Non-profit-level pay for hard work

Research Associate (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGood benefits, multitude of topical areas and expertise, casual dress code, terrific HR team, great on-boarding experience, positive experience with direct manager, interactive wellness and activity programs. Overall positive experience but not a long-term career place for me personally.

ConsMediocre pay, little to no recognition for going above and beyond (in hours, workload, or effort). Little support for transitioning out of your level or to another program or position. Too much focus on PhD work and little valuation for experience earned. Often too specialized to allow for generalists in certain fields.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your lower-level staff to get a pulse on staff morale. Tap into the solid talent which exists at every level of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
