    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice benefit package for staff

    Cons

    Numerous selective cliques spreading mis-information. Hard working, knowledgeable employees are many times pushed away from teams due to being a threat to staff in those groups. Scrum Process being used for operational teams that shouldn’t be used; constant finger pointing, halts productivity and increases staff workload to unmanageable levels which results in burn out. Compensation way below average. No formal training...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when receiving the same feedback from staff on certain staff or what isn’t working. The perception is no one is listening, or if you are, not taking action.

    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a high touch environment where people are inviting and collaborative. Some of my favorite things about this organization are the level of communication, the flexible work scheduling and the work-life balance. Being a small organization, you get to do a lot more hands-on work and feel like you're truly making an impactful contribution. I think this is the very first company that I feel I am able to grow personally...

    Being a small organization, there aren't necessarily a lot of opportunities for career advancement. Although, within your position there is great opportunity to develop as a professional by taking initiative and expanding your responsibilities. The experience gained is invaluable!

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the individual contributers and ensure that you are communicating their messages upwards candidly.

    I have been working at American Society for Quality full-time

    Pros

    Downtown location, ability to earn ASQ certifications to advance in your post-ASQ career, annual holiday shutdown

    Cons

    Company is imploding while reeling from an identity crisis spanning multiple years. Toxic work environment, bullying managers whose behavior is condoned by senior leadership, even HR doesn't prevent it. Worse yet, the same bullies are allowed to hold resources hostage to push their own agendas, so the negative consequences span beyond just personnel problems. Disconnected CEO and senior leadership leads to poor decision-making...

    Advice to Management

    Stand on your core values and what ASQ's culture used to be. Adopt a no tolerance policy for bullying and other unethical behaviors and have an action plan to back it up, or you will continue to push good people out and be left with only the toxic and the complacent.
