    I worked at RAND as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work on policy related issues; could work on multiple projects at once; projects only last about a few months typically so you can move on to something new fairly quickly; free to work on my own time- in and outside of the office; intelligent colleagues;

    Cons

    Pay is contract based-- so if you're not billing to a contract you're not getting paid at all. In practice this usually means that you're working on projects you're not as interested in, but in theory it concerned me that I could go without pay at times with out much of a safety net.

    I worked at RAND part-time for 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.
