    I have been working at American Association for the Advancement of Science full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Challenging and semi-fast paced work environment. With each successful project and/or display of maturity, a gradual increase of projects, responsibility and accountability is given in turn.

    Cons

    Camaraderie among different departments is very divisive and individuals who are not keen on 'Type A' supervisors may want to do a thorough job during their interview process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The AAAS upper management staff are really wonderful and lead with enthusiasm and encouragement.

    Typical non-profit pay, atypical organization with a smart future

    I have been working at American Association for the Advancement of Science

    Pros

    Low stress, flexible vacation/personal time, great company outings, great coworkers, receptive management. Departmental cohesion means you are likely to make friends within days of joining AAAS. Casual Friday. Dedicated leaders.

    Cons

    Non-profit pay, no bonuses, slightly understaffed, some communication issues. Due to the nature of the organization, almost everyone is on a tight deadline. The work hard (little play) mentality is strong in this organization. Although we have a roof-top lunch area, few people ever use it. Almost everyone chooses to eat at their desk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees and promote company loyalty. A competitive salary will help us sustain ourselves in this expensive city.
