    I worked at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very few remain related to the workplace culture or leadership
    Good location
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Seriously, take heed of the negative reviews on this site. In the 5 years I worked at the organization, it has been on a steady decline. There is no fiscal management-- multi-million dollar renovations were scheduled for the coming year, not 4 months after 30 staff were laid off.

    Archaic and cheap technology and thinking. Very little value for expertise- they are always looking to blame staff for incredibly miscommunicated initiatives. There is Increasingly complex planning with no planning/infrastructure to manage or support over worked staff.

    Politics are rampant and the place has reorganized at least 4 times in 5 years. Each re-organization actually makes things worse. Conflict- shy people in leadership positions. No accountability, and no concern for staff welfare.

    There are no growth opportunities for staff.. unless you are an assistant or coordinator. Or on the senior leadership team and can promote yourself by giving loft titles. This is why staff get experience and leave.

    If you care about your career or work-life balance, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    None. it is obvious they don't care about staff or membership.

    I worked at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New staff are looking to learn and contribute to their careers. Lots of free food due to committee meetings and review groups held in office.

    Cons

    Politics are forefront. Smart business decisions are not valued. Antiquated systems and approaches.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the dead weight holding the organization back from moving forward. There is a lot of financial waist that occurs across the board -- embarrassing.

    Pros

    Great parties, they throw cash and drinks around like its going out of style, and great location downtown.

    Cons

    Very nice people work there.

    Management, however, is on the consultant bandwagon. Millions of dollars, but their collective decisions are awful!

    Keep your head down, tow the party- line.The best way to be rewarded is to say "yes". Senior staff run around all the time, but don't really DO anything... except party and go out for drinks. Great job if you can get it...

    Advice to Management

    Retire, or whatever. Hope this company is around in 10 years...

    I worked at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were no pros. The cons so outweighed the pros that it canceled out the pros and it wasn't worth working for ASCP.

    Cons

    Most people quit. The place was a total revolving door. Those that were fired, were fired unfairly, unjustly, and viciously, which is exactly what happened to me. Every time a negative post appeared on this site, instead of learning from it, management would conduct a malicious witch hunt that made the staff miserable. There was very little talent and accountability at the upper levels, mostly a group of egotistical, grandiose people that used their position for their own advantage.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice because it would make no difference to management. Management didn't care about the staffs opinions or feelings. The place operated on a gang mentality that caused a very toxic office environment. Management had their own agenda that was not in the best interest of the organization, its employees, or its members.
