Overall great company - but it all depends who your boss(es) and what department you're in

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Washington, DC (US)

ProsMany social events throughout the year
Good paid time off schedule
Wonderful office location ( The HQ )
Small gym with showers, etc ( The HQ )
Very cheap parking
Comparatively cheap medical / dental benefits
Relaxed dress code
Young staff environment
Sports teams

ConsThe department and time I was at AIR allowed me to advance quickly and work on and learn new things often. However from my co-workers I know other areas of the company it was very hard to get promoted or a raise, and that they were over-stressed and worked.

I can say as a whole the company provided me a very positive experience, but for others I understand and can agree with their complaints of departments that I did not work in.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on employee retention by treating junior staff better, ensuring the workload is not overwhelming, and giving their managers training on how to develop their employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
