Great benefits, and some projects great. No career support, and little appreciation of existing assets.

I have been working at American Institutes for Research

Pros

Opportunity to work on projects that could make the world better. Good support for families.

Cons

No career support, little opportunity to grow, constant pressure to bill to clients. Long terms prospects limited by inability to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

David Myers is still fairly new, may have opportunity to prove himself. Suggest he hold upper management of each division accountable for staff satisfaction and business development.

    I worked at American Institutes for Research

    Pros

    Laid back culture; dress is business casual, and the work is very stable because it is a nonprofit. Otherwise great.

    Cons

    There's a definite PhD/non-PhD divide. Also, the salaries are low at best compared to other work, and the offices are a little inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you pay more you'll be able to get better people. Other than that, just keep up the good work.
