    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a job, otherwise no pros.

    Cons

    Mismanaged and does not practice what is preached.

    Advice to Management

    This organization is the exact OPPOSITE of what a quality organization should be. It is mismanaged and most employees, if not all, do not have a background in quality, eneineering, or a related field and therefore have no idea how to run the business or help the needs of the members. It is the blind leading the blind. They are currently going through an “organizational transformation” due to the lack of relevance and steady decline of members that’s been consistent for a decade. This company is outdated. They also set unrealistic expectations because, departments are siloed and there is zero teamwork or input from management. Management also gets promoted based on their incompetency and ability to talk their way through nothing, using buzz words like transformation, strategy, and roadmap, without doing any actual work. There is also no job security for individuals as it’s a commen occurrence that employees are let go on a regular basis. It’s a revolving door. Never in my life have I seen such high turnover. Benefits also leave something to be desired and health insurance is basically a Catastrophic plan. No severance if you get let go. I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone.

    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great. I enjoy my co-workers and my direct leader. The work is challenging and the pace is ideal (moving fast and feeling stretched but not working 50+ hours/week).

    Cons

    Smaller organization and relatively flat so there aren't always readily available opportunities for growth. That said, there are certifications, trainings, online courses, etc. available to ensure continued development.

    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very silo-ed atmosphere--don't dare try to expand your role without someone feeling put out. Also, I have never been as bored as I was working there.

    Advice to Management

    When employees ask for more work or challenges, deliver!

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

    Pros

    I got a lot of experience and worked with really nice people. Loved the community I worked with. I got to try a lot of new initiatives. I learned a lot and they have a big client base so I was able to do more than if I worked for another non-profit.

    Cons

    Meetings were insane. You spent most of your time going to them. Men were often promoted over women to the highest level positions.

    Advice to Management

    hire more people of color, women for upper level positions.

    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are genuinely nice and pleasant to deal with, save for a few weirdos and unprofessional managers.

    Cons

    Lying, backstabbing, and unprofessional management. Worthless HR who sides with said management. Preaches a culture of accountability, but really promotes a culture of fingerpointing and throwing people under the bus. As a whole, the organization is deathly afraid of change. Hands down, the worst experience of my career. Stay far away.

    Advice to Management

    PROTIP: Reorgs for an organization with a sick culture and declining membership is rearranging the chairs on the Titanic.

    Pros

    Good Benefits and employee feedback is encouraged. The mission of ASQ is easy to represent and get behind - good palceto work

    Cons

    There has been a veey high turnover rate in the time I have been there. Positions are not well defined and seems to be in constant state of change and re-org.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to focus n create a stable and well defined organizational chart. Define the positions and responsibilities and give people a good idea of where they fit in the organization.
