Pros

Some colleagues are great, but others have no respect for you as a person with obligations outside of the office.

Cons

Lack of communication from headquarters & sr management to lower level workers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication of problems or feedback from clients needs to be immediate and constructive. You say there should be no surprises at review, but they seem to come up every time.

    I worked at American Institutes for Research

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good benefits package, somewhat flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Without a PhD or a least a Master's, a job here is a stepping stone with little to no opportunities for advancement, lack of personal career development, very unbalanced workload (hot/cold)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on business development to maximize use of staff. Understand that those without advanced degrees are more than capable of excelling at challenging tasks and projects. Opportunities should be given based on performance and determination, not strictly education level.

    Pros

    Great colleagues and benefit packages (reimbursement for commute to and from work, full salary during maternity leave).

    Cons

    A lot of work. Staffed to multiple (READ: More than 6) at any given time. Must be able to multi-task!
