    Pros

    You work with amazing families and awesome sponsors. There is a fantastic mission and huge strides in research in the past few years. Its fast paced and fun and promotes a team atmosphere!

    Cons

    I started here at the beginning of the recession. They instituted a salary freeze 6 years ago and it hasn't been lifted. Its difficult to be great at your job and not compensated for it. There also is a very cookie cutter path for promotions that doesn't fit everyone's goals. Its either a management position or you sit in entry level.

    Advice to Management

    It was a great decison to bring in Steve Derks, he has really strengthened the association and has "righted the ship" so to speak. However, they really need to listen to the ground level employees more and bring back the salary raise for staff to at least apply for.
