    I have been working at AAMC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits- Health, 401, and transportation.

    Cons

    Senior Management play the buddy system. Your promotion depends on who you know. Limited room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should sit down with the staff. To discuss the trust issues and the lack of integrity with senior management. Over worked and under paid.

    I have been working at AAMC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -The AAMC is small enough where you can feel like what you do matters. There's not so much of a hierarchy where you feel like your contributions will never have an impact. -They regularly solicit feedback to determine how to make this a better place to work. -Great location, in a gorgeous building -Salaries are competitive for the non-profit sector

    Cons

    -Many of the departments here hire for fairly niche skills and interests -The HR department has been making strides, but still has ways where they can improve -Most of the people here are wonderful, hard-working individuals, but there are some who seem to have snuck in and can be very frustrating to work with -Lunch options in the immediate area are plentiful, but can get more expensive than other neighborhoods

    Advice to Management

    There are times when you excel at transparency, and times when you seem to prioritize other items. Keep communication at the top of the list at all times, because you really don't want people speculating on those few items that you attempt to hold back on.

    Pros

    The organization has very good benefits and it'll help you stay there for a while. New Building is nice and I loved the open plan.

    Cons

    Few misguided folks are able to hold an entire unit hostage. Heavy reliance on contractors who have no willingness/incentive to solve the problem but to ensure that their contracts keep on getting extended.

    Advice to Management

    Management should evaluate any contractor who has been working for the organization for over 3 years. Either bring them in so that you can control the quality of their work or let them go. IT keeps on getting beaten up but they should really look at folks on the Business side too. Quite a few are fulfilling their personal agendas and backing people that don't have their goals aligned with the organization.

    I worked at AAMC full-time

    Pros

    Despite the size, AAMC has many wonderful opportunities to get involved in various internal and external projects. It is great for learning many skills at various levels especially if you are involved with data or technology.

    Cons

    Once you become a senior specialist it is difficult to advance beyond this level. AAMC position titles don't necessarily reflect the scope of responsibility. Directors can report to Directors and Chiefs to Chiefs--so it's a little confusing.

    The open space office concept is something to get used to.
