A good job for someone new to the job market, but with no promotion opportunities, it is short term by design.

Research Assistant (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsExcellent benefits, international and congenial workforce, excellent research resources.

ConsA good job for someone new to the job market, but with no promotion opportunities, it is intentionally short term. It can be difficult to access interesting projects, due to the promotion policies for economists and competition for research opportunities and credit. Research assistants are hired on contract, so management does little to keep the assistants stimulated and productive.

Advice to Senior ManagementIntroduce a mentorship program for research assistants and add incentives for good work such as application processes to join mission work or small bonuses.
