    I worked at Harvard University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I met some of the best people, period. CEPR has a great work culture and truly does excellent work in Education.

    Cons

    It's hard to find any cons for CEPR. The only unfortunate thing is that it's hard to find an opening for entree-level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing, and maintain the great work culture of collaboration and excellence.
