    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at American Academy of Arts & Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my department (editorial) the management was great. Even as a more junior team member I felt like my opinion was valued.

    Cons

    The culture was not great. Poor work/life balance; LOTS of anxiety from staff due to lots of comings and goings under the previous president. A bit of a "martyr" mentality re: staying late, working events on weekends/nights, etc. Good compensation; poor health insurance package.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Academy of Arts & Sciences (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    3 phone calls, 2 emails, 2 interviews. All communications were positive and comfortable. First interview with my manager was good. Second with the team, publications manager, PR manager, back-end coder, and CEO was also good. Having to wait 20 minutes for CEO to be present was awkward for all.

    Interview Questions

    • I was prepared for that, but there were no difficult questions, just an unexpected one. CEO asked me how I liked the Academy website. My position would include 40% web editing.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Good. I asked for salary with range of & $10,000 (next time, I will give a range of $5,000.) I was offered less than half of range. I could have counter-offered, but didn't.
