    I worked at American Academy of Neurology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, nice benefits, flexible work schedules, some great bosses. In general very family friendly.

    Cons

    Silos between departments, some leaders get too much power, and very small organization. It seemed there were discrepancies in career advancement by division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on aligning projects to goals, better and more consistent supervision practices across the enterprise.
