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

Pros

Amazing people, high level of expertise and training, willing to listen to any ideas on how to make the place better--and it's working. New staff council is a great addition. And our new location is Bethesda is BEAUTIFUL and right in the middle of everything!

The organization had a great year last year (after a series of good years), so the projects and opportunities are getting more exciting all the time.

Cons

None... well, ok, a roof top deck would complete the picture!

    I have been working at Child Trends full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
