    I worked at Association of National Advertisers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Appreciated the flexible hours.

    Cons

    Almost no professional growth. A lot of political, insecure, people. A very toxic, environment. Modeled from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Make this a better place to work by incentivizing growth opportunities, and pay your employees a decent living wage for the NYC area. Every year I was at that company a huge amount of people left. Not normal. Employees should want to be hired, and promoted, not fleeing at the first job they get.

    I have been working at Association of National Advertisers full-time

    Pros

    Flex-time is definitely a plus, that and a relatively relaxed dress code. They do provide pizza and bagels twice a week, which is also nice, and have implemented a few employee networking events to approximate some kind of camaraderie in the office.

    Cons

    - There is no growth path for mid-level employees at this organization
    - There is no clear strategy for some of the business decisions made at the organization
    - It is pretty clear that HiPPO logic is the only logic that determines how things move ahead at the organization.

    Advice to Management

    You need to trust the experts you've hired, you need to develop talent internally versus launching initiatives externally proclaiming that we need more talent development, stop with the HiPPO decision-making, start using strategic methodologies when looking to develop new products and services.

    I worked at Association of National Advertisers full-time

    Pros

    The ANA is fortunate to have so many wonderful people working for them. They keep good talent because of the people and vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Toxic culture, lack of respect for employees. No accountability at leadership level. Lacking management skills, VP and higher level.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some new skills and treat your people with respect.
