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 Management

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