    I have been working at Federation of State Medical Boards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership, great training, you feel appreciated for your work, and coaching and development is very positive which makes you want to keep improving your skills

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to keep up with so much information, especially with frequent process changes, but it still challenges you to be better than you thought you could be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, positive energy, and training and development opportunity

    I worked at Federation of State Medical Boards full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good Resume builder.
    Benefits are decent.
    Paid unused sick time upon leaving the company

    Cons

    Poorly managed
    Not employee friendly
    Process always changing

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified leaders and don't keep them in meetings all the time. Stick with a system long enough to allow it to work and then improve on it as needed instead of starting over. Give trust and respect to valued employees and not punish the entire staff for things a few are doing. Handle the problems at the source.

    I worked at Federation of State Medical Boards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisor was lenient with missed days. Had fun events throughout the year, where office services was actually able to socialize with other departments.

    Cons

    Worked there a year & a half NO BENEFITS. Had the worst Supervisor ever in Office services. You never knew what to expect when she walked in each day. Very unprofessional, yells at her employees as if they are kids. Not easy to talk to. Shows no sympathy for anyone. Treats temps like stepkids, and she WILL lie to keep herself from getting in trouble with her boss.

    Advice to Management

    Need to look into why the temps wont stay long.

    Pros

    Most people are great. Nice office environment. Close to my home.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are only worried about you making quotas - not you as an employee or person.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone fits into a round hole. Turnover will never improve if the company doesn't accept that.

    I have been working at Federation of State Medical Boards full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are awesome! Most everyone here is very caring and helpful. There are a few bad apples, but that is anywhere you go. The benefits here are pretty nice - 5% match on 401(k) and 10% profit sharing. Also, every employee starts out with 18 days of PTO and they have a Tuition Reimbursement program. Management is very down to earth. The CEO tries hard to be involved and even has monthly birthday breakfast meetings with employees. The building has recently been remodeled and is very nice with multiple small rooms added to give employees space to take phone calls in private.

    Cons

    Medical benefits for Employee+Spouse/Children/Family are VERY expensive - I don't see how anyone could afford. The departments are pretty silo'd - I don't think they have any idea what each other is doing. Certain departments are great about doing things for employees while others do NOTHING. Also, I think more consistent/frequent communication from management on the strategic vision of the company would be nice. Sadly, there is not much room for career advancement - this appears to be largely due to the fact that people don't leave so there are very few job openings other than entry level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees on company's vision, as well as updates.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Great benefits - 10% profit sharing, 5% match on 401k, 18 days off + 11 paid holidays, plus fun atmosphere.... it's a family

    Cons

    Lower salary because nonprofit, but it's a good trade off. I would rather work 40 hrs/wk, get to spend time with my family, and receive so much in retirement for free.

    Advice to Management
