Pros: not-for-profit, free coffee and soda, friendly people
Cons: inefficient management, unnecessary stress implied on temp employees
I felt good about working at AIR. I thought the standardized tests we were developing were fair and of much better quality than the ones I had in school.
We were using software to emulate artistic applications, which was something that has never been done before in standardized testing. Not only that, but AIR is the only company to be developing tests for the visual arts.
I worked hard and got along well with most everyone. There were some concerns I had about the management, but they never got in the way of me doing my job, and receiving much praise in the process.
When the project was coming to an end, my services were no longer needed and I declined a management position because I felt I was not ready to be in charge of other people.
