    I worked at Vera Institute Of Justice

    Pros

    They do fascinating work. Admin jobs there are very frustrating in part because of this - you see great things going on around you with which you don't get a chance or have time to help.

    Cons

    Everyone's overworked. Some people are underpaid. Some of management shouldn't be there (the manager I had was one of the worst bosses I've met, let alone worked with).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Look them in the eye. Don't try to control everything. Live a life outside of work.
