Well-intentioned company - lovely employees but uneven distribution of opportunities

Pros

Really great people, an explicit support of work-life balance, good benefits. This is a solid company that is growing and not going anywhere anytime soon.

Cons

There is an uneven distribution of opportunities for growth - especially for generalist research assistants. Like many companies, the power structure is top-heavy with a lot of white men sitting there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diversify those in power. Consider a less hierarchical power structure.

    I have been working at MDRC

    Pros

    Interesting work, good benefits, and great people. The people I work with are smart and dedicated employees. There are very few duds!

    Also, work environment is flexible and supervisors are generally supportive.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be non-existent. Hours can be long and teams are under staffed. I see lots of over-worked staff and get emails well after midnight and in the early mornings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MDRC is a thoughtful organization with great goals and great people. Many of us know we can work elsewhere and can get paid more, but stay for the mission. We are understaffed, underpaid, and I see several people around me approaching burn out. Please hire more staff, adjust the scope of project work, and/or give higher raises! We work hard, are dedicated, and produce great work. Please compensate accordingly.

    I worked at MDRC as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart, academically oriented staff. Management always provided training sessions for staff, update meetings, and work discussions.

    Cons

    The company is so well organized that it is difficult to find areas to criticize. The company has been making very good progress in implementing cutting edge project management practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
