I worked at AAMC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The AAMC has a great mission and that is focused on improving healthcare for all by ensuring quality education for future and current physicians and medical researchers. They promote from within and are keen to offer educational opportunities for current employees. They frequently seek input from employees about their experiences and are actively working to improve the company culture.

Cons

Unfortunately, for many of the reasons that working for the AAMC might be considered a check in the "Pros" column, it can be very challenging to work there, especially if you are an outsider coming into the organization. Although upper level management is actively working to improve the culture, it isn't quite filtering down to the line managers yet. Trust issues, inconsistencies with applying company policies, expectations and opportunities for success and continued improvement can be a real challenge. Intelligence in the form of "book smarts" is prized above real leadership qualities which leads to ineffective and even harmful managers being promoted quickly and issues of high turnover and employee burnout abound.

Advice to Management

Work to ensure consistency, trust, fair treatment and promote individuals who show real leadership qualities, not just increased revenue or an expensive education.

    I worked at AAMC full-time

    Pros

    Many units live up to the mission and values but it can be the luck of the draw. Many people can be really nice and collaborative. Work-Life balance and 403B, especially for managers over 1 year. New CIO may provide relief.

    Cons

    Senior leaders can be overly impressed by form over performance. Senior leaders are focused externally rather than on internal operations. Over reliance on medical education experience to the detriment of real corporate operations experience. Non-profit outlook creates lack of urgency.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone, anyone, from the real corporate world and stop being impressed by managers and leaders who only manage upwards. Do you really know who is and who is not really living and working according to the defined values and cultural goals?

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

    Pros

    The work is fulfilling, relevant, interesting, and challenging. The people are nice, communicative, encouraging, fair, and responsible. The office itself is quiet, clean, and spacious. You get a lot of privacy and amenities (private office, large windows, free coffee/tea, filtered water, covered parking spot for bicycles).

    Cons

    No option to get an elevated desk for standing (without a medical condition). That is my only complaint!
