    I worked at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The work of the organization is important to support speech-language pathologists and audiologists and the clients they serve. Volunteer leaders are appreciative and supportive.

    Cons

    ASHA pretends to be a great place to work with the lure of work life balance - this does not exist. Individuals are expected to respond to emails evenings, weekends and while on vacation. CEO walks around after core hours and commends people for still being at their desks. The Office does not shut down between Christmas and new years and it is expected that each unit is staffed - meaning that someone is working...

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and take a true temperature of the morale- and realize that staff are wary of surveys that can in any way identify them to Directors.

    I worked at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Very collaborative and professional work environment. Most of the key positions are master's level and doctorate level employees. I really enjoyed working for ASHA. The office was beautiful, decent benefits, in-house gym and 7.5 hour work day. Many employees stay long term. You work hard but feel that you can get projects accomplished without constantly being overwhelmed. Great staff. ASHA has a good revenue stream...

    Cons

    CEO and Chief Staff Officers struggle to make decisions and have a hard time staying current with new generations coming into the work force. They tend to travel internationally but without a true demonstration of how this benefits the membership. The leadership is slow to make significant change for the professions as demonstrated by the members asking for help on the same initiatives year after year. The board members...

    I have been working at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

    Pros

    nice people to work with for the most part

    Cons

    became eligible for benefit that was taken away after 2 months because they decided I was not eligible for the benefit???? sad that the benefits are soooo complicated that the benefits department does not know who is entitled to them.

    Advice to Management

    clear out the dinosaurs and make room for new employees that accept your changing culture.

    I worked at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good benefits, mission driven. The process for raises is transparent and you are paid fairly for your work.

    Cons

    In some departments, if you work standard hours, you are considered to be lazy. Staff are not honest about issues and concerns. There are a lot of politics that go on in the office. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Blaming does not solve problems. Gather pertinent information and come up with a resolution. Family life is important, too. Exempt staff deserve to have time off without having to check e-mail or respond to phone calls. Everything is not an emergency.

      I worked at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

      Pros

      ASHA is a wonderful work environment. Most people are extremely supportive, and it's a fun, friendly, and flexible work environment where they make it known that family comes first.

      Cons

      It's difficult to move up.

      I worked at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Nice environment and lots of nice people working there.

      Cons

      You hear a lot of gossiping going on (some people are really nice but there are a few really nasty ones to other people). Don't share too much personal info because it will get around. You aren't allowed to have references from your co-workers, just a professional review with ratings from 1-10 (not very helpful).

      Pros

      The members that ASHA serves are audiologists; speech-language pathologists; speech, language, and hearing scientists; audiology and speech-language pathology support personnel; and students. They are the best part about working here. They are kind, caring people who help people speak and hear. The culture is open and everyone on staff has a voice.

      Cons

      ASHA is a large association, and change doesn't always happen quickly.

      I have been working at American Speech-Language-Hearing Association full-time

      Pros

      ASHA is generally a great place to work, depending on the coach. Some are more reasonable than others. The benefits are good and it is very family friendly, with a good work-life balance. Perks include an onsite gym, fitness classes at reduced rates, and telecommute options. It's a feel good organization so you feel like you are making a difference.

      Cons

      Again, dependent on your coach, you can come off great or awful. Additionally there is a feeling that the facilitating team has more perks than general staff. If members knew the number of overseas trips they take, there would be an outcry, yet there is never enough money for staff to travel to meetings where you would expect them to be, i.e. annual convention. Justification for professional development is needed,...
