    Pros

    Some leaders are very passionate about their work.
    Many of my colleagues are very smart.
    AIR has a diverse range of projects that can provide some variety and interesting work.
    Great benefits.
    Flexibility is great. The most important focus is getting the work done, but you can shape your schedule within reason.
    AIR's HQ is located near the Georgetown waterfront. This is a great area for lunch breaks, especially when the weather is nice.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not great, especially for those of us who are willing to work hard. A lot of hours are donated to business development.
    Hit or miss project management can be frustrating.
    While the pay is fair, it is not great.
    It's very difficult to get promoted.
    Very little racial diversity in senior positions.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees at all levels, especially junior levels.
    Train project directors and leaders. It's not enough to be subject matter experts.
    Senior managers need to get in touch with what is happening on lower levels.
    Improve career paths for hard working people who want to move up.
