Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 12, 2017
The company generally tries to take care of its employees, but individual departments can be pretty isolated and move at different paces. If you're happy working 9-5 and slowly growing into a role, its a good place.
Researcher/Research Assistant/Laboratory Scientist (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 1, 2017
I was simply a lab associate, only associated with school. As such, I don't have too much to offer in terms of actual experience within the actual association. However, the school was a valuable workplace, primarily for experiential learning.
Manager Inside Sales and Licensing Operations (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 27, 2017
As a non-profit the culture was not geared at profits but the work of establishing psychology as a science. The organization had many stakeholders to appease and these included membership and a declining print customer base.
Member (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 27, 2017
Excellent place to work the culture is balanced, fed back is always positive, the management always supportive, and the salary is perfect, however; the days are long and the work can be stressful at times.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – July 16, 2017
Overall, the APA was a fantastic place to work. I loved the different classes they offered their employees (yoga, Tai Chi, Zumba, etc.) and unlimited access to the gym. On the flip side, offices were small in number (2-3 employees) so very stressful at times.
Mind/Body wellness on the surface, great wellness classes
small offices, overworked, company financial issues
Manager of Marketing & Sales/Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 5, 2017
It was a great early-career stepping stone and I learned a great deal about how to negotiate a position between multiple departments. Their publication department has strong content but isn't willing to invest in analytical marketing.
Cash Receipt Technician (Former Employee) – Washington DC – March 28, 2017
A typical day at American Psychological Association was very busy for me i was a cash receipt technical ,service center would bring me batches of work for me to processed. What i learned most is how the finance department runs. The work place was good. The hardest part of my job was the different soft ware i taught my self. I enjoy my co-workers, i liked my work. Over all i liked working for APA. Management was sometimes unfair they had their picks.
Public Information Officer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 21, 2017
The EMT is composed of whites and jews with little diversity in management. Most of the "diverse" staff are in low end roles as administrative assistants or mail room clerks. They have a "pay scale" where you must provide deficiencies so employees are not given annual pay increases. I was there for 11 years and they should have been cited for EEO violations
Manager, Books & Special Sales (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 30, 2015
It is fantastic to be able to literally help improve people's lives and/or piece of mind through the sale of the highest-quality books in clinical and research psychology and children's psychology. Our new partnership with the Children's Cancer Network about the backlist APA title "Living With Childhood Cancer" means that every new parent that uses their service will receive a free copy of a book that will help them through their difficult journey. Being able to be a part of that has been fantastic.
