I have been working at RAND full-time (less than a year)

Pros

RAND is a stimulating environment to work in. There are a lot of very intelligent people working here who do research and make a positive difference in the world.
Benefits at RAND are great.
A new CIO started a little over a year ago who is making a very positive difference in the IS department. He is putting processes and procedures in place and setting high standards. He has an open door policies and listens to his staff. It will take a little time, but he will make the IS group much stronger and able to meet the needs of their customers.

Cons

A lot of RAND employees have been there a very long time which can be good and bad. Sometimes you need some "new blood" to move things forward.

    I worked at RAND as an intern (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.
