    I worked at Aaas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding, the building is beautiful, and you're working with people who really care about their mission.

    Cons

    The DC metro is a steaming pile of fail. However when you get to the office look at the artwork for a few minutes, it can really center you. Yes, they have artwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people chances to do different things. Take chances, your talent pool is your most valuable asset by far.

    I worked at Aaas as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a wonderful company, it's good office environment. With good security, nice location. Near Chinatown, a lot of food. Generally, it's pretty comfortable to work there.

    Cons

    Since it's not an IT company, the resources they paid on Website are very limited. It's not a good place for the first job.

    I worked at Aaas

    Pros

    AAAS has great employee benefits, especially their retirement plan. The pay is competitive in the area compared to other non-profits. The company allowed me opportunities to take additional training often.

    Cons

    There is poor communication between senior management and middle management. In my expereince I saw favoritism when it cam to promotions, raises and bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the leadership at AAAS is to simply listen to the staff more. The issues I brought to the attention of the management while I was there often seemed to fall on deaf ears.
