    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.

    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    A great professional organization for those interested in Quality Management, to learn new skills, validate existing skills as well as brush up on them.

    Excellent networking opportunities.
    Great place to learn and get formal recognition for existing skills.

    No downsides that I can think. This is a professional organization which is helping its members in various ways.

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

    Pros

    ITEA is an awesome experience. You'll learn a lot, meet new people and be exposed to some awesome company projects.

    Cons

    No real downsides. ASQ in the last year is trying some new things with the criteria and the judging process and that was upsetting to some people. The Criteria will change and ASQ is just trying to make things better.

    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good first job learn some business skills at a recognized employer. good work/life balance. decent salary. not for 'fast paced' people.

    Cons

    not for fast paced people. kind of boring. slow management.

    Advice to Management

    this place is kind of stagnant and not as dynamic as other schools/providers doing the same thing. get into the 21st century with technology, tools, and markets.

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

    Pros

    Nice location on Riverwalk downtown.

    Cons

    They try very hard to have a fun culture, but fail. There seems to be one manager/director in particular that cares more about himself than his employees. We fall through the cracks and are not given the resources to succeed. I've been waiting for a computer that works properly for over a year. Lazy employees don't respond to emails and have a poor attitude which is contagious. Management does not promote from within. They like to keep you in your current position. The only way to grow is to completely change departments.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the people who assume that they have been there too long to be fired for poor work and poor work ethic. Hire from within the company instead of paying people from outside a higher salary than you would have to pay if you would simply promote someone.
