    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to earn ASQ certifications... but only upon manager approval and as openings are available

    Cons

    Pay is incredibly low, health benefits are expensive and don't cover much of anything, minimal advancement opportunity, company does not develop staff, staff are held to higher standards than leaders, unqualified leadership, no real sense of company identity, indecisive leaders

    Advice to Management

    Learn to get rid of ineffective leaders, make decisions and give direction - not doing so and letting ambiguity run wild for others top take advantage of will sink the ship. Promote those using quality tools and best practices internally

    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Nice downtown location close to the riverwalk. Relaxed, low-pressure work environment. Some super coworkers and the members are decent too. Good opportunity to learn about quality processes and projects, which can be beneficial for your post-ASQ career. If you are in the right department, you may have the opportunity to work on cross-functional teams to learn new things and meet people outside your department.

    Cons

    A lot of the other reviews hit the nail on the head. ASQ does NOT practice what they preach. Constant "transformation" aka reorg with no long-term plan and very little communication. ASQ promotes many quality and change tools to its members but uses almost none to navigate its own "transformation." Overall, weak leadership. Few managers have quality certifications beyond a CQIA. Little mentoring from managers to their...

    Advice to Management

    Put in the hard work to save the association before we all leave--members included. Do more with employee engagement meeting feedback. Create some action plans beyond guidelines on "how to respond to emails" and make plans for real change. Try using 360-degree reviews to help evaluate management. Train managers so they can actually lead and get rid of the dead weight. Use the quality tools and training you promote. Don't...
