I have been working at AARP full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

People are smart, dedicated and progressive. Salaries are excellent for non-profit work. Working conditions are reasonable. Opportunities for advancement are better than at many other organizations. The organization has clout and uses it most of the time to improve life for older Americans.

Cons

Management and bureaucratic structure are--I believe--far too disorganized. A lot of time, money and talent is wasted because of regular re-organizations. Power struggles at the top of the organization take the edge off of what AARP might accomplish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep AARP's mission in mind at all times. Keep personal ambitions from creating power struggles that blunt the impact the organization could have.

    I worked at AARP full-time

    Pros

    People are fooled by the brand reputation

    Cons

    Lying, cowardly management - especially in the Brand Department. Senior management can not be trusted either. Unfair personnel moves to fit internal political agendas. Very slippery and dishonest in avoiding wrongful termination and discrimination charges.
