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

    Pros

    Benefits are great. 20 vacation days, 50% coverage on infertility treatments (IUI, IVF). Half day Fridays for summer and fall, 6 weeks maternity leave (and you gain more the more years you spend there). You can telework two days per week, usually. Tuition reimbursement up to $8k

    The company is great to work for and cares about its employees. The staff is usually pretty friendly, and it's an "easy" place to work in that regard. You will gain tons of experience here.

    Cons

    No advancement unless you are willing to hop around departments, which is unfortunate. They also suffer from what many companies suffer from: Great work is rewarded with more work. You only get a 2.8% salary increase per year, and getting a raise is practically impossible, even if you can prove you've expanded your role within the company. Management has the same slogan for anyone who asks for a raise or external title change: "Well, I really went to bat for you on this, but [fill in name of boss] and HR had other things they needed to push for this year. But we're hoping to get you there next year."

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep your employees, you need to give them room to grow. Success and high quality performances should be met with salary increases and promotions, as opposed to the lack of transparency and side-stepping issues. If you cannot offer your employees these things, then that just reflects poorly on upper management within the company, and on the company itself. The ACC is a good place to work, borderline great, but could be solidly great and exceptional if these things were taking into consideration.
