    I worked at RAND part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very low pressure environment, easy work, friendly people.

    Cons

    Low pay as a clerk, particularly due to having a maximum of 20 hours a week, and no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if adjunct staff were given yearly raises.

    Current Employee - Senior Professional in Washington, DC

    I have been working at RAND full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constant intellectual buzz. Huge array of public policy topics. Collaborative environment. Good pay. Great benefits (like getting paid 50% extra when you go on vacation).

    Cons

    Because most revenues come from government contracts, some researchers spend more of their time than they should chasing new business or trying to get attached to well-funded projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more flexibility to cover researchers for time pursuing crazy ideas or promoting completed work.
