen. This isn't a place that tolerates whining very well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the innovative thinking, and keep looking for employees who can thrive in the environment

    I have been working at American Society for Clinical Pathology (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Our department/unit is highly collaborative and our director is open and responsive to input. Work/life balance stronger than most organizations; co-workers are generally very supportive of each other... I think the work is interesting and I buy in to the organization's overall mission.

    Cons

    Under-developed central structure; feel that there aren't enough company-wide processes and there is a bit of a 'silo' effect. Morale seems uneven/ middling, but not sure why as I've been here less than a year.

    Advice to Management

    Work flow processes need to be updated for greater efficiency; greater investment in hardware, IT personnel
