    Diverse Company

    Pros

    One of the best companies I have worked for. Top management understands the challenges of being in Boston and have instituted a telecommuting policy.

    Pros

    Exposure to cutting edge policy development
    Highly mission-oriented and driven to foster workplace values across the company
    Extensive personnel training
    Legitimate work-life balance
    Great benefits + vacation time

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive; negotiation will get you no where
    Constant reorganization
    Many departments lack an understanding of how they fit into the overall organization. There's a lack of operational knowledge throughout many integral areas such as project management, IT, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to focus on workplace values, you should also focus on building an understanding of what the organization is trying to accomplish. Infrastructure oriented departments (HR, IT, PMO) lack a basic understanding of company operations making it very difficult to carry out projects.
