ProsA 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.

ConsAs 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 Senior ManagementContinue 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'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
