    Pros

    The people at RAND are genuine, caring, really nice people to work with. They are always willing to help; the company culture is that of a family. Employees at RAND have a very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    The commute into NYC is often very long.

    Pros

    Great, family-like atmosphere. The president, if he likes you (or the person who referred you) will take you under his wing. Emphasis on work-life balance. Extremely well organized systems. Great salary jumps as you get experience and prove your work.

    Cons

    What kind of architecture/engineering firm doesn't use standardized specifications? CSI exists for a reason. The current system provides a lot of mediocre people with lots of work to do, which can't be transferred to any other company or job skill. Lots of friends/family members of current employees work here--which can be fun, but also leads to a lot of dysfunction. Very disorganized, indiscreet HR.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what other leaders in the industry have to say. It's a good company that could be better.

    Pros

    Friendly Office, lots of peer and technical support, fun social events, pretty transparent management, very approachable management

    Cons

    Nepotistic, run like a family business which limits innovation, clings to some backwards, inefficient systems that slow down work, no path to ownership/partnership or profit sharing.

    Advice to Management

    Create some tiers in company roles like associate, or a partner track; allow for more critical input about how things are organized to allow innovation and adherance to evolving industry standards, encourage more professional development beyond Lunch and Learns.
