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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at PCORI full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    ~place is out of control, some things that happen to people are scary
