    I worked at US Institute of Peace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues and a close-knit junior staff with opportunities to experience project cycles, travel (in some programs), and seek additional training through internal courses and HR benefits. Wonderful mission and well-respected in a wide array of contexts.

    Cons

    Hierarchical with little room for career development in most cases, and an overall frustrating inconsistency with engagement/concern for career development for both junior and mid-level staff. Budget battle in 2011 really changed the climate of the Institute, and for the most part not for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    frequent restructuring is confusing internally and to USIP's partners! Stick with what you know instead of constantly seeking new niches with less relevance to USIP's original (and well-respected) mission.
