    I have been working at RAND full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice blend of corporate and academic/research environment. Very professional culture. Location of Santa Monica office is amazing. Big cubicles. Opportunities to grow if you are bright and dedicated and connected

    Cons

    Computing infrastructure tends to be a bit behind the times because of security concerns. No onsite gym. Cost-based budget model can be frustrating and confusing.
