Most hostile work environment ever.
What I dislike
Sexual harassment. Lack of support from management. Did I mention the sexual harassment? I know there is a local employment law firm that had an attorney whose entire job was AARP sexual harassment claims.
Extremely political. Sexual harassment is a core value - tolerated at all levels.
Lack of focused management and long-term employees who have burrowed into the political structure are kept even though they do little-to-no work of value to the organization.
Every man and woman for themselves.
It's a 9-5 day but you stress about what someone thinks you didn't do even when you're not there.
Support from management
Zero - especially if you're a woman.
Freedom to work independently
Micromanagement is a company core value.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Ironically, their view of older colleagues isn't any different than any other company.
I went two whole weeks without talking to another living soul except at meetings.
If you're there, you're never secure. Never think you are.
People outside AARP think it is outdated and out of touch. They are not wrong.
