    Great coworkers, poor management.

    I have been working at Society for Neuroscience full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, good coworkers, nice office, good hours

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement, micromanagement, little respect for workers' expertise and professional opinions, very little professional development, meaningless annual review process, low salaries, rigid adherence to hierarchical structure regardless of an individual worker's talents.

    One illustrative example: in the space of 12 months, there was upwards of 40% turnover and yet the underlying issues were never addressed. This makes employees feel replaceable and unvalued.

    In addition, many people in upper management have a knack for turning what are supposed to be ways of showing their appreciation into just another reminder of how little you are valued as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company can have low salary and be a great place to work OR high salary and be a poor place to work. SfN currently has low salary and is a poor place to work.

    If you want to improve morale, start respecting workers' professional expertise and ask people what they need from you (instead of assuming what the issues are) and respect them enough to believe what they are saying.

    In addition, add a way for employees to provide feedback on their superiors (you might be surprised at what you learn, good and bad) and then believe what they say. Most of the discontent is not just "sour grapes"--it comes from a genuine desire to feel appreciated and respected as a human being and as a professional.
