    I worked at American Institutes for Research

    Pros

    You have your own office. You can close the door if you have noisy neighbors.

    Cons

    - Rampant favoritism in the Health Program. Promotion is not merit-based.
    - Most members of senior leadership of the Health Program lack experience in quantitative policy research and are uninformed about current health policy issues. One senior manager (who is not a native speaker of English) has a shaky grasp of the English grammar and often wrote emails that didn't make sense at all. Another senior manager has no research experience to speak off, but she was repeated proposed as project director simply because all she did was to name-drop powerful people she claimed she knew.
    - Senior leadership lacks professionalism in their treatment of junior and mid-level staff.
    - Very tedious work. It is doubtful whether AIR's works have any policy consequences at all.
    - Senior leadership refuses to invest in staff's job training, even on skill sets that are central to the staff's works.
    - There is a lack of collegiality. People are reluctant to chat with you even if you reach out, unless you have the same charge codes with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. You can't attract or keep competent new staff unless your senior leadership is knowledgeable, courteous, and inspiring.
    2. You can't stay competitive if you charge high hourly rates for works that can easily be done by someone without an advanced degree.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
