    Cons

    -The strategic plan took on too much too soon and it caused some hardships that we are learning from -A few coworkers who care about the AMA, but don’t take the time to step back, listen, and understand before judging. The recent reviews on here are narrow... examples of some pockets of passive aggression that just isn’t helpful -Need ways to get work done more efficiently and technology to make it easier to stay on...

    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Friendly people with diverse backgrounds. Good opportunity for entry level people to gain basic experience. Casual dress code.

    Cons

    Very outdated ways of doing things, inexperienced leadership in many areas who don't communicate well. Pattern of hiring people then letting them go when they realize they didn't know what they needed. No innovation or creativity. Outdated organization in most areas, don't stay too long or you will fall behind.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of listening to members, and giving them what they actually want.
