    Good benefits, good pay, not much room for advancement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsGood benefits, good pay, great 401k and health plans. Compensation is great for comparable jobs elsewhere. Very casual work environment.

    ConsNo bonuses. No tuition reimbursement plans. Feels understaffed at times. Not much room for advancement within the company or better titles.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Smart people, great benefits

    Assoc. Director (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsSmart people, mostly academics and journalists, working together. Nice office. Great benefits, including Incredible 401k: I'm now putting in 6% while Pew matches that and adds another 7%. The pay is great for a nonprofit. They try to keep pace with top universities and media outlets.

    ConsSome -- not all -- of the seven projects are beyond meticulous to the point of being anal. Internal memos don't need 10 drafts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome directors of projects act like kings ruling over their fiefdom. Giving them such power and autonomy allows each project to have its own unique brand and emphasis, and that is good. The problem is when the dictator isn't so benevolent and employees' only question is: what does the director want? That can lead to the paralysis of analysis, especially when the director doesn't clearly communicate or even know what he wants. Train, develop, empower and promote your other employees -- especially the young ones -- and you will have a happier, more productive workplace.
