generally good, a little uneven; kind of a blend of academics, government and business.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Research Triangle Park, NC

ProsVery strong loyalty to staff in most departments. Good gender ration, most departments. Very tolerant of gays, lesbians, immigrants and other minorities. Not as many blacks as in the general public. Reasonable salaries. Management with good values & intentions, who try to be fair, rational, principled, etc, and generally succeed. Non-profit in character, but not about philanthropy or losing money.

ConsLike everywhere, some groups are better than others, and the work experience depends a lot on the immediate neighborhood.
Sometimes there is too much workload on the lower level staff, and too much management burden on routine operations, and apparently a lot of wasted time among management. Even so, better than many other places.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou've heard the saying, "put your money where your mouth is"? Sometimes the vision gets lost in the scramble for more work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
