I have been working at American Institute Of Physics full-time (Less than a year)
Overall, I really like working here. The people are friendly, the HR staff are helpful, and the company values its employees having a work-life balance. Most employees have their own offices, but most people keep their doors open -- you get personal space to work, but it's easy to drop in and talk to someone. Many people stick around here a long time, which I take as a good sign.
While the building itself is really nice, it's isolated both from University of Maryland and from Washington DC. There are no lunch places or coffee shops within walking distance. Upper-level management seems to be very big on having a committee for everything, which feels a little corporate to me. My position has very little upward mobility within the company.
Advice to Management
I haven't been here long enough to have strong feelings about the management, but I do feel that there are an excess of committees. All of those meetings can really eat into productivity.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics.
Very comprehensive and informative interview. Was able to meet several potential co-workers who provided a good overview of the position and the department in which I would be working. Learned a great deal about the position as well as the company strategy. Was given a chance to express my short and long term career goals. Entire interview took 2-3 hours. Offer/negotiation process was also professional.
Straightforward and professional
