I worked at Society for Neuroscience full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits package, despite low salary. They do promote a good work/life balance.

Cons

30-40% turnover rate amongst regular level employees due to a downward spiral of senior level management style and a lackluster attitude of contempt amongst regular employees. Senior level managers are micro managers and its very hard to get actual work done. High turnover leads to lack of continuity in work flow and frustration. Some senior level managers are insecure and refuse to see their own flaws leading to the problems in this organization's environment. Additionally, too much behind-closed-doors style management and decision making. All in all, there is an "us and them" attitude.

Advice to Management

Root out the problems you have amongst yourselves and the organization will improve.

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation time, etc.

    Cons

    Coordinators basically have the job of "managing" their bosses. You have no autonomy working for this place; everyone is a puppet. There are always rumors circulating about how senior staff wants to keep associates down, refusing to promote anyone or give them pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and let them use their brains, they might stick around longer.

    Pros

    Good location, nice people, comfortable hours

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't care how much you work, how much you do, how late you stay. Big turnaround, people are always looking lo leave, you won't move up if you don't kiss some large behinds. There are couple of those LARGE behinds which decide the fate of the company and I've seen people who kissed up but weren't qualified got promoted or even got positions created for them. New thing there - delegation of all senior manager's or director's duties down to their subordinates. Now regular staff even more overworked and performing jobs out of their job description without a raise or bonus ever, so the directors can have more time shopping for baby clothes or downloading music. If not for stale, old management, the company could do so much better.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the old concervative director and his stale possy. Seems that they don't care about the direction or the progress of the company. What have changed in the past 5 years? Nothing. It's time to refresh, renew, hire young, ambitious minds, give it a push. It's time to change the oil in this old vehicle and give it an ovehaul.... it needs some new fresh ideas, otherwise it will welt.
