    I worked at Ecological Society of America full-time

    Pros

    Hands off approach to work.

    Cons

    Where to start. Senior staff gossip about their staff openly and loudly, for their interns and other staff members. Humiliation and bullying is rampant. Unprofessional, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Retire your older staff who worked in an era where intimation and harmful gossip were allowed in the work place.

    Pros

    -Great work environment

    Cons

    -Very little room for growth
    -Salary/compensation is a little lacking, but the upward momentum will hopefully change that for future employees
    -I haven't been here too long, but I can't honestly think of anything else wrong with the company at this point in time.

    I have been working at Ecological Society of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible and laid back working environment. Nice people. 403(b) is good (10%). Annual leaves starting at 2 weeks to 3 weeks after 5th year. Can carry forward 240 hrs of annual leave.

    Salary can be low. Only 2 layers of positions: entry staffs or directors. Directors never quit and there is no opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Create some mid level position to retain some good staff.
