  1. Laudable mission can't make up for flawed upper-level management.

    Pros

    The gifted and dedicated national network of trauma professionals working to improve the care of children who have been through trauma.

    Cons

    Fractured management by the bifurcated National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (at Duke and UCLA). Terrible internal communication. Flat organizational structure with a critical lack of middle management at UCLA offices. Lack of internal protocols or standard operating procedures for most basic management tasks. General lack of professional respect for non-PhD staffers.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and resources into building an adequate support staff at the UCLA office and strive for greater transparency across the two branches of the National Center. Stop asking academicians to perform tasks best conducted by people with business management experience. Establish a "corporate culture" that values the contributions of the non-doctoral level staffers who are working in the trenches with Network members.


  2. A great environment in which I was able to contribute to a project that has had a large impact on child trauma research
