    I have been working at College of American Pathologists full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regularly benchmarked salaries. Good benefits that change to match common practice. Great cafe. Very smart staff. People smile and acknowledge one another while passing in the hallways. When you walk around, you see people engaging with one another at their work spaces and in huddle rooms. It looks energizing, collaborative, and that two-way communication is taking place.

    Cons

    Weekend travel is required for those attending member meetings ("comp" time can be used to account for weekend travel) so having or creating a flexible personal life is important for success at the CAP.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hold people managers accountable for developing their staff, providing feedback and coaching, and leading.
