It all depends on your team

Project Manager (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGiven a lot of responsibilities from the start and so learn at a quick pace how the research projects work. Can move fairly quickly up the ranks if you're motivated, good at your job, have a good attitude, and are willing to put in the hours.

ConsVery little training, no consistency across teams (1 team will leave at 5 every day, another will be here til 9 each night). If on a team with a lot of work, you'll be expected nights and weekends to get everything done (at the same salary point as those who are rolling out early each day)

Advice to Senior Managementfocus on training lower level staff, as there's a lot of analyst turnover. Try to improve the project loads to make it more equal across teams.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
