    Pros

    You're working on premier studies that have an impact on policy (eventually) with very smart people in a generally fun, rigorous atmosphere. I made great friendships and learned a ton about research and my mentors were very supportive in my moving on to new endeavors.

    Cons

    Most people think policy will be more stimulating than it is - much of it is drudgery of collecting and cleaning data and writing very dry summaries. If you are passionate about data and helping governments make decisions, you'll love it. if not, think twice.

    Advice to Management

    The private sector consulting stuff was a bad idea, but you already know that. Keep up the good work where you are already strong.


  2. Great place to work, depending on who your manager is
