    I have been working at ECRI Institute full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible starting hours and work-from-home options; casual to business-casual dress code; friendly teams (depends on team); supportive managers (depends on manager); quiet location; free coffee and soda in breakroom; local deli comes by each day to sell food since there's no other option, except to drive off-site

    Cons

    Stereotypically-low salaries; departments tend to keep to themselves; pervasive social awkwardness among employees-- the kind that's actually rudeness disguised as social discomfort. Individual IT employees are helpful but the department as a whole is byzantine, confusing, and refuses to look into better, safer alternatives than Internet Explorer. This is especially frustrating when IE's failures prevent employees from using the software and websites necessary to do their jobs at ECRI. When people are fired, they are effectively erased from existence. The only way one knows a coworker was fired is if he emailed the coworker and it bounced back. This creates an atmosphere of paranoia, insecurity, and wild gossip. It also seems like a security risk, if employees don't know that a particular coworker is no longer part of the company, but he shows up anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the past go and embrace good change. Find a company whose methods are the opposite of yours and copy them, as an experiment. Drop lingering suspicions about whether or not WFH employees are working. Odds are, they're more productive than the at-office employees and if they aren't, their work performance will out them under any circumstance. Add tuition reimbursement programs. Offer competitive salaries.
