Pros

Aspen attracts young and brilliant people - the culture is the best part. Aspen works on a wide diversity of issues. Aspen unique in its decentralized structure, encouraging entrepreneurship, while streamlining the bureaucracy. Opportunity to travel.

Cons

Sometimes overworked, or working long hours. Nonprofit sector means less pay than a similar position in the private sector.

Advice to Management

Continue supporting the young employees with professional development

    Incredibly bureaucratic and slow. Textbook example of too much overhead spending and very few outputs.

    Pros

    -Nice perks, like like the Christmas party at a giant estate in Maryland were you get to spend the night -Despite signing up as a research fellow I just sat at my desk and constantly ran out of busywork, so ended up getting lots of schoolwork and personal stuff done

    Cons

    If you have any shred of excitement for research and actually contributing to relevant projects avoid at all costs
