I worked at National Opinion Research Center full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nice place to start your career
Can form a junior staff bond
Challenging and meaningful work

Cons

Junior staff are undervalued
Huge bonuses go to the directors/senior-level staff
Completely merit based even though COLA is written into every budget narrative
Not a whole lot of upward movement if you don't have your PhD

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward junior staff more than you do. Cost of living should be given EVERY year!
