I have been working at American Institute Of Physics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent pay; fair level of autonomy; fair level of work-hours flexibility; very good benefits; gym on-site; problem-free location and parking; respected organization; high-quality leaders

Cons

limited upward mobility; not independent enough (too enmeshed with the organizations it serves), which limits our creativity; management does not believe in tele-working; long-term health of the company is tenuous because many changes are taking place in the publishing, and in science-research funding

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at American Institute Of Physics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. My IT salary was competitive

    Cons

    Biggest customer was taking business away causing a money squeeze and a lot of finger pointing blame games.

    Very risk adverse. It is against company policy for current employees or managers to give recommendations of former employees (afraid of getting sued over a bad recommendation?) So you can't use your former supervisor as a reference until he/she leaves the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop driving people crazy by constantly changing priorities.

    I have been working at American Institute Of Physics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AIP has very good insurance coverage, retirement programs, flexplans for child care and health care. Management is very open and communicative with employees. Exempt employees (salaried rather than hourly) can receive comp days for approved weekend work and there is some flexibility in work hours. Employees and managers are collaborative by nature. There are very few big egos here.

    Cons

    Salary here is slightly lower than equivalent government positions, but still is competitive in the non-profit sector.

    Advice to Management

    No need to advise management, they go out of their way to listen to employees.
