Health division is poorly managed and lacks interesting work.

Project Specialist (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at American Institutes for Research full-time for less than a year

ProsThe company has a great reputation, benefits, and work/life balance. Schedules are flexible, and there is an option to telecommute sometimes.

ConsThe work is mostly administrative and often hard to come by. The new health innovation sub-division is unorganized and poorly managed. As a result, many project associates and project specialists do not have enough work to stay busy on a consistent basis, breeding unnecessary competition and territorial behavior. The salary is on the low-side as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to junior staff and put more effort into effectively managing large projects.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
