    I have been working at The EastWest Institute full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    EWI is filled with some absolutely great people from whom you can learn a lot. If you like to rub shoulders with the elite, you have a chance here.

    Cons

    Small organization, not growing in the current economy, but then again, neither is anyplace else.

    EastWest is a think tank with an amazing history and fantastic network that has lost focus.

    I have been working at The EastWest Institute as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    outstanding emeritus network, interesting initiatives, multinational, rich history

    Cons

    Serious management issues are present. Initiatives are driven mostly by new funding prospects to the detriment of institutional integrity and analytic follow-thru. HR is a mess. There is frequent turn-over at mid-level. There is a need for a coherent institutional identity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow funding to dictate frenetic changes in policy focus. Try to get the founder to delegate more effectively. Re-engage your emeritus network for more than fundraising.
