Collegial atmosphere, bright employees, slow organization

Research Associate (Current Employee) Washington, DC

Pros- Collegiate atmosphere
- Collaborative/project-based work
- Quality work (as opposed to bigger firms)
- Cross-discipline work (Workforce, Education, Healthcare, etc.)
- Respect and trust among novice employees
- Support for professional research (at least within the Workforce group)

Cons- Slow organization
- Not very innovative
- Say they value work/life balance, but not always (depends on project manager)
- Pay is lower than bigger firms (Booze, Deloite, etc.)

Advice to Senior Management- Implement some of the innovative HR stuff you promote in resaearch
- Utilize the organizational psychology experts you have to enhance your own internal HR processes
- Really demonstrate you value work/life balance

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
