    I worked at ECFMG full-time

    Pros

    My colleagues were the best part of working for ECFMG. I was honored to be working with such a dedicated, caring, bright group of professionals.

    The CSEC middle and upper levels management are very involved in operations and care about the employees. The CSEC Centers are run very well with supportive involvement from upper management. Teamwork is encouraged within the centers and there are lots of opportunities for professional development.

    The benefits were amazing and getting a 15% contribution on the 403(b) is unheard of. The health insurance was great and HR kept adding more benefits which was amazing.They pay for your college tuition too.

    Cons

    Working in a collaboration between ECFMG and NBME meant there were some extra layers of bureaucracy to deal with. It slowed down decision-making and added unnecessary complexity.

    I have been working at ECFMG full-time

    Pros

    Good employee relations, personal & professional growth, training & learning development, work/life balance, and flexibility of hours are just some of the reasons why you'd want to work for ECFMG (not to mention, excellent benefits and compensation packages). Team members from all levels of the organization are valued and encouraged to give feedback and contribute ideas. Employee recognition and engagement is at the forefront of the company culture and begins at the top.

    Cons

    Transitioning to a desk job after years of face-to-face interaction with leaders/peers requires a big adjustment. Fortunately there are a number of professional development workshops and opportunities available.

    I have been working at ECFMG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are excellent (tuition reimbursement, paid holidays and vacation, SEPTA pass/parking, generous 403b contribution, wellness program), lots of opportunities to take part in professional development activities, important work, a culture that values ideas from all levels.

    Cons

    Company is going through a lot of growth which can be stressful, and decisions/changes and their rationale are not communicated well to lower-level staff; company policy and expectations are not uniformly applied across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Give your lower-level staff insight into specific changes coming down the road.
