Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward people in creative ways for their accomplishments. A raise and a promotion are always nice, but sometimes public acknowledgement or other bonuses would also work well.

    Pros

    Truly collaborative work environment; Supportive colleagues range from friendly peers to senior level mentors; Commitment to high-quality research that can be immediately applied in and disseminated to the real world

    Cons

    Variation in experiences of staff in different program areas; in other words, depending on a person's program area, he or she might have a very different experience in their workload, expectations from managers, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up your practice of soliciting feedback from all levels of staff -- everyone in this organization has valuable lessons and/or suggestions to share.
