Pros

Friendly environment, really laid back. Benefits are good compared to other places especially, time off policy

Cons

Really bad management. Company could be doing a lot better financially wise if it wasn't for the mismanagement. Salaries are at least 15% to 20% lower compare to the private sector. Since the company is a non-profit organization and most of the work is government contracts, there is a lot of fluctuation in the amount of work. Not a very stable company to work with.

Advice to Management

There really is a lack of leadership and poor management at IITRI.

    Pros

    Tuition and health benefits are pretty solid.

    Various company outings.

    Cons

    Working for IITRI was like working in the twilight zone. You really never knew what was expected of you because you were never really trained appropriately. This is mostly to do with the chaotic environment that IITRI has. Everything is pretty archaic and there is not a real solid LIMs system in place to assist the employees. IITRI really needs to train their employees properly and have management that insures their employees are well aware as to what's expected of them. No one should have to guess on whether or not what they did was right or wrong. That is why systems are in place so that people are aware of the standard.

    Advice to Management

    Management has to have a universal standard that all employees are aware of. There were too many different rules for different divisions or even rules that were different inside on division. The training regiment is poor and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Management also needs to make sure managers have social skills. My division manager lacked the proper etiquette when addressing his employees which made for some really awkward demoralizing moments.
