    I have been working at American Geophysical Union full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great mission and strategic plan. Newish management team that is still getting it's feet. Capable CEO. Good opportunities for people with initiative. Benefits, location and working conditions are good.

    Cons

    Can be a stuffy at times though people are nice enough. There seem to be structured efforts underway to loosen up and bring people together. But there are also way more projects underway than can be well-managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New staff need more orientation to the work of AGU and all the complexities. Managers could do more walking around and talking with staff and not just in their own groups. It's a bit too hierarchical and quiet. Supervisors need to be better connected to each other's work. Not enough internal communication. And as mentioned above too many projects than can be done well.
