    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time for more 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....

    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.

    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time

    Pros

    Mission is center to the organization. Team-focused in the way work gets done. Variety of work is interesting. Many chances to learn new skills. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Non-profit culture can sometimes slow to change. Working with volunteers is very rewarding, but can also be challenging to get work done in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on mission, future organizational health, and creating an environment that helps staff to do their jobs well, in spite of internal/external politcs.

    I worked at American Society for Quality

    Pros

    Small to medium sized company. In IT that means a lot more local control of all aspect of IT. Very passionate about Quality, from standards to controls, education, the whole lot. they have a mission and many believe in it.

    Cons

    Very siloed company structure. Different heads of diffrent parts of the company do their own thing and not a ton of coordination between different parts ofthe company. Directors are very protective of their silo. All the different groups however have a bad habit of not involving IT in their technical needs then expecting an immediate turn around of their needs and suddenly they find out signifcant amounts of time and...

    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Co workers are polite and professional. The building is proudly well maintained and clean.

    Cons

    A general undertone of negativity exists. "This is the way it's always been " attitude – no impetus to change. Management expects miracles to be performed, but the resources are not provided nor much credit given. There is little to no career development in the way of professional training or career paths. This is ironic since this is a large portion of what ASQ promotes but apparently does not believe in when...

    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The people I worked with (for the most part) were wonderful until recently. The work-life balance is great. There is a lot of flexibility with your work schedule.

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low at this company. Management has zero trust in their employees to do their jobs and there is no appreciation for their employees. There is no career growth, despite what they may tell you in your interview. Only lateral moves can be made (and even that is rare), and they offer no training to help you grow. You essentially are stuck there. The technology is so out-of-date, as are their products....

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and clear. Try to understand what your employees do and realize that you hired them for a reason and you should trust them to do their jobs. Show some appreciation. I'm hopeful that the new CEO can make drastic changes at this organization.

    I worked at American Society for Quality full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    You may learn a few things. Some may be useful.

    Cons

    Like a religion, the zealots are so enamored of their own exhaust, they can't tell what works and what does not. If ever there was a book to be written about a self-defeating management group, this place deserves a feature. Chaos, lack of focus, inability to self-analyze, inability to think critically or execute well plague what should be a relatively simple organization. The visions of grandeur that endure are amusing,...

    Advice to Management

    Board doesn't understand that CEO has them fooled with rotating three year terms. CEO nest so feathered, he is only interested in self-preservation. Org health irrelevant. Resign.

    I have been working at American Society for Quality

    Pros

    The volunteers are extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. ASQ had hired some smart, saavy managers; however, they left for better jobs.

    Cons

    Lack of professional HR staff; ineffective and unfocused management team; favoritism; no accountability for management from the board of directors.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend a new CEO.

    I worked at American Society for Quality

    Pros

    Extra paid vacation days compared to other companies. Flexible with time (leaving early when necessary or working from home).

    Cons

    Pay is substantially lower than what it should be. Company is extremely siloed in the sense that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, resulting in a lot of redundancy. The company does not practice what it preaches - I have never seen anyone utilize a quality tool/mechanism. Tenured staff are resistent to change and are in management positions resulting in an organization that has not evolved to maintain...
