Company Culture

A place where you can go as fast or as slow as you want

Teamwork

Teamwork is a must at AARP. Varying views, opinions and consensus are a must here.

Freedom to work independently

While you have the opportunity to take initiative, that doesn't mean you can be a hermit.

Gender Equality

Women are the majority at AARP, and many of the high level leaders (including the CEO) are women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

That's what we're all about.

Career Development

Like anywhere, it's what you make of it. I've never received more training at another company though.

Overall compensation for your work

We are compensated extremely well for a non-profit

Office / Work Environment

The national office was recently remodeled... and it's BEAUTIFUL

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sometimes we try and do too much. Our mission to support the lives of the 50+ is admirable and enough.

What I like about the company

I feel like I can fail (and big) without risk to my job.

What I dislike about the company

Like any reasonably sized company, there is red tape. We hire some really smart people. Let them run and do.
