    Review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome poeple should take their responsability rather than blaming others for their mistakes.

    A great stand up organization

    Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsSince 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlways 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.

    Aeras is good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsSmall 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
