    I have been working at AARP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Nice benefits, 3 weeks of vacation to start
    - Great mission, can feel good about work you're doing
    - Nice offices, nice location with lots of restaurants
    - Great cafeteria

    Cons

    - No innovation, employees have been their for a long time and want to do things the same way
    - Everyone gets incentive bonus regardless of performance
    - Seem afraid to let anyone go, no one ever gets fired so good people leave and they're stuck with incompetence
    - If you stay too long, you get "institutionalized" and it's hard to leave
    - Business model won't survive, do too many programs mediocre instead of a couple programs well

    Advice to Management

    Brand is muddied by too many campaigns. And so much money is wasted developing new campaigns every three to six months which probably just confuses audience and membership. Get rid of dead weight -- people have been there too long and don't contribute.
