I have been working at Child Trends full-time (more than a 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.

    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.

    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.
