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

    Pros

    Non-profit work in a medical-related business. Every so often decent lunches were bought for the employees.

    Cons

    High turnover; untrained/poorly trained management; extraordinary amounts of office drama, politics, and hypocrisy; no recognition or support.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Your most valuable resource is your employees, but you certainly don't follow that creed.

  3. "Director"

    I worked at Endocrine Society full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, flexibility in schedule. People are great to work with and for the most part are very competent. The majority of members you work with are very support of staff.

    Cons

    Virtually no promotion opportunity when you get to the higher levels. They talk a lot about developing their employees but once you get to director level, it's almost like they give up on you.

    Advice to Management

    Give all your staff opportunities to grow and advance, not just the ones at lower levels.

    I have been working at Endocrine Society full-time

    Pros

    I come to work every day to very bright and talented co-workers. Our CEO has been here for almost 3 years and has a strong understanding of our business, speaks to our programs like a pro, and overall has the company's and employees best interest at heart. I have had the opportunity to grow in my department and learn many new things because I have a supervisor that pushes me to challenge myself. I also see many similar strong leaders in other departments. With a new CEO comes some change and some turnover. This can be hard for employees, but it is important to embrace the positive change that can come along with that. We have had some change in the HR department, but we now have a strong leader in that area. We work hard at the Society, but we are rewarded and appreciated. In addition, our CEO gives us extra days off in the summer and during the Holiday's. The benefits are excellent here.

    Cons

    It can be a bit fast paced with fires to put out, which makes it difficult to be proactive, however this would be the same almost anywhere you work. There are the normal office politics, however, you will not find any organization that doesn't have some of that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay in touch with staff concerns and making sure there is always that open door policy. Departments need to continue to share knowledge and communicate effectively with each other.

    Pros

    -Friendly Staff (co-workers)
    -Days Off
    -Free Lunches

    Cons

    CEO is a narcissist and has ruined the culture. Extremely high-turnover, lack of strategy, and she facilitates a racist culture for the few minorities left in the organization. No real growth opportunities unless you are in particular demographic.

    Advice to Management

    The board should really take a closer look at the organization look at the turn-over rate.

    Lots of surprise days off with the new CEO.
    Fun group of colleagues.
    Lots of projects to get involved in if you're looking for it.

    A lot of turnover going on right now.
    Year-round stress. It seems like there's always something going on.

    Hire more staff.
