Pros

If you're interested in non-profit (particularly healthcare and medical specialty societies), the experience you gain here will be invaluable! If you have no interest in those things, it's possible that you might be bored. Nonetheless, people are friendly, fun, very relaxed, understanding, lenient, and a huge promoter of the work/life balance initiative.

Cons

I hate to say it because everything else is so wonderful, but unfortunately the salaries are a bit low. This is to be expected from any non-profit organization. If you're 100% entry level, the salary might be more than you'd find at other places.

Advice to Management

Dear Management,

You're wonderful and we adore you. But there are certain departments that don't have many opportunities for advancement. Could you change that?

Love,

ASCO Employees

    I have been working at American Society of Clinical Oncology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance; great mission; prestige; benefits (good health/dental, tuition, 401k), exciting new CEO, mostly good people.

    Cons

    The one major, yet serious flaw is around career growth/salary. Salary structure: VPs make nice money, but forget about mid management (unless you work in IT). You can make 6 figures by simply going to another nonprofit in DC as opposed to alexandria..check out the 990. Lack of career growth/promotion; ASCO provides "job expansions" as alternative to promotion which is a guise to get more work out of you with measly pay increase as opposed true promotion. The job growth track is presented by HR under the pretense of transparency, but it's beyond complicated and arbitrary.

    Advice to Management

    Drop this career expansion crap and go back to having senior titles. Future emoloyers won't look at a resume and say, oh he got a job expansion. Doesn't translate into the marketplace. Foster competitive growth by allowing promotions all year (not everything has to be so fair that the healthy motivation and competition is stripped away). Managers should be required to receive 360 reviews from direct reports. Cut overhead to make up for salary gap. More money for employees beats free snacks.
