    Fear-based institute that's behind the times in management/retention; experience in-the-news topics via panels/lectures

    Pros

    Committee Study topics and panels
    Close to the action of politics and policy
    Lectures series are hot curent events/topics

    Cons

    fear-based company
    Information is hoarded
    unclear goals; looking good cuts quality
    Endless rules prevent staffers from doing so much as ordering a stapler without permission
    management creates distrust and confusion among staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good agency uses open communication, not fear & intimidation to get results / create positive work environment
    As a publications company, supply tools/ materials and equipment that will fit the real daily needs of staff / committee
