    I have been working at AAMC full-time

    Pros

    AAMC people care deeply about the company mission: improving the health of all. If you want to work in an environment where focus is on the greater good, look no further. Also, salary is competitive (for the region not just as a non-profit) and benefits are extraordinary with a 8% retirement fund match, parental leave for 4 weeks, exceptional health benefits and generous PTO and sick leave.

    Cons

    Executives in some divisions can be overly formal. In some work groups, staff can be slow to embrace organizational change.

    Advice to Management

    While you know your domain areas well, embrace your role as people developers as well. Learn from other industries and organizations on how to be the best leader you can be.

    Benefits, there are some nice staff members, some jobs have flexible schedules

    I have been working at AAMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. great location in DC.

    Cons

    Everyone here is super smart but they over compensate. The cultural is focused on who can make the best strategy and use the biggest words...without actually accomplishing anything. Everyday I was super stressed about being right as opposed to being innovative or creative.

    Directors seemed to focus too much time on "managing" an employee versus lifting and mentoring them up. I'm glad to be away from this culture and that silly open space that felt like I was in Kindergarten being monitored by my supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Open up, relax, and allow space for your staff. You've made it to that level because of hard work so allow others to shine in that. I found that the trust that was broken was mostly because supervisors emphasized the wrong things.

    You're losing good people because your leaders aren't leading...they are managing. Good people walk away because of this and your obsessive cultural on being "smart" and "right" all the time. The best people in life make mistakes and aren't afraid to ask questions. Your cultural frowns on that and doesn't allow any room for error or creativity. managers needing to get perfection all the time is ridiculous and nerve wracking. Relax...this aint rocket science.

    I worked at AAMC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits - they do have a good benefits program.

    Cons

    I was treated extremely poorly by a manager who continued to get promoted year after year.

    Advice to Management

    for senior managers - if entry level employees are miserable or not doing a good job look at how their manager treats them.
