    Pros

    The prestige, the mission, the staff and the technologies I got to work with. There was ample opportunity to work with leading edge technologies and interact with many leading technology vendors and solutions.

    Cons

    Frustrations stemmed from the incompetency of some senior or lead engineers with no consequences for there errors or lake of leadership. Many employees have been there 10+ years and settled in their ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your stellar employees and hold the less stellar employees accountable for their actions or inaction.

    Current Employee - IT Director in Baltimore, MD

    Pros

    Being part of a world-class organization with a positive mission that actually helps improve the human condition locally and around the world. Considerable flexibility that helps with work-life balance.

    Cons

    Slightly lower salaries, no big-time perks (like stock options). Enterprise-level decentralization that, on the one hand, is good and encourages self-initiative and minimizes bureaucracy, but on the other hand is frustrating when centralized resources and/or funding are required and very hard to come by

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do much more to encourage and support entrepreneurship, coordination of resources such as core facilities, and put MUCH more emphasis on internal communication (like there's an HPC facility being built at the Bayview campus but nobody except those most immediately involve really know what's going on with it, or even know it's happening).
