Good place to have been: Don't get comfortable and stick around forever

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsExposure to SAS, SQL, MS Access; I learned all of that from scratch during my time
Exposure to large data; perfect environment from where you can launch a career in analytics
Good hours
Decent colleagues

ConsThis is an academic environment, so don't expect to find good (or open) management
No teaming; people here work in silos and everyone has a sense of being a boss
The name of the game here is to get your tenure after your 2-year probationary period and then get comfortable; this may not be bad, but it breeds a certain mentality I was/am not comfortable yet
Complete disregard for the private sector

Advice to Senior ManagementYou don't know everything
It may do you some good to experience some other environment before returning to the Board

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
