Good until it wasn't...

I worked at PCORI

Pros

- Extremely smart, hard working people
- Fairly responsive HR
- Lots of opportunity, as long as you're willing to put in the hours

Cons

- Run by scientists, who don't have a single business bone in their body
- Much of senior management does not practice work/life balance and expects staff to feel and work the same way
- Communication is severely lacking and silos abound
- There is almost an unnatural fear of the Board of Governors

Advice to Management

Communicate with your staff; define positions and set expectations upfront. Give people a chance to succeed - expecting a new staff person to be fully ramped up in less than two months is completely unrealistic and unreasonable.

    Pros

    some good people on some teams, good people on contracts

    Cons

    ~Unprofessional, lying, undermining, spreading rumors, obsession with getting promoted, threatening to leave, some sociopaths
    ~Apply for job internally w/out telling your mgr, no worries, HR will announce at a bar
    ~Don't apply for a job, no worries, someone will start a rumor that you did to get your mgr to hate you
    ~Try to leave, your mgr will try to fire you while you are in hospital or vacation

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great work environment, generous benefits, Spot bonuses, positive and supportive staff, open communication from leadership and lots of learning opportunities and room for growth.

    Cons

    Small start up that is still getting systems, processes and roles in place which is understandable as the organization has only existed for 3 years and continues to grow. If you're not flexible, hard working or want to leave your mark on a growing organization, then this probably isn't the place for you.
