    Researcher with over five years experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAmazing, intelligent and committed staff with a deep dedication to doing work that supports the non-profit and public sectors; highly collaborative environment with lots of opportunities to learn and grow from peers and supervisors; dynamic work environment with diverse opportunities to develop expertise in a variety of areas, both methods and content areas

    ConsAt times, upper management hasn't placed enough priority on business management principles; desire to go above and beyond for clients often leads to scope creep and staff feeling over-worked

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnlist focused expertise on business management in the areas of hiring, training, staffing

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's a great place to be from

    Advanced Research Associate (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsAmazing health insurance, excellent co-workers (peers not management), 401(k) matching, flex time, a great place to get some experience to move on to better paying opportunities and promotions

    ConsVery little work life balance with last emails frequently sent between 10 and 11pm, Lack of business management and project management skill, very little promotion opportunity, poor allocation of personnel resources, salaries much too low to take advantage of 401(k) matching

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with business degrees and project management experience to run this company. A Ph.D. in a social science gives you neither business management nor project management experience, and this is evidenced by scope creep and cost overruns on virtually every project.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at OMNI for over two years

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexibility with scheduled work hours and vacation time
    Most people you work with are very intelligent and fun
    You can work with a variety of non-profits and government agencies - great way to get experience and make professional contacts!
    Benefits - health insurance and vacation time was great!

    ConsNo advancement opportunities
    Company is known to be the "puppy-mill of evaluators" in Colorado
    Poor leadership and management
    Poor salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide management and leadership training to all supervisors and directors, including the executive team.
    Executive management needs to put feelings aside when their business model plays out and individuals leave for better pay and positions.

    disappointing, they move too fast without giving enough thought to decisions

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    Prosthey offer flex time. Do a good amount of activities to support staff in their personal lives. they work to keep a balanced budget and try not to start projects without having a plan to pay staff. Staff is generally not expected to work more than 40 hrs a week.

    Consthey move too fast in the organizational & administrative division. they don't always give enough time to develop staff's skills or projects before pushing them out the door and expecting them to preform.

    Fast paced, dynamic, changing environment with high expectations on quality of work and fun people to work with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of good people who are fun to work with
    Flexible and accomodating once you have proven you can be trusted to do quality work and don't have to be monitored.
    Interesting work that actually has a social impact

    Not all people work on same floor
    Work can be mentally exhausting

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to improve on promoting a wrok life balance and place emphasis on qulaity and completeion of work versus hours worked

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
