Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Director

I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time for less than a year

Pros

Ability to move laterally and gain broad experience

Cons

To be successful, should be tolerant of change as company expands into new areas of research, new modalities, new markets

Current Employee - Manager, Committee Operations

I have been working at ARVO full-time for more than a year

Pros

For 26 years I've worked for non-profit medical & allied associations much larger than ARVO, and I’m still amazed at how much value ARVO is able to provide to its nearly 12,000 members around the... world. That kind of magic is only possible with a dedicated team of professionals who back one another. The leadership is top-notch, mission-minded & supportive -- with a real open-door policy. The employee benefits package, too, is progressive and as great as anywhere in the DC-metro region (the 401k match alone is better than any other organization I've seen)!

Cons

Although generally I consider the staff size a positive (for example, we all know one another, share one floor & fit together in a large conference room), when we near the huge Annual Meeting, I wish... we could all clone ourselves. But, annual meetings are hectic no matter where you go.

Advice to Management

Keep the hometown feeling alive. The confidence, compassion, enthusiasm and positive feelings around ARVO are awesome!
