great place to make a difference

Consultant (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsThe organization values and empowers its staff, treats them fairly, and challenges them. It focuses on policy-relevant scholarship with thorough and well-articulated analysis and practical recommendations for our country's leaders. It is forward-thinking, anticipating and indeed welcoming change, and it takes its bipartisanship and its integrity seriously.

ConsI am unable to articulate any major weaknesses at this point, although I am still very new to CSIS so perhaps I will be able to do so later.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a fantastic organization - keep taking care of your people, empowering them and allowing them to flourish!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
