It was a good experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at American Institutes for Research

ProsThe company has a lot of nice people, which is makes it a relaxed environment to work in. The company is also located in a great location

ConsCan get stuck on projects for a long time. There is little to no ability for job growth. The company is basically a glass ceiling.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a way for people to move up within the company, which there isn't. This isn't a place anyone can work for a long time.
