    I have been working at Aeras

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is very good and every employee can benefit from flexible hours and great medical coverage. I appreciate the level of understanding of the science in the labs from managament staff.

    Cons

    Number of sick days and the maternity leave could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some poeple should take their responsability rather than blaming others for their mistakes.

    Pros

    Since its a non-profit organization that is working towards providing free TB vaccine to developing countries, it feels good to know that you are helping the world.

    Aeras is a small organization so you get the opportunity to interact with everyone including the CEO. For the same reason, you get the unique opportunity to have your hands in a lot of things that you would normally not have the chance to. So you really learn and develop a lot of skills while performing your work.

    Cons

    Can't really think of a downside. Mostly good compared to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always keep a good line of communication going. Let your direct reports know when they are doing a good job. It will fuel them to keep working hard.

    Pros

    Great not-for-profit organization that employs many dedicated and highly knowledgeable employees. The mission is a great one, which is to develop a TB vaccine that provides higher protection to patients around the world but particularly to those in developing or third world countries.

    Cons

    Small company makes it difficult to really move up in position. However there is a lot of opportunity to grow and learn professionally because you are able to interact and work along side many departments and talent. No real cons. Aeras is a great and growing organization to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice to management in general. I interact with managers and directors and I have not had any bad experiences. We are able to work together to resolve issues and grow as an organization.

    No opinion of CEO
