    I have been working at American Marketing Association full-time

    Pros

    It depends on which department you work in for there to be pros.

    Cons

    Most managers/directors don't speak to everyone on their team. Sometimes hierarchy is taken to the max and remaining staff feels the brunt of it (causing a low moral), and only certain employees get raises - most haven't received one in years. Plus the AMA doesn't promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within - maybe this will build moral.

    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    Very outdated ways of doing things, inexperienced leadership in many areas who don't communicate well.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 Outdated organization in most areas, don't stay too long or you will fall behind.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.
