Pros

Low stress, flexible vacation/personal time, great company outings, great coworkers, receptive management. Departmental cohesion means you are likely to make friends within days of joining AAAS. Casual Friday. Dedicated leaders.

Cons

Non-profit pay, no bonuses, slightly understaffed, some communication issues. Due to the nature of the organization, almost everyone is on a tight deadline. The work hard (little play) mentality is strong in this organization. Although we have a roof-top lunch area, few people ever use it. Almost everyone chooses to eat at their desk.

Advice to Management

Reward your employees and promote company loyalty. A competitive salary will help us sustain ourselves in this expensive city.

    Pros

    Great modern office building and location in downtown Washington DC. Most employees have their own office with a great view of chinatown or the old post office. The location is only a block from metro center (metro station). The majority of the staff members are friendly and easy to work with. The company has great benefits: employee contribution 403(b) plan, 2 weeks paid vacation, holidays, and 2 extra holidays, flex plan, good health care options with low premiums, dental plan, transportation partially subsidized, and normaly a yearly bonus. The staff is mostly older, which can be good and bad for an organization. I would like to see some young staff be hired and get involved with the future of the organization.

    Cons

    Career advancement is tough. Not a lot of room to move around or up in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    none
