    I worked at Rocky Mountain Institute full-time


    If you like the open floor plan - this could be a good place for you. It doesn't actually seem to work at RMI since people just end up hiding out in random corners of the building. In Snowmass, everyone sits in separated rooms. Snacks are provided, a nice plus, though this is happening in more and more jobs. People are smart in their own silos and willing to collaborate often. The biggest plus is the flexible work arrangement. The performance review process has senior staff talking to everyone you work with, which I think is inclusive and fair.


    The pay is truly sub-par at the initial levels. There is no clear path to being promoted. The process is in place, with a nice explanation of what should happen, but it seems to fall apart in practice. It is truly difficult to understand, and it is not adequately shared, how some people are chosen to promote and others are not.

    It is a fairly cliquey culture, which is distracting and a hindrance to the success of those not in the clique. Hiring decisions are hard to understand, with employees being brought in at all levels regardless of experience. Intellectual egos are large but remain passively aggressively hidden under the surface.

    Lots of growing pains as the organization tries to expand rapidly. Frightening thing is that the CEO has no intention of staying with the organization past a couple years, putting the future survivability of an expanded RMI in question.
