I have been working at AARP full-time for less than a year

Pros

Pay was great for an internship
The people love what they do
Organization has a lot of clout

Cons

Huge bureaucracy
Large organization, so it easy to get lost in the mix

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to get the upper management to interact with interns more. Also, it would be great to have events for interns.

    I have been working at AARP

    Pros

    There are a lot of talented, dedicated employees here, and good resources. AARP is a well-known and mostly trusted brand.

    Cons

    Upper management is uninspiring and doesn't seem to know what it's doing. Huge resources are often committed to projects that never fulfill expectations. The much-touted One AARP is not happening internally; each big division seems to go its own way. And externally the AARP brand is still a multiplicity of identities, only a few of which really resonate with members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inspire more, lead more, cooperate more.

    Disapproves of CEO
