1) Lower salary, 2) Long hours at times, 3) Cannot advance to high level without a PhD, 4) Menial tasks at times, 5) Conflicting priorities

Advice to Management

Junior staff needs to be developed more and given more responsibility. Its easy to get lost in projects, particularly high-profile ones but this can sometimes leave junior staff wondering what to do next.

    I have been working at Human Resources Research Organization full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flextime and willing to allow telecommuting some days Individual offices for each employee Collaborative, not competitive atmosphere Professional development at conferences Good for PhDs who are great at stats

    Cons

    Lack of developmental opportunities, especially for junior employees Promotions are extremely slow Very bureaucratic for a small organization Slow to adapt to change A dead end for Master's degree holders A lot of grunt work for very long Little support during low work periods Workload inconsistencies = unstable pay Even though you are salaried, you get paid according to billable hours

    Advice to Management

    Give junior employees gradually increasing responsibility Do more to ensure opportunities to apply learning and professional development at work Create some sort of development plan for non PhDs
