Exceptional!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) College Park, MD

ProsWe do important and very challenging work on public policy. I have an opportunity to help develop and implement policy research that has the potential (and often does) make a difference in improving policy makers' decisions.

ConsMany experienced and new researchers are not up to the challenge of working in an environment that demands excellence. As a result, turnover was a challenge a few years ago.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to emphasize and invest in innovative practices that ultimately improve Optimal's policy work and ability to provide real-time data and analysis to decision makers. In addition, continue to hire employees who have strong technical and subject matter expertise and are up to the challenge of continuously improving their skills.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
