I worked at Direct Marketing Association full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great networking opportunities, great team, opportunities for media and industry exposure, training opportunities. People are the greatest asset.

Cons

Declining membership and revenues, layoffs, somewhat stuffy culture, management turn over, poor morale. Managment is more interested in self-promotion than the needs of the organization and staff.

Advice to Management

Provide more leadership to staff and boost morale, find new revenue streams, increase membership

    I worked at Direct Marketing Association full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Good work/life balance
    Decent people

    Cons

    Everyone is complacent within the company -- company culture of if it ain't broke, don't fix it (even if they've been doing the same thing for the last 20 years). I tried coming up with ideas to improve certain processes, and was ignored, and told to leave "well enough alone"
    Very little development opportunity
    Compensation could be better. I had been promised increased commission % if I hit a certain goal, and when that time came, it was ignored

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, and follow through with your promises
