    I have been working at Child Trends full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A clear, strong mission to improve children's lives through rigorous research.
    Strong ethics and values.
    Motivated, productive colleagues.
    Inter-departmental collaboration, and opportunities to work on a variety of different projects and use a diverse skill set.
    Variety day-to-day, and in work content.

    Cons

    As Child Trends expands and grows satellite sites, tough decisions have to be made about how to allocate and use limited resources to meet increasing needs for space, equipment, staff, etc. Close attention must be paid --and a concerted effort made-- to ensure that satellite offices and employees working remotely feel included, that their requests are being heard, and that their needs are being considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue strengthening the process for supporting satellite offices and employees to ensure that their voices are being heard and considered, and that their needs are being met in a timely, adequate fashion.

    I have been working at Child Trends full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mission focused
    Care about quality products
    Work with very smart colleagues who share their knowledge to improve your development
    A flexible family friendly environment and schedule
    High integrity in the people and the work
    You want to be friends with your colleagues even outside of work

    Cons

    A very organized person can succeed here because it requires skillful time management to get your work done and not feel overwhelmed.

    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.
