    I have been working at American Medical Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It feels good to help physicians
    Working for a nonprofit is fulfilling
    They treat employees pretty well, managing salary raises and bonuses most years

    Cons

    Very compartmentalized, not much cross-department collaboration
    Top-down management, not an innovation-friendly place
    Change is the enemy
    Any change happens slower than molasses if it isn't shut down right away
    Mediocre and bad managers stay in place
    Managers aren't trained in how to handle people; they're promoted because of seniority or because they're good at their original job.
    Working at home is either banned or happens on the down-low

    Advice to Management

    360-degree reviews are long overdue
    Let employees work from home -- it will save money and will be seen as a great benefit and promote work-life balance. This is standard across all industries.

    Pros

    Larger company with room for growth in certain departments. Departments are given much reign to develop and run on their own.

    Cons

    Non profit organization. Company has undergone reduction in workforce several times over the last 10 years. Needs to be more innovative and forward thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Professionally develop y9our staff
