    Pros

    The association tries to create a work-life balance. It also tries to create a healthy workplace. Employees have the chance to take meditation classes and yoga. There also is a nap room. The health benefits are good, the mental health benefits are great--80 percent covered no limit on visits. Pay isn't so great. Andc. APA does encourage growth within the company. However, promotions are not always accompanied by a pay raise. Overall, it's a liberal place to work--good place for someone who is gay or transgendered. There are gay and lesbian employees in high positions. It is also very accommodating for those with physical disabilities. Great vacation benefits, 2 percent contribution to 401K and then a match up to 4 percent. Overall it was a good place to work, but some seriously dysfunction areas of the association have not been dealt with.

    Cons

    A good work culture that seems to be changing. Employees who are working with difficult management have virtually no place to go for help. Pay can be low.

    Advice to Management

    When employees are dealing with a difficult supervisor, they should have an advocate outside of their department. HR should have an employee relations specialist who helps employees navigate these types of problems.
