    I have been working at American Academy of Family Physicians (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AAFP is a family friendly company who values staff and their contributions. The benefits and salary is generous and there are fun activities throughout the year to show the staff the executive team cares.

    Cons

    I have none that I could provide that would be considered a major con. The company continues to take staff considerations.

    Pros

    A great mission to be a part of. Great co-workers, by and large. Interesting environment. There is always a lot going on and more to learn. Gradually bringing themselves up-to-date in many areas where they had fallen behind, mainly in terms of technology and related skills.

    Cons

    HR policies regarding setting pay, pay increases, benefits, and vacation time are arcane and inflexible. Extremely complex environment that is difficult to keep up with - only a con if this frustrates you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay as much attention to the inside environment at AAFP as you do the outside environment. Notice who is doing all the real work and who is not.

    I have been working at American Academy of Family Physicians full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice location, flexible hours, competitive pay, good work/life balance, this sentence is to finish off the rest of the 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    USED to be a great place to work. Most executive level management has flipped in the last 36 months, replacing Directors and VP's who had been here 20+ years each. Lots of talk of culture, but nothing backing it up. Company has forgotten what it's here to do and has become an organization out to wring the last dime out of every family doctor. Some positions have no chance of advancement, while some areas promote people once a year (mostly title changes).

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the employees and less to the VP's bank accounts.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. Excellent 401k match. Good vacation accrual. Several good employee appreciation activities. Work schedule is good. Tuition reimbursement is helpful

    Cons

    Company helped advocate for Affordable Care Act and senior management told us our health care benefits would remain the same but our insurance out of pocket amounts are increasing and will continue to do so.
    Slow to promote, should provide management training for individuals interested in advancement. Sometimes get caught up in consultants and reorganizing.

    Advice to Management

    Better understand how members want to be represented

    Pros

    Fair to employees; good mission; respectable benefits and salary is fair especially in not expensive area of the country; good work life balance.

    Cons

    Allow dead wood to be employed too long; some ineffective senior leaders stick around too long; old school time clock mentality in some departments (sticklers about not working at home).

    Pros

    The AAFP is a great organization with a mission you can get behind. The staff is competent and nice to work with. Benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    Several "restructuring" events made it hard to feel like there was long term job security.

    AAFP provides a generous salary and does important work in the health care and public health fields.

    Some of the not so important work can take up a lot of time.

    Advice to Management

    Good job! Employees seem to love it there. I clearer and better communicated vision might be helpful.
