I worked at Center for Applied Linguistics full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company has great benefits and it located in an ideal location in DC, it is metro accessible and has some great places around to eat/shop. The staff is very friendly. This is the only company where I felt welcomed from all directions. I enjoyed talking to my co-workers and having lunch with them. Great work-life balance and you can work an early schedule or a late schedule if you want, depending on your manager.

Cons

Depending on your department, there is not a lot of knowledge passed down from management to mid-level employees. Moving up in the organization is not always easy either. Parking is horrible!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The departments operate so independently so departments do not always know what each other is doing, there needs to be a way to changes this. There are also a lot of meetings for higher management, and not a lot comes out of those meetings.

    I worked at Center for Applied Linguistics as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, good hours, work-life balance.

    Cons

    The flip side of the pros: a lot of people did not seem incredibly dedicated to the job. Often the tasks for interns were somewhat tedious, did not learn a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure because I was only an intern
