Advice to Senior Management – Promote people on the basis of hard work, rather than the perception of it. Place impartial & reasonable people in key personnel management positions.

Pros – Good HR department. Most competent I have ever had. Affiliated with NCB, a financial institution, so there are great benefits in being attached to a larger company. Provided dental and eye insurance. Company provides general business training opportunities in house. Generally, good communication among staff from senior management.
Cons – Horrible workspaces with not enough light. Hard to see well at times. With frequent meetings in DC, the location (Crystal City) could be difficult, resulting in time spent travelling. Professional development opportunities in your field may be slim. You likely will work more than 40 hours a week if not in certain departments (such as IT, marketing, accounting, etc). It seems like there are more people running the organization (such as IT, marketing, accounting, communications, upper management) than people who are actually bringing in grants, contracts, work. Success at the company may well depend on department directors, some of which are great and some who aren't. Company could benefit from further developing managers with regular training, regular development.
Pros – The company's mission and values.
Very talented people to work with.
Cons – Manager was horrible and was also a micro-manager. However, senior mgmnt refused to do anything because they think she was the best. She was good doing her job but her management and people skills were horrible.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop playing favoritism and stop promoting who you like and who "suck-up" to you.
