Current Employee - Marketing Operations  in  Washington, DC
Current Employee - Marketing Operations in Washington, DC

Pros

Great benefits, location, co-workers, and mission - working with people driven to help others is always uplifting - but they're not all bleeding hearts, and quite fun!

Cons

Group decision-making stalls/delays objectives - or random high-level decisions don't make sense but must be implemented anyway. Lots of internal operations that don't always make sense. Also - issues w/ accountability in some staff/departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Minimize internal politics and make operations/functionality a priority, as well as accountability.

    Excellent resources and support from the national office but interoffice politics were difficult and not managed well.

    Pros

    Cutting edge grassroots organizing technology tools, resources for polling and travel, plus the motivation to make the world better for all AARP eligible individuals and those who are getting there.

    Cons

    AARP is a 24/7 organization so it is difficult to find a work/life balance. Promotions generally no longer come from within the staff so there is little opportunity to advance if you are in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help managers that need assistance managing staff and office politics.
