    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -- Focus by most staff on research and benefit to the industry
    -- Great people willing to help when you need it
    -- Generous salary and benefits
    -- Nice offices; good facilities

    Cons

    -- New senior managers are convinced they are the smartest guys in the room, but pet projects have run WAY over budget and they are now cutting loose critical talent to balance the budget
    -- Overall intellectual arrogance is part of corporate culture
    -- Too much focus on selling R&D to funders disillusions researchers, who must spend time selling instead of R&D
    -- Most career paths are dead ends with no opportunity for advancement
    -- Management favorites can go years without producing significant results while award-winning researchers are laid off due to budget overruns
    -- Senior staff assumes good researchers are good project and people managers and don't need training for these critical skills. The results have been some spectacular and expensive project failures
    -- Senior VP in charge of current ERP project is determined it will launch on deadline despite systems development far behind schedule. Result is staff is being trained on systems that will change before they ever get to use them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down, take a breath. Quit trying to show everyone how smart you are by gutting improvements made by predecessors and setting unrealistic deadlines. Stop getting rid of key people you don't like in the name of budgets. Stop demanding time-consuming consistency in the many, many cases where it gains the organization nothing and actually creates more work. Don't make people managers unless/until they have demonstrated management skills.
