    I worked at RAND full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Prestigious place to work; while the work force comes across as intelligent however with the intelligence everyone seems to think they can do what you're doing "better"

    Cons

    Very poor computer system with a very slow server. All IT systems seem to have issues that you wouldn't think would exist at this type of organization. Every work task seems to be overdue, and no time to double check work

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean, not what you think others want to hear.

    I worked at RAND full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have a strong research portfolio, or are a programmer interested in policy research, you'll have opportunities. Administration is an afterthought.

    Cons

    Administration is not highly valued. Career growth in this flat organization is difficult for administrative positions. If you're not interested in increasing responsibility and just want to stay where you are, this can be OK.
