    I worked at NORC at the University of Chicago

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent co-workers make it a real delight to come to work each day. Topics that the company studies are also very interesting.

    Cons

    Workload can be very seasonal and often unpredictable. Information technology tools are out of date. Merits for promotion are not adequately defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider offering higher pay to employees to attract talent away from better paying competition. Invest in better internal software and IT tools.

    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.
