    I have been working at Brookings Institution

    Pros

    People are smart and dedicated - they really want to be at work and go the extra mile.
    Great benefits - a 12% contribution to your 403b after two years. Five weeks of vacation.

    Cons

    Rapid growth led to infrastructure issues that are being addressed, but slowly and with complications.
    Each program has the latitude to set their own titles, salary and levels, so people with similar jobs can be differently compensated and have different perceived responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Issue a survey to allow people to bring issues to management. The annual "town hall" has turned into a showcase event, not a forum to voice concerns or ask questions.
