Good for international opportunities, bad for getting ahead.

Technical Officer I (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Academy for Educational Development

ProsThe breadth and depth of the knowledge of international projects that AED employees work on is incredible. They are in over 80 countries around the globe and have wonderful opportunities to participate in these programs.

ConsUsually when you get hired, they low-ball your offer. You can talk them up however. They also offer full benefits, but watch out for the medical plan that the doctors you want to see are covered. Many of the popular doctors under the larger health plans in DC are NOT in the health plan they offer. Also watch out if you're a short timer -- retirement doesn't kick in until one year on the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementTruth in advertising -- please don't say one thing, yet do another. It's a bit disingenuous.
