Member Relations Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 30, 2017
Overall good first job coming out of college. You have opportunities to network and learn depending on how you balance your work load. The interviewing process was insane for me because it took months before they actually hired me. However, there are some positions that have been filled much faster.
Summer Fridays, Bagel Mondays and Pizza Fridays. There is some flexibility schedule wise also.
You are underpaid, benefits are pricey, the culture sucks, and there is no real opportunity for growth in entry level positions, You are also not challenged that much, As an entry level worker you are also not respected as though your ideas and opinions matter.

Great educational and self improvement opportunity. Great opportunity to benchmark with other major companies on various topics and issues. Great opportunity to help shape the industry and guide future standards and practices.

I really enjoyed my role and my peers. Unfortunately, the leadership team, including the CEO and all the EVPs and SVPs, have no leadership skills at all. Employee surveys share (over and over again) the need for leadership training but this is ignored. I would not recommend working for the ANA. Most of the employees are miserable when it comes to leadership.
Vacation time and holiday schedule
Leadership and management skills; lack of training and development for employees

There is potential for this to be an amazing place to work with all the great work we do; however, until there are fundamental management mindset and infrastructure changes, that potential will not be realized or realized very slowly. The work/life balance and compensation are very good, especially for a trade association, which makes the other bad aspects bearable. I've met some smart, interesting people here who I plan to keep in touch with. The hardest part of the job is staying focused with all the changes and management shifts around you. The most enjoyable part is the people I've met and interacting with the marketing industry.
