    I have been working at Association for Talent Development full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Hour, CEO's vision is innovative, and HR is great.

    Cons

    There are a lot of fake nice people here. Be careful who you get close to. Most just have their own interest at heart and will backstab people. Which is to be expected in some work environments, but this one, in particular, is masked by people smiling and being fake nice. This makes it very had to grow. People work to keep you down in fear you might outshine them.

    Also, the pay isn't the best.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay!

    Pros

    CEO is good. Can learn workplace politics

    Cons

    It is very challenging to grow and give your best at work where the team and management both behave like separate entities. Specific departments lack trust towards the team and the team also lack trust on management. They need to be welcoming towards new employees. Employees who have been in the organization for long time, boss around and helicopters on the new employees, instead of working together as a team. Blame game prevails. Intricate politics destroy relationships. This is not the place where you will be excited and introduce your ideas. Rather you have to learn how to steer yourself with the political environment. You will learn the hard way out;trust less -get some experience and move out. High turnover and lay off rate. Stay away from office gossips-it will ruin you-Beware!

    Advice to Management

    please work towards building trust between departments, teams. Need strong leadership.

    Pros

    Good location-good CEO-good vision-friendly people

    Cons

    Very limited communication between team and management. Management is about saving themselves in some departments and does not care about the team. In some departments let's not mention which one-drama , politics and nasty backstabbing rules. Good and sincere employees lose interest due to lack of empathy and unnecessary backbiting. High turnover and involuntary termination rate - no wonder! Be careful - don't trust people as you friends here- they will screw up your life-be professional and just work.

    Pros

    Very smart people, good HR and overall pleasant atmosphere.

    Cons

    Need strong leadership from directors making sure everyone is on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    More FaceTime with team and making sure everyone is on the same page.
    Knowledge sharing is also very poor for a talent and development association.

    I worked at Association for Talent Development part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Incredible networking organization; dedication, energy and commitment of volunteers is contagious and inspiring. Good practical information and learning for training practitioners of all levels.

    Cons

    It seems the direction of the local chapter changes every time the board changes (which is every year). Offerings for emerging trends and high level practitioners is limited at times; however it is still a great resource and a great organization to volunteer for!
