Weak management and a "meeting" culture

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at American Society for Clinical Pathology

Pros

Most of the people who work there are very nice and the environment is low-key.

Cons

People spend their days moving from meeting to meeting, talking about things that need to be done that never get done. The marketing department, in particular, was mismanaged, disorganized, and dysfunctional.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Demand more accountability of your department managers.

    I have been working at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time

    Pros

    Easy going atmosphere
    Nice people
    Working for a good cause
    Free coffee/tea
    Nice location

    Cons

    Very little accountability among some employees
    Clash of skill levels between employees - talented employees mixed with poor ones
    Relatively low pay
    Unbalanced workload between employees
    Frequent and unproductive meetings
    Employees are recognized for how long they work there, not for how well they do their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure departments - give productive skilled employees more responsibilities and authority while terminating unskilled employees and hiring additional skilled help. Make department managers accountable for the work they sign onto. Project management is terrible right now.

    I worked at American Society for Clinical Pathology full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, casual dress in the summmers. The office has a great location downtown.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch and HR is borderline corrupt. Mid-level management drives out talent. No real room for growth or learning. Upper management has good intentions but seems incapable of addressing the problems with their mid-level managers.

    Doesn't Recommend
