Supporting cutting edge science in a small organization.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boulder, CO

ProsUNAVCO is very well respected by the science community. The science areas supported by UNAVCO are cutting edge and are growing. The environment is more academic then business, providing a more relaxed working environment. Jobs seem to be fairly stable since funding is in 5 year cycles. Benefits are very competitive, while compensation is a bit lower than similar types of science supported Government funded organizations. A good way stop in one's path toward a PhD.

ConsExternal appearances are misleading. Management is old styled and non-supportive of current management practices (collaboration, transparency, inclusiveness, communication). With the new president some of these issues are being addressed; time will tell. The organization is fairly flat which also means career opportunities (promotions) are limited (so this is a positive and negative). HR is rudimentary and not always competent.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage and support collaboration, transparency, inclusiveness, and communication within the company and provide structure for the community and staff to get to know each other better.
