I have been working at NORC at the University of Chicago

Pros

The career development stages are clearly outlined, so that promotion expectations are managed appropriately. There is a lot of flexibility in the way you work and what skills you want to acquire whether it is by taking a class or attending a conference.

Cons

Recent growth in business has meant an increase in hiring; however, this has been coupled with a lack of attention on making good systems that make working processes sustainable for the long-run.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management could ask more junior/mid-level staff to take more ownership of how they want to see work processes, since they are the ones most in the weeds; instead of having management listening to staff and then making executive decisions that may not always appear to consider the input they collected.

    I have been working at NORC at the University of Chicago

    Pros

    High-profile management, opportunities for advancement (if you're patient), connection to one of the most prominent schools in the country

    Cons

    Low pay, hours may be sporadic (esp. for new hires), advancement may require showing management that you are interested, not just speaking up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff with kid gloves and they will do the same.

    I worked at NORC at the University of Chicago

    Pros

    somewhat good work life balance

    Cons

    Pay was horrible, mangers lied to staff, no one cares, random firings, did not respect staff, directors watched tv on there offices, HR kept door to there offices closed, and poor morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the mangers you have now and start all over. If I was the University of Chicago, I would be ashamed that NORC uses my name.
