excellent training but poor opportunities for advancement

Senior Project Analyst (Former Employee)
Rockville, MD

ProsLearned how to conduct an epidemiologic study -- something not taught in school

Conslittle opportunity for advancement, unwilling to allow current employees try their hand at positions within the company requiring different qualifications, management does not listen to the needs of current employees, too much oversight for each project -- too many managers

Advice to Senior Managementallow junior employees to grow by letting them manage projects once they have been trained; allow employees the opportunity to try other positions within the company that have different sets of qualifications

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