    I have been working at Educational Testing Service full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - work with some leaders in the field
    - colleagues are devoted to doing good work, are great mentors, and are friendly
    - very strong research centers
    - good total compensation package: employees can be rewarded in various ways
    - focused on employee development
    - strong community outreach
    - focused on mission and integrity

    Cons

    - as company grows, business infrastructure seems to grow more and more complex
    - too top heavy
    - some managers appear to enjoy a punitive management style (fortunately, not all managers!)
    - it definitely helps to know the right people, although that is probably true of most companies
    - management doesn't always seem to take the opinions of stakeholders (and those more knowledgeable than them about process or structure) into account, making unilateral decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has been a lot of talk about innovation, but sometimes we spread out too quickly into too many areas without building up the infrastructures necessary to fully support them. Sometimes the best people to talk to are the ones who do the job, even if they don't have a prestigious title and haven't had the benefit of being formally recognized for their successes. On the whole, though, I think that the senior leadership has done a good job of growing and maintaining a company that has gone through a lot of change over the years.
