    Pros

    You can "work whenever you want, wherever you want, as long as the work gets done" (and your boss isn't a complete control freak).

    Cons

    As with anyplace, your supervisor and co-workers can make or break you.

    Advice to Management

    Let the problem directors go already (you know who they are; EVERYBODY knows who they are!). Keeping and accommodating them ruins morale and sends the wrong message to staff.

    Pros

    ROWE work policies mean you can work from anywhere you want, whenever you want. Or simply hide at home and do nothing, if that's your thing.

    Cons

    There is no bright spot for this organization. Management is completely inept, often operating 10 - 15 years behind the times. Money is wasted on contractors, who are sent in a million different directions because no one can pick a single strategy. There is no such thing as long-term planning, or short-term planning, for that matter. Back-stabbing, gossip, and lying are common place. People high and low hide behind the mission as justification for their silly, inconsequential agendas. ROWE means that 90% of the company works from home 90% of the time, and little actual, meaningful work actually gets done. Lower level employees are squeezed for all their are worth, which usually isn't much as ASCO can only attract the bottom of the barrel. Directors leech ideas from whomever they can get them from, but have no back-bone when pressed by superiors and resort to ineffective brown-nosing instead of trying something new.

    Advice to Management

    Clear house - poor management is the root of most of this organizations problems. Hold people accountable to reasonably difficult standards, instead of treating everyone like children.
