No opinion of CEO

Pros

--Employees are given more vacation time than at other professional associations.
--Lower-level employees had their own offices in some departments.
--Travel benefits are generous. Employees stay in very nice hotels when they have to work at the convention or make other trips.

Cons

Things may have changed since I left, but when I was there:

--The culture was so outmoded that it was ridiculous. It was extremely hierarchical, with managers invariably bowing to the will of higher managers and the board of directors.
--The dress code (no jeans! ever!) was much more formal than at other associations.
--Telecommuting was never, ever allowed.
--Flexible scheduling was never, ever allowed--despite the terrible traffic in the Tysons Corner area.
--Pay was not commensurate with workload.
--People, at least those in my department, were not happy. There was no real reason for the stress level to be as high as it was, but it was quite high.

Advice to Management

It's 2010. If the culture hasn't changed in the last few years, it should. Younger employees understand that the workplace "rules" of the past have no meaning anymore, and you will not be able to retain them if you don't try to catch up with other organizations that have adapted.

    Pros

    Great people. Plenty of opportunities to move around in the company. Lots of vacation days.

    Cons

    Compensation could be a little better. Work day is not flexible. 8:30 to 4:45. Don’t be late or leave early.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed my years at NADA. Management is doing a good job. Maybe offer some flexability in the work day. Traffic is terrible in Tysons.
