I worked at Educational Testing Service full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The money is good for ex-teachers, who may have been making much less. The employees are wonderfully diverse. The Princeton "campus" is lovely, sporting a lake.

Cons

Developing test items can become tedious after several months, and especially toward the third year. As a non-profit, ETS doesn't naturally seek efficiency. This means that employees lack modern tools, and their work may be redundant because record-keeping and process are not... standardized.

    I worked at Educational Testing Service full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Similarly to working for a government office or educational facility, the work life style is very relaxed. there is an academic feel as if you were in a college campus. Many employees have been working there for over 15 years and more. They value their employees. A very different place to work at.

    Cons

    Not too much upward mobility. Tons of red tape. A lot of politics, but then again, when is there no politics. I do not hold it against them.

    Advice to Management

    none. I think that they are doing okay.
