    I worked at Henry M. Jackson Foundation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The work is interesting and challenging. The benefits and pay are really good. The people at HJF are really good people to work with.

    Cons

    No loyalty to long term employees. The more you make, the more vulnerable you are to a layoff. Managers in certain departments rule by intimidation. The company has had two major layoffs at their headquarters in 2 years, with more rumored. The company grew too large for themselves too quickly and now long term employees are paying the price. I would definitely not suggest anyone go work at HJF until they can control their financial situation and get rid of the managers that spend their days reading magazines in their offices and complaining about how awful the clients are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your management staff on the next round of layoffs and get rid of some truly dead wood.
