Pros

Child Trends is grounded in its mission - Research to improve children's lives - and all staff share this common goal. The work we do is interesting, and management is supportive of tailoring our work to our interests.

Cons

Writing proposals for new work is an important but disruptive (to current work) activity. Child Trends is still working to make this process less stressful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strive to hire more ethnic/culturally diverse personnel so we can better represent the demographics we research.

    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.
