Horrible Horrible Horrible place to work.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Silver Spring, MDFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: there's nothing good about the organization.
Cons: you will have no work life balance.
American Nurses Association is possibly the most horrible place to work in the world. The CEO is not a nice person she only cares about herself and is raving lunatic. The Chief of Staff has no clue what she is doing, I never understood why she was hired for the position when the organization she was executive direct of made no money and had to be shut down while she was the ED. She doesn't speak to the association staff members, she will literally walk pass someone and not speak. You're an executive, you lead by example but all they have are bad habits.

The organization states that it is against bullying but that is pretty much all that the senior executive do is bully their staff. If you are looking for fair pay for what you do you will have to fight tooth and nail for your pay. Staff members who do the work are not appreciated but the employees with bad habits and work ethics are loved and promoted. Most of the staffer there have been there for years and stay because the don't have the skills need outside of the organization. If being paid low wages and having no private life are what your looking work ANA is the prefect place for you. Especially if you work in the confidential suite.

The American Nursing Association is not just a club it is a culture of nursing students/nurse that have been where you've gone & are about to go. Great for networking!

Extremely unhealthy environment with Terrible Leadership
Hard Unappreciated Worker (Current Employee), Silver Spring, MDJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: week off during christmas
Cons: horrible management, bullying, no work life balance
After working for over 7 small and large companies, this is by far the absolute worst company I have ever worked for. If you are considering employment here, RE-CONSIDER. The problem is at the Senior Leadership level and due to their lack of self-reflection, what could be an excellent company that actually does produce great product, is instead a low morale, bullying environment with no room for growth. Managers actually complain when they learn that their employee is attempting to transfer to another department. For this to be an organization with current and former Nurses, the character that these people possess is shocking and appalling. Management and Leadership show no respect to their employees, no appreciation whatsoever for hard work and great production and there is a huge issue with work-life balance.

If you are a person with good character and great moral fiber, this is not the company you need to work for. It will suck you in and change you because it’s an adapt to survive environment. The office politics affect growth and morale of employees. Leadership puts on a facade to cover up results of constant employee surveys with awful results that are screaming for change. Surveys are instead ignored and blame is placed in the wrong direction even though the results always reflect Leadership issues and complaints. There is very underhanded, deceitful actions taken out on employees if Leadership feels they are not 'tough enough' to make it amongst them. The CEO and COO at this company are awful, mean spirited women with huge ego and power trips that abuse their authority – more... to the fullest. If the Association Members, Board Members and President of this association REALLY knew what went on and how the vast majority of employees felt, they would've completely wiped out the Leadership team and brought in more qualified people with integrity and good souls that were actually interested in creating an innovative, friendly and impactful environment. The turnover is atrocious for such a small association. There is a minimum of 4 resignations per month, at an organization with 240 employees (You look at those statistics and tell me this place isn’t screaming for change). The department that is built to be the employee’s voice is instead stifled by Executive Leaderships inability to acknowledge responsibility and authorize the change needed/requested and actually reprimand Management when complaints are made. When bullying is brought to Leaderships attention constantly, and it is brushed under the table due to the politics of an individuals title or their work contribution to the association, that is appalling and extremely disappointing and absolutely warrants the lawsuits and reports to the EEOC that they receive. Instead the department structured to help the employee’s is where the employees direct their frustrations and anger out of lack of knowledge of who is really the core of the Associations problems.

I am ecstatic to be leaving this organization soon and feel sorry for the Nursing community to have such a terribly managed association, led by mean spirited and low character Executives, representing them. For the sake of what this association was originally created for and truly should stand for, I do hope that it experiences significant Management changes in the very near future.

(P.S. If you see ANY favorable comments made about this Association, it is a 1,000,000% probability that a member of the Leadership team wrote it. They are GREAT at trying to paint that false reality that “All is well and change is occurring”) – less

The American Nurses Association (ANA) represents America's registered nurses (RNs). ... Practice / Professional Standards; Nursing Quality; Ethics
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Silver Spring, MDJune 29, 2014
Pros: travel opportunities, on-hand medical staff for personal questions, medical field knowledge
Cons: family health circumstances dictated my departure
Working with this association as an Executive Assistant provided numerous opportunities to support the executive leadership as standards, guidelines and principles were proposed and initiated for RNs within the medical field. Each day, Monday through Friday, provided an opportunity to learn in detail the medical practices/procedures needed to support nursing excellence for the public.

The profession often demanded overtime when preparing documentation, travel and meeting materials for the yearly meeting known as the House of Delegates. Long days and work demands were always offset between co-workers and leadership with support, patience and moments for laughter.

Marketing Communications Consultant (Former Employee), Silver Spring, MDFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: location
Each day was different and exciting. I learned a lot from the Assistant Director of Marketing. She was not a micro manager and allowed me to take on major marketing campaigns and try new things.

My co-workers were fun and I learned a lot from them. The hardest part of the job was leaving when my consulting contract was up. The most enjoyable part of the job was creating new and innovative promotional campaigns.

Sr. Certification Specialist (Current Employee), Silver Spring, MDJune 4, 2013
Pros: week off paid in december, work schedule
Cons: no growth potential, salary
Working for a company for 7 years with many changes. I have seen a new system be developed and was a super user to test out the new system before it was released. I have helped train countless temporary employees and co-workers on different technical issues with the system and everyday work flow. The job is 100% customer service.We have a lot of high peak times when the workflow is constant.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Silver SpringMarch 11, 2013
Pros: great location in silver spring
Cons: high turnover
This organization has a poor work culture. The employees are unhappy and ANA has a high turnover rate. Management does not know how to manage, therefore, making it very hard for the employees to perform their duties effectively. The compensation is poor. The week off at Christmas is a plus. The members call in with questions and concerns and they are ignored. There is no training for new employees and there are no processes or procedures in place.
