Great mission and impact of work but collaboration was poor

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Research Triangle Park, NC

I worked at RTI International full-time for more than 8 years

Pros+ Projects where you feel like you make a difference.
+ Many outstanding professionals; world class talent.
+ Good diversity of work and opportunities to work on new types of projects with different methods.
+ Professional development is strongly encouraged.
+ Leadership is approachable and supportive.
+ Good onsite cafeteria and fitness center
+ Great opportunity for working from home

Cons- Collaboration is horrible; plenty of instances of one group within the organization actively undermining another group.
- Challenge of work/life balance and percent sold that exists here and in many other contract research organizations.
- Not an agile organization - they want to venture into new and innovative areas but aren't willing to do that with excellence - on par with the work they typically do.

Advice to Senior Management* Incentivize collaboration and reward good collaborators. There is talk and awards for collaboration for very large projects but collaboration is not consistently good throughout the organization on all projects.
* Disincentivize poor collaboration - historically poor collaborators should not be retained.
* Invest heavily in innovation, new markets, mergers & acquisitions, and emerging trends - you're investing too conservatively.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
