Pros

The work atmosphere is very good and every employee can benefit from flexible hours and great medical coverage. I appreciate the level of understanding of the science in the labs from managament staff.

Cons

Number of sick days and the maternity leave could be better.

Advice to Management

Some poeple should take their responsability rather than blaming others for their mistakes.

    Pros

    Since its a non-profit organization that is working towards providing free TB vaccine to developing countries, it feels good to know that you are helping the world. Aeras is a small organization so you get the opportunity to interact with everyone including the CEO. For the same reason, you get the unique opportunity to have your hands in a lot of things that you would normally not have the chance to. So you really learn and develop a lot of skills while performing your work.

    Cons

    Can't really think of a downside. Mostly good compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep a good line of communication going. Let your direct reports know when they are doing a good job. It will fuel them to keep working hard.


  2. I learned a lot but was glad to leave.

    Pros

    The mission of developing an effective TB vaccine is compelling and very challenging. There were opportunities to get involved in different aspects of TB vaccine development. Work-life balance was good. Travel to Cape Town was awesome.

    Cons

    The management has good intentions but makes bad decisions. They need to listen more to those at the mid-level. In the clinical department management was very heavy-handed. Promotions were based on favoritism and good people were not effectively recognized or moved up. Conversely, there was no consequence for under performance. As a result good people left and those who remained were demoralized.
